Send is available for iPhone in the U.S. and Canada from the iTunes store, and is "coming soon" to Windows Phone and Android phones, company officials said. The app currently is available to those with Outlook and Office 365 business/school email accounts. However, Microsoft execs said they plan to make the app "more broadly available in the coming months."
"While tools like text messaging and IM are great for short messages, you often don't have your co-worker's cell phone number or an IM app on your work phone. And we've heard loud and clear from people at work, they want all their communications available in Outlook -- even if they send them from other apps. This is where Send comes in! Send gives you the simple, quick text message-like experience while allowing you to reach all co-workers and have all of your communications in Outlook for reference later.Send lets you quickly and easily send any co-worker a message without a subject line or formal email constructs."
