This latest service will also be available across other platforms of Microsoft such as Office 365, Exchange Online, and Exchange Online Protection. This new addition from the company all because of its Email Address Internationalisation campaign.

Currently, Indian languages are under-represented online. Of the 447 different languages spoken in India, none make it to the list of top 50 digital languages.
The company has also said that around 8 percent of all the users of Internet are Indians.
Meetul Patel, COO – Microsoft India said,
Ensuring that language is not a barrier to the adoption of technology is key for digital inclusion and growth. Making email addresses available in 15 languages is an exciting step to making modern communications and collaboration tools more accessible and easier to use for all – something we have been relentlessly working towards. We’re making technology use the language of people, and not requiring people to first learn the traditional language of technology.
