Windows 10 Insiders now can access a great new feature which has been added to Microsoft’s latest mail and calendar updates. The version 16006.10228.20108.0 of the application can now be downloaded from the Windows Store and is expected to be rolled out to regular Windows users in the next few weeks.
The feature is special in the sense that the users can now annotate pictures and insert drawings by simply using their finger, mouse cursor or a pen through a new Draw tab available in the ribbon. This makes it convenient to highlight any important features on the pictures. Not only this, several colors and pen options have been made available along with the option to erase and changing pen tips.
This reminds me of the good old IncrediMail which also used to have features for making emails look fancy.
What’s Included in the Feature?
The change log available reads as:
What’s new in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10?
- Insert a Drawing Canvas from the ribbon anywhere in your email to add a sketch.
• Annotate any picture by drawing on or next to it.
• Use ink effects like galaxy, rainbow, and rose gold colored pens.
It would supposedly work well with the new feature introduced in the Android Outlook App which is there for making picture and document insertion and white board scans quick and easy. Also, this new feature by Microsoft will work even better with a touch screen and precision pen.
This latest move has given a new meaning to writing an email on Windows. Users can now also ink their message by the help of a stylus if their device supports a pen. Not only this, upcoming appointments can also be recorded on the calendar. According to experts, the calendar now has more of a paper planner feel for those who wish to keep a journal.
If you want to use this feature right now, you will have to change your Windows 10 settings to accept Insider builds of Windows. Right now, Windows 10 Version 1803 build 10.0.17133.1 is the latest stable version of Windows while the latest Insider build is 10.0.17709.1. To change Windows settings to accept Insider builds, go to Windows Settings –> Update & Security –> Windows Insider Program.
From here you can select to be a part of Active Development of Windows and then select Fast or Slow rings depending upon how soon you want new features to be added to your Windows 10 update.
