Microsoft is carrying on its quest to restore Wunderlist with its completely in-house service. The software manufacturer has revealed a renovated To Do app for mobile and desktop that provides a tighter integration and fresher look with Microsoft services. You can check out an “Assigned to Me” list that removes tasks from both Microsoft Planner and shared lists, or flag texts from Microsoft-supported email accounts to send them to a devoted task list. The Android Microsoft Launcher touts To Do incorporation too. And due to the Cortana-Alexa crossover, you can include tasks produced on Echo devices and other Alexa-based devices.
The visual renovation, in the meantime, is more colorful and comprises more tailored options such as custom backgrounds for every list. The firm is even making a not-so-fine grab for Wunderlist consumers. You will also find the apparently inescapable dark mode choice in the Mac, Android, and Windows apps currently, with iOS including the feature shortly.
Microsoft also pledges better synchronization that shares your lists all over every platform, comprising iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and the web. Windows and Android consumers also have the choice to toggle between work and personal lists to alter priorities when they get out of the office.
Speaking of Microsoft, a month after one more expanded outage stopped Xbox users from playing for hours—and with a lot of smaller problems in between—the firm’s network was once again down. Earlier, a number of users cannot log in or do much other than perhaps see Netflix on their devices, after hours of issues and over an hour and a half after the support account claimed that the team was aware of issues. Naturally, the status page of Xbox Live is the best place to see for updates, and it showed the issue was present.
