Microsoft Outlook Now includes Photo and Scanned Document Annotation Tool

Microsoft Adds a New Annotation Tool for Pictures and Scanned Documents

Microsoft has introduced a new annotation feature on Outlook, allowing users to write or scribble on images and scanned documents…

Microsoft Outlook is one of the most popular email clients and it’s managed to command such respect because of its many useful features. Now, it’s gained a new ability and one that can be used in conjunction with a phone’s camera app.

Microsoft Outlook Now includes Photo and Scanned Document Annotation Tool

Microsoft has introduced a new annotation option that works for photos and scanned documents alike. Now, when composing a new message, it’s possible to tap on the camera button to snap a picture or scan a document.

Although that particular function isn’t new, what is new is there’s now the ability to draw over images. For instance, circling a certain line in a document or something within a photo in order to call attention to it.

However, there’s just one drawback to this new feature. It only works with images that are captured inside the Outlook app. Meaning, if a picture or scanned document is captured outside Outlook, the annotation feature won’t work.

The new Microsoft Outlook annotation tool is now available on the latest version of the Android app in the Google Play Store.
