Microsoft’s Surface Duo smartphones add support for inking in Outlook

The Microsoft Outlook app for Android devices updated to Version 4.2144.2 today and, while the release notes only ask the user to provide feedback, this update apparently (cheers, WC) enabled the ability to draw directly within a new email.

The feature works in much the same way as similar drawing tools in other apps and offers an eraser and several ways to customise the thickness and color of the digital pen.

Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2 received a firmware update earlier this week but it only contained a collection of security and performance patches. The original Surface Duo also received an equally dull update.
