Outlook is one of the best email client apps for iOS and Windows. Microsoft releases regular feature updates for the Outlook iOS app each year as part of its Office Insider previews.

The big M announced its latest Office Insider preview (for Office for iOS) on December 31, 2019. That Office Insider preview provides some interesting new Outlook for iOS features.

Despite no new features for the Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Project, and Visio apps in version 2.33, the software giant has given all the attention to updating the Outlook iOS app.

Meeting Insights is one of the new features Microsoft confirmed for Outlook for iOS. That displays more insights for meetings in the form of related documents. Users can take a look at documents and emails that pertain to meetings from the app’s event details page as shown directly below.

Outlook for iOS users have previously needed an existing email account to utilize with the app. However, users can now set up new account in Outlook for iOS 2.33.

Suggested Replies is also a new few feature Microsoft has introduced in the version 2.33 update. With that, Outlook provides suggested replies at the bottom of emails.

Then you can select a suggested reply to quickly reply to a message without entering anything yourself. Thus, Suggested Replies is a handy time-saving feature that is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

You will need to be on the Office Insider program to utilize the latest Outlook for iOS version right now. Microsoft has requested that users on that program provide feedback to the changes by tapping File and Send Feedback within the app.
