New Outlook for Windows app

Microsoft’s Mail & Calendar app will no longer be supported beyond this year and will be replaced with the web-based new Outlook for Windows. But before the new Outlook for Windows completely replaces the default mail app on Windows, Microsoft is hard at work introducing some useful features, including the ability to open Microsoft To Do within the app.

According to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap page, the new Outlook for Windows will soon open the Microsoft To Do within the app and not in a browser tab. This in-app functionality will ensure seamless integration of the company’s two of the most important services. However, the overall user experience will depend on how well Microsoft manages to integrate the To Do app with the new Outlook for Windows.

The Roadmap page says that Microsoft has plans to release the opening of To Do app in the new Outlook for Windows in July this year. However, this is a tentative release timeline, meaning it might face a delay and the release might be pushed to a later month.

Besides better To Do app integration, the new Outlook for Windows will also get tons of new features this year, including Copilot, offline support, dictation, and many more.

If you’re using the new Outlook app on your PC, what features do you want Microsoft to add in the future? Let us know in the comments section.
