When accessing the address “outlook.live.com/owa/”, change the ” / owa ” to ‘/ mail’.
New design and more responsive structure
Outlook.com has updated its structure to enable a more modern, responsive and faster layout, similar to other email clients like gmail. With the change, actions like attaching files and opening messages should get faster. The search system was also modified, showing previews of files and photos directly from the results list.
Tips based on typing and organized photos
The inbox, in turn, will be able to show suggestions based on what is being typed, such as restaurant and restaurant recommendations and flight information, for example. In addition, now all photos sent or received in your email are organized in one place, which makes it easy to share them with others.
You can also customize your inbox by adding sidebar shortcuts with your favorite contacts and folders to make it easier to find. In e-mail conversations you can include popular emojis and GIFs icons.
According to Microsoft, the beta has no scheduled date to end testing and is currently not compatible with add-ins. Its use does not interfere with features such as synchronization with mobile applications and new functions – such as Calendar and People – will be added over time.
