[United States], May 8 (ANI): Microsoft Build 2018, the annual developer conference from the tech giant, is underway, and, one of the crucial announcements to arrive from the event is the addition of payments to the prime email service Outlook.

With the growing addition of payments feature to almost all the apps or web services we use, it makes for a wise decision for Microsoft to add the new feature to Outlook as it seeks to compete Google's Gmail.

The new payments feature will essentially allow you to make payments for all the bills you receive in your Outlook inbox, without having to leave the email service. Microsoft is developing a framework that will use Microsoft Pay to handle bill and invoice payments directly inside Outlook, Engadget reported.

The company will introduce the feature in phases with select users in the next few weeks, followed by a wider rollout. (ANI)
