Last year, Microsoft had announced an opt-in experience so that the users could try the new Outlook on the web. The main purpose behind this was to get users’ feedback that will help the company to reshape the Outlook app.
Now, after months of getting this feedback and improving its service, Microsoft has finally announced the new Outlook app for the web. We should mention that the revamped Outlook has some features that were already present on Gmail.
The company has promised to deliver experienced, fun and faster experience for its users and let them personalize their emails with new updates. Outlook now enables users to add multiple categories to a message and use Search to make it easy to identify their email from the list. In addition to this, the new Outlook allows the users to use dark mode on their Inbox.
It now also allows the users to send emojis and GIFs to contacts from within the service and permits the users to mark a contact, group, or category as their favourite for easier access. These favourites will also get synced to Outlook for Mobile.
Outlook has also included a tab for the users at the bottom of the reading panel so that they can read as many emails as required by switching between them and the easily go back to the one that they were writing.
Recently, the company had announced new features in Outlook to help the users to save time with intelligent technology. These features help users stay organized by helping them organize meetings, future events, and other things.
Outlook has even added the ability for its users to filter to adjust which calendar they want to search. They can also add a timeframe that they would like to search across multiple calendars.
The new Outlook has also made it easier to create meetings. Using the calendar, the user can quickly compose and invite people, find a room, and even get suggested times for when everyone is available.
Outlook now allows users to snooze an email for a more convenient time. When they snooze an email, it disappears from their inbox and then re-appears as an unread message at the top of their inbox on the time and date they chose.
With the new Outlook, it’s also easier to keep track of all the events that you have during the entire month in order to plan things better.
Online meetings get more options as well. So, besides creating meetings, users can now also easily join an online meeting, and quickly check how many people are attending the meeting.
