Outlook Lite will also soon support language translation for SMS, so users can read messages in their preferred language, or switch between languages with a single tap. This is especially useful for users who receive messages in multiple languages or who want to communicate with people from different regions. By integrating and simplifying SMS and email messaging, Outlook Lite aims to provide users with a more convenient and personalized way to stay informed and get things done.
