Let’s be honest — we’re all pretty busy. While most of us are stuck to our phones and are texting multiple people at once, we don’t have time to be writing out all of the words that we want to say. That’s what technology is for, right? Predictive text and text predictions have helped us out on the likes of Gmail and iOS for many years, but it seems as though Outlook Email has finally joined the club.
Predicting What We Want
Although mind reading is still way off in the technological future, there’s no doubt about the fact that technology is able to put together algorithms that suggest various possibilities for the future – and that’s where text predictions come into play. For many years, those who use various platforms such as Gmail and iOS have been able to make use of text predictions to finish off their sentences without actually finishing them themselves, and we’ve got pretty used to it. Now, a new friend has joined the gang.
Adding a New Feature
Despite the fact that they are around two years behind some of the other leaders in the internet game, Outlook Email is now adding a text prediction feature to their service. So, those who want to write an email will be able to make use of suggested words and phrases to autocomplete the rest of the item. It’s been noted that this new feature will not only work on Outlook.com but also on Outlook itself. Many people will be able to make use of this new feature, but of course, there will always be those who don’t want their next words to be predicted. Thankfully for those people, there is the option to turn off the text prediction service.
If you use Outlook Email, you should be able to embrace the text prediction world at the end of this month.
