Microsoft has updated its simple yet intelligent to-do list app, Microsoft To-Do on Android in the Google Play Store. Microsoft To-Do help an individual to increase his/her productivity and decrease the stress levels. It combines intelligent technology and beautiful design to get through your daily workflow.

With the latest update, version 1.8.23, Microsoft has added the ability to create a to-do right from your notification bar. This will be quite handy and require less labor as opposed to searching through the apps, opening and saving a to-do.

Here’s the full changelog for version 1.8.23

  • Add a to-do straight from your notification bar! Enable Quick add notification in your Microsoft To-Do settings & you’ll be ready to go.
  • Sometimes the link was missing in the note when you created a to-do via native sharing. We’ve fixed that.
  • The default time was being set for the exact time that you created the to-do. Which didn’t make sense, so we changed it.
  • Using Outlook Tasks & Microsoft To-Do? Due dates were getting confused between the 2. They should now look exactly as you want them
