TheSkimm and Microsoft teamed up to integrate the daily email newsletter with Office 365 and Skype, empowering its 4 million subscribers to participate in and start conversations about the news they’re reading.
By leveraging Office 365 Connectors, theSkimm readers begin to receive daily highlights of the newsletters into their Group Inbox in Outlook, and will be able to begin instant conversations including sharing and discuss with other group members right withing Office 365 Groups.
Additionally, theSkimm Skype Bot in preview provides an information concierge, with news and book recommendations within the Skype chat—when typing simple commands such as “news” or “books”. To try it, users can add theSkimm bot from the messaging app’s bot directory
To set up theSkimm Connector and Office 365 integration, go to Outlook on the web, then browser a group and from the far right of the ribbon select ‘Connectors’, then search and click ‘Connect to Office 365’. Once the Connector is added, you can visit theSkimm site and enable the integration.
You will now receive daily highlights from theSkimm newsletter in the group.
