Microsoft Outings is intended to act as a digital travel guide, offering up a selection of interesting places to visit based on your interests. As first spotted by Microsoft leaker WalkingCat on Twitter, the app is now available on Android and iOS after having been discovered in testing earlier in 2017.
Upon firing up Outings, you'll be asked to select from a huge range of topics and landscapes you're interested in. After choosing from options like marine life, leisure activities, and night skies, Outings will then serve up a list of places you may be interested in checking out on future trips with a card-like interface. You can save ideas to make a bucket list of places to visit, or just share options with friends.
Here's a look at what to expect, according to Microsoft:
- Stunning images: Let photos give you an immediate feel for the whole adventure that awaits you.
- Get inspired to explore: Choose topics that interest you and swipe through travel stories tailored just for you.
- Save and share with friends: Instantly save your next trip to a folder for safe keeping. Share them with friends and family on social media, so they can be inspired and you can get trips on the calendar.
Outings certainly looks like an interesting option if you're bitten by the travel bug. If you want to check it out, Outings is now available to download for both Android and iOS.
