How many of you have wondered if Microsoft and Google services will work on a same platform, without having to install both of them separately. Turns out, that could finally become a reality in the near future.

Microsoft is reportedly planning to integrate several Google services into, including Google Drive, Google Calendar and Gmail. This, according to The Verge, will be only available for Outlook users on the web and apparently, Google’s services like Files and Documents will through Microsoft’s mailing client.

This integration would work in a very similar manner to how it does on the existing Android and iOS Outlook apps, with separate inboxes and side-by-side integration in the calendar, the report added.


Right now it is not clear how many users will get access to this, or when the company will make it available more broadly.

The new integration was recently shared on Twitter by user Florian B who tweeted screenshots that show a new feature in allowing users to integrate their Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Calendar into their account.

As per report, the Google Drive integration supports documents and files from Google's service so a user can quickly attach them to Outlook or Gmail emails.

Cross integration of vital services has been requested by users for many years but owing to competitive stance, as well as acquiring new users has meant that each service had a different product. But Microsoft is changing that, and we’re hopeful that the integration now happens beyond in the foreseeable future.
