If you’re a macOS user looking for a versatile email client today might be the day you’ve waited for.  Microsoft has made the Outlook app for Mac free to download and use from the Mac App Store.  Until today in order to gain access to the Outlook app users had to sign into a qualifying Microsoft 365 subscription.

With support for most major email providers including Gmail, Outlook helps you manage multiple accounts from a single app including the ability to view and search all your inboxes at once.  Outlook for Mac has been redesigned with a modern user interface specifically designed for macOS to take full advantage of Apple Silicon.  You can get the most from your Outlook experience on macOS by using widgets so you can view your notifications while using other apps.  Microsoft is also offering a sneak peek at calendar events in the Menu Bar coming soon.

Microsoft also understands users often move between devices when composing an email.  The new Outlook for Mac leverages a new Handoff feature allowing you to pick up where you left off between iOS and Mac devices. Outlook Profiles are also coming soon allowing you to connect your email accounts to Apple’s Focus experience to better manage your time.

Outlook for Mac is being rebuilt from the ground up to be faster and more reliable for everyone.  You can download Outlook for Mac free in the App Store and check out Microsoft’s latest offering.
