Microsoft has recently promoted Javier Soltero as the Corporate Vice President for Cortana, who was earlier heading Outlook Mobile. Now with this move, Microsoft is currently internally testing Cortana Integration with Outlook Mobile for both iOS and Android.

This internal testing is currently being done by a limited number of Microsoft Employees, and if successful the Cortana Integration could soon make its way to the Beta before being made public for all iOS and Android Outlook users.

The Cortana Integration with Outlook Mobile will lets users to interact with the email app through voice commands and letting them to dictate emails instead of typing without having to use their mobile.

It will also help users to read the new incoming emails by allowing filtering of emails received through one specific person. The integration of using the Digital Assistant with Outlook Mobile will help users to send and read new and incoming emails without having to pick up their phone.

This would help users while they are driving and need to reply or read any important email which requires immediate attention by the users. As reported this feature is currently only in internal testing by a limited number of Microsoft Employees and if the testing goes successful then we might see the option roll out first to the Beta testers and then to the public users both on iOS and Android.
