We had earlier announced that Microsoft is running a beta program for the Outlook.com users. The company is working on adding many new features including the People and Calendar integration within the mail app.
The company in a blog post announced that a new Mail experience is being rolled out to all Outlook.com users in the coming weeks. Microsoft also said that both the Calendar and People will receive the new beta experience for Outlook.com beta users.
The new Mail experience interface will be rolled out with speedier performance and improvements to the Skype Integration. You will be easily able to start an instant free video call and also participate in multiple chats at the same time. The company is also working on simplifying the experience of using the add ins like PayPal to filter and categorize emails.
To use the Calendar integration in the Outlook.com, users would however need to enable the beta toggle which will be available once the new update is rolled out in the coming weeks. The new Calendar experience will make it easy for users to add an event by clicking on fewer icons.
Microsoft is also working on a new People and Mail integration which will allow users to send emails through People and also let them easily find recent conversations via a specific contact.
Microsoft is also adding the option to insert emoji and GIF when composing messages and add them to the message by clicking the new “insert emoji and GIF” button. If you don’t like the keywords suggestions then you can disable the feature by going to the preferences icon, select view full settings>Open Mail> Compose> disable “offer suggestions based on keywords”.
Microsoft is also adding Quick settings to access the most popular ways to personalize your inbox in one click. You can anytime change the theme of your inbox and also manage your Focused Inbox.
You would need to click the gear icon on the top right corner of your inbox to display Quick settings. As reported the new Outlook.com update will be rolled out by the company in the coming weeks.
