Outlook Add-in API requirement set 1.4
What are Outlook Add-ins?
Outlook add-ins (formerly called "apps for Outlook") are integrations built by 3rd parties into Outlook using the new web technologies based platform. Outlook add-ins have 3 key aspects:
- The same add-in and business logic works across desktop Outlook for Windows and Mac, web (Office 365 and Outlook.com) and mobile.
- Add-ins can be acquired from the Office store or side-loaded by end-users or administrators.
For more information, see Mail add-ins for Outlook on MSDN.
