“Focused Inbox” is an awesome feature that Outlook comes with. Thanks to it, you will be able to see emails that matter to you the most. It is good to know that for the past few months, this feature has been available only on iOS and Android. However, Microsoft has finally announced that it will finally bring the “Focused Inbox” feature to Windows devices, Windows 10 Mobile, Web and Mac.

We remind you that Microsoft has “quietly” updated a blog post from July 2016, where it included the release dates where it claims that this feature is currently available only for the users that are inside the “Office 365 First Release” program. However, all users that are inside the “Office 365 Standard Release” program will receive the new feature sometime in the mid/late November 2016.

However, if you’re not in one of these programs, you will need to wait for about 6-8 weeks to receive this new feature on Mac or the Web. When it comes to Windows OS, Microsoft claims that this feature will be available for all users sometime next month.

Below you can read the official announcement made by Microsoft:

“Office 365 First Release users will become Focused Inbox enabled starting in late October. Worldwide rollout will take 4 – 6 weeks. Office 365 Standard Release users will be enabled in mid to late November and will take 6-8 weeks to be available worldwide. Once enabled, users will be able to see the Focused Inbox in Outlook for Mac, iOS, Android and the web immediately. Outlook 2016 for Windows and Outlook for Windows 10 Mobile will show the Focused Inbox in November.”

It is good to know that you can always disable the “Focused Inbox” feature on your Outlook on all devices, as the application might sometime fail in showing the emails that “matter the most” to you.
