Microsoft announced yesterday that the redesigned Outlook on the web is now available for all Office 365 customers. The company has made the new web app available for select Office 365 users back in September, and while it’s still in beta for now, all Office 365 users should now see the toggle to enable the new experience.
Once you switch to the new version of Outlook on the web, you’ll see that it looks pretty much like the redesigned Outlook.com that also rolled out to all users last year. There are a lot of new features to check out such as intelligent search, suggested replies, shared mailboxes, and simplified event creation.

Unlike the Outlook.com web app, the new version of Outlook on the web for Office 365 customers hasn’t replaced the Outlook Tasks shortcut with the Microsoft To-Do web app. Microsoft To-Do already syncs with Outlook Tasks and supports both personal Microsoft accounts and Office 365 accounts, but it looks like Microsoft isn’t ready yet to push the new task manager app to all Office 365 customers. However, Microsoft To-Do should be available in the top left app switcher, next to other Office 365 apps like Teams and SharePoint.
Have you been able to try the redesigned Outlook on the web, and do you think it’s an improvement compared to the previous web app? Let us know in the comments below.
