Microsoft is showing its Outlook.com users some love by adding both Facebook and Google Drive integration. If you use Outlook on iOS or Android, you probably already know that you can link it with your GDrive account. Now that the feature's finally available for the service's web version, you can open file attachments and even edit the document right within its interface. All you need to do is click on the attachment icon and type in your Google log-in. The process is pretty much the same if you want to email your Facebook photos.

Say, you want to email snapshots from a party to a friend who doesn't really use the social network. Just click on the attachment icon and log in. Once you're done setting things up, you can browse both photos you uploaded and pictures of you other people uploaded within Outlook.com. From there, you can choose the ones you want to share with someone else. Finally, Microsoft made it easy to look for attachments within lengthy email threads. If you need to find something buried deep within piles of emails from your workmates, simply click on the new drop-down menu next to the subject line to see all the attachments in that conversation.
