Microsoft is finally bringing Outlook.com into the 21st century

Microsoft is finally bringing Outlook.com into the 21st century

"Recent advances in programming, design, and artificial intelligence have enabled our engineers and designers to improve the Outlook.com web experience in several areas - and we're eager to get your feedback", Microsoft's Outlook team wrote in an August 8 blog post, noting that if users are less than taken by the new features they can switch back at any time.

Some of the new features that are presented in the Outlook.com beta include its brand-new design, which is reportedly inspired by the Outlook Mail app that is now available in Windows 10. But if you're not keen to wait, you can actually get access to the new beta right now. The page will reload with the new Outlook.com beta view (and you'll also see the toggle on the page).

It's as simple as that, and it will even work if you're an Outlook Premium subscriber.

If you are eager to test out the beta, open up Outlook.com sign into your account change the URL in the address bar from https://outlook.live.com/owa to https://outlook.live.com/mail/#/inbox you will then see and be able to enable the "Try the beta" toggle. The new interface looks a lot cleaner than the existing Outlook.com, and it better matches the Mail client for Windows 10. It's our understanding that this new framework Microsoft is using here is Facebook's ReactJS, which has become increasingly popular for building modern web apps. Some of the suggestions include restaurant reservations, business details, and flight information that can be easily inserted in the user's email responses.

The new Outlook.com Inbox will also group all of your incoming sent and received photos into a single spot. Microsoft will hopefully look at including more advanced search features, like the ones found in OneDrive and Google Photos.

More options to personalize your inbox and emails are also inbound, with the ability to mark certain people (or folders) as favorites to make it easier to locate close friends, and a new panel of "expressions" which gives you an in-line way to quickly access various emoji and GIFs.
