Momentum adds Microsoft To Do integration to its extension

Momentum is announcing today that the extension now supports Microsoft To Do in its list of app integrations. The Redmond giant’s offering now joins the likes of Trello, Todoist, Github, Google Tasks, and more. The extension currently supports Wunderlist but warns users of the impending shut down of the Microsoft-acquired to-do list app on May 6, 2020.

For those not aware, Momentum is a nifty extension on Chrome, Edge, and Firefox that replaces the browser’s new tab page with an image, weather information, and content from the integrated apps supported by the extension. The integration with Microsoft To Do means that the extension will now support all the app actions such as adding, editing, and completing tasks. Users can also sift through their lists right from the integration on the homepage. This is particularly useful for those that use their browsers extensively since there will be one less app to switch to.

However, the makers of the extension do caution users that some To Do features, such as the ‘My Day’ list or recurring tasks currently do not work with the extension. These shortcomings seem to exist due to some “limitations” in Microsoft’s API for the app, the company says. The firm adds that it is “optimistic that Microsoft will update their API soon”.

It must be noted, however, that integrations are available only for paid ‘Momentum Plus’ users. Users of Wunderlist that use Momentum can head here for steps on how to switch to To Do. You can try out Momentum on Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Mozilla Firefox from their respective extensions and add-on stores, respectively.
