If you’re an Outlook.com users, the keep an eye out for a new feature known as “Interesting.” This is a calendar feature that is designed to help the user keep track of special events that are destined to happen in 2016 or any other year. For example, Interesting would help users keep track of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

This is happening no sooner after it was announced that Microsoft and PicsArt were partnering to help empower Brazilians, along with a plan to use Microsoft services to help computer users keep up with the games.

Here’s a snippet from the software giant’s blog post:

Today, we are introducing Outlook Interesting calendar—special calendar additions that help you track your favorite events. You will be able to add the 2016 Summer Games in Rio—as well as other popular sports—to your calendar. From the gold medal round of boxing to swimming relays to the gymnastic routines—we have you covered. Powered by Bing, Outlook Interesting calendar lets you browse a curated list of Summer Games, sports leagues and teams and add them to your calendar. Once added, your events will show up on your Outlook calendar across all your devices. It’s simple, intuitive and ensures you don’t miss a thing.

To take advantage of this new feature, you must be running the newest version of the Web App. The new version is still being rolled out despite being available for months now. We understand that migration is moving along slowly, and folks who are sharing calendars and signing into their Windows 10 Mobile or Windows Phone device with an Outlook account, will be the last ones to be migrated to the new version of the email Web App.

Microsoft expects everyone to be up and running with the new Outlook.com before the August 31, 2016, deadline.
