Microsoft latest A.I. tools will read your Outlook emails aloud

Microsoft is announcing a new feature called Play My Emails for Outlook on iOS. The new feature uses Cortana to intelligently read out all your emails, so you can catch up with your inbox while you are driving or simply have your hands busy with other things. The new feature is launching first for users in the United States. Android users will have to wait till Spring 2020 for it.

That doesn't sound like a privacy concern *at all*

It reads it with or without your permission. With your permission, it only reads it ALOUD!

Yeah no thanks. She went fucking rampant and wants to eliminate humanity. No thanks. I don't need her reading my penis enlargement spam mail.

Text to speech has been around forever. This is not revolutionary. For all the people concerned with privacy, this is no breach in that regard. It simply reads your emails to you. The company doesn't have any more or less access to your emails than they did before.
