It’s almost Halloween, and Microsoft is adding a new splash of color to the new Outlook.com to celebrate Halloween this year. The new Outlook.com now has an option Halloween which gives you the spooooooky feels on your inbox. Unlike the recent Pirate Day theme for Outlook, the Halloween theme only includes a new splash of color and the iconography and the labels remain unchanged. But it still looks pretty cool:

It seems like Microsoft engineers made a theme engine for the new Outlook.com, which is built on React. While we will obviously get more seasonal themes like the Halloween theme in the future, it could also suggest a major new customization feature for Outlook that lets users built and use their own custom themes.

Microsoft’s  at the moment, and it offers a significantly faster, cleaner experience for the Outlook on the web. You can join the beta by simply opening up Outlook.com.
