Text Messages from Outlook

Hi everyone,

Outlook 2010 has the ability to send Text Messages (provided you use an Exchange Server OR subscribe to a Service).
The way top do this is from the Home Tab, click on New Items (instead of New Email) the select Text Message (SMS) etc...
However Outlook 2016 (and I think 2013) NO LONGER has that capability.

Question:
Does anyone know of an "add on" or after market product which can restore this capability to 2013 and 2016?

Help is appreciated.

I have always known that the ability to set up SMS text messaging to be an option available to users in OWA, regardless of the Outlook client version.

OWA > Options > Phone > Text Messaging

IMO, you won't need an "add on" product.
