To make the process of answering emails easier than ever before, Microsoft has added support for its Outlook and Calendar applications to the Hololens app. The application not only allows users to view their email in augmented reality, but it also helps them access information when separated from their smartphone or PC.

The Hololens app allows users to bring up their Outlook and Mail applications anytime or place when used in conjunction with the Hololens AR headset. The program places the user's calendar and inbox on a virtual surface that can be checked as needed. Users can then customize these applications based on their personal preferences.

While the technology is still being developed, the AR email application demonstrates how new technology can be used to improve office productivity.
