Microsoft is determined to bring the Focused Inbox feature to all of its supported platforms. While this pleases the community, the fact that it is taking the tech giant ages to complete the task doesn’t resonate as much with users. There are still a lot of users that don’t have Focused Inbox yet, but Microsoft is looking to fix that.
If you’re looking to benefit from the Focused Inbox on your mobile device, then you’re in luck because that’s where it began. Focused Inbox is currently available for all Android and iOS mobiles, so the next step is to bring it to the other platforms.
Users are pretty confused right now as to when they can count on the feature to be made available for their respective platforms. If you are in this position yourself, you need to check the announcement post for the feature which has been updated.
This leaves out two platforms many are curious about. First off, Windows 10 Mobile is slated to receive the feature sometime in April. While not the most convenient answer, it’s still something users can hold on to.
The other platform is Outlook. Both the macOS and web versions of Outlook are expected to receive the Focused Inbox sometime soon. In fact, the process of delivery has already begun, and it’s just a matter of time before all eligible users receive it. According to Microsoft, you shouldn’t have to wait more than a month to get it, meaning that February is when we will most likely see all Outlook accounts geared up with Focused Inbox. Keep in mind that the Outlook version of Focused Inbox is directly related to the revamped Outlook and users need to have that prior to receiving the feature.
