Microsoft opens up Outlook for Mac preview to all users, encourages them to try out Google Calendar integration

Microsoft recently announced Google Calendar and Contacts integration in the Outlook for Mac app. The company also announced that it’s bringing Outlook’s Focused Inbox to users using Gmail in Outlook for Mac. The company actually started testing these new integrations with Office Insiders in the Fast Ring, but now it’s opening up the testing to all users thanks to the expanded preview of Outlook on Mac.

The company stated in a blog post that it needs some more feedback on the Google Calendar and Contacts integration on Outlook for Mac — which is why it’s opening up a new worldwide preview of the new features that will be available until the 30th of June:

“We still need some additional feedback before making these updates broadly available. Today, we are announcing a worldwide preview of these features that will run until June 30, 2017. During this time, anyone can install the earliest Outlook for Mac Preview build and help us test the new Google Account experience. You will have access to the same experience as our Insider Fast community—without the requirement of being an existing Office 365 customer.”

If you are a Mac user and want to give the new Google integration a try, you can get the Outlook preview for your Mac here.
