Microsoft has announced a new update on their Microsoft 365 roadmap for Outlook. The upcoming improvement aims to enhance the search experience by making it more prominent and easier to discover. This will be achieved through higher colour contrast on the input area, border, and font. Additionally, fine-tuning will be applied to all themes and light and dark modes.

The new feature, ID 151024, was added to the roadmap on July 20, 2023, and last modified on July 27, 2023. The rollout will begin in September 2023 for Outlook users across various platforms, including the web.

The update will be available for Outlook users worldwide, including the following cloud instances: Worldwide (Standard Multi-Tenant), GCC High, GCC, and DoD. Once implemented, we hope this enhancement will contribute to a more user-friendly and efficient search experience for Outlook users.
