Microsoft is adding several new apps to Outlook on iOS, the company announced Thursday.

The updated email application will feature collaborations with Evernote, GIPHY, Nimble, Trello and Smartsheet. With the new add-ons, users will be able to access the features of each company from within Outlook.

The Evernote partnership, for example, will allow users to save emails directly to their notes, while Nimble will provide social profiles for contacts in the email app. GIF search engine GIPHY lets you reply to emails with GIFS.

Microsoft is also incorporating its Dynamics 365 platform and translator app into the application in the update. Bringing the Dynamics 365 business platform to email means you can view records of previous interactions with contacts from inside the email.

To enable these add-ons, users have to go to settings and activate the ones they want to use. Then, an icon will appear inside email headers allowing them to access the feature.

The new update is rolling out to Office 365 customers Thursday, and will be gradually extended to Outlook.com users.
