For some reason, Microsoft pays more attention to the development of Outlook on other platforms, than on its native environment. In other words, the company provides more frequent updates, and delivers more features to Android and iOS versions of Outlook, than to the Windows 10 version.

However, as Outlook is one of the most popular email services for Windows, Microsoft decided that it’s worth delivering frequent updates and new features to this version, as well. The first feature already available on Android and iOS, that’s going to arrive to Outlook Mail on Windows 10 is Focused Inbox.

Focused Inbox is the feature that allows you to set the priority of emails, something like in Gmail. Instead of showing all messages equally, with Focused Inbox, you’ll see messages with higher priority first.

As for the other features that should make their way to Outlook Mail for Windows 10, Microsoft also plans to bring  @-mentions and cloud attachments, but nothing more was specified.

Microsoft officials confirmed that the company wants to bring the same Outlook experience to every platform. This means that updates and new features are going to be released at the same time. Time will tell if Microsoft respects this promise.

All these features should arrive on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile versions of Outlook by the year’s end. Of course, as soon as they’ve been implemented, we’re going to make sure to tell you about it.
