New app in Windows 10 will enable writing emails with a stylus
July 1, 2018, 2:01 pm

Microsoft added Windows Ink in its Anniversary Update to improve stylus support for devices with a pen. Since then the software giant has been gradually improving its inking and is now bringing stylus support to its new Mail app in Windows 10.

Windows Insiders can now test the latest Mail app update and even write an entire email with a stylus using the different options and colors that come with this new feature. The new Mail app is expected to ship along with Microsoft’s next major Windows 10 update, currently codenamed Redstone 5 that is slated to arrive in September.

The addition of inking support in the Mail app and SwiftKey for Windows 10 could come at an important time for Windows 10 and its future on new dual-screen devices. These dual-screen devices will likely focus on stylus input to serve as notepads, and Dell is even reportedly working on its own dual-screen devices, alongside Lenovo and Asus.
