Microsoft has announced that it has expanded the Play My Emails feature in its Outlook mobile apps to French and Spanish speakers. Previously, the feature was limited to English and Portuguese speakers.

For those not conversant with the feature, it is designed to read both emails and upcoming events for Outlook users to make it easier for them to stay up-to-date with everything that’s happening in the inbox.

And now, Microsoft is expanding the feature’s capabilities to two more languages, bringing the total number of supported languages to four.

To access the feature in these new languages, you must be either Outlook for iOS or Android. You must also have an Office 365 work account, an Outlook account, or a Gmail account signed in to Outlook mobile.

Next, you must also ensure that you’re connected to a Bluetooth or wired audio device, then select the Play icon in the notification that appears at the bottom of the screen.
