A new version of Outlook, e-mail from Microsoft, has begun to arrive for users. The change came a year after the application redesign was announced in September last year. The e-mail system offers integration with Skype, with advantages for video calls, in addition to search suggestions, specific section for files, intelligent responses and easier event setup. The objective is to meet the daily needs of users and increase the efficiency of the platform's functions.
Just as Google did in the recent change to Gmail, the company responsible for Windows also offers a button to switch between the beta and classic versions in the inbox. The intention is to offer freedom of use of the layout to users, according to their preference. Check the list below for the main features of the new Outlook.
