Home » Outlook 2013 RT Preview Comes With Windows 8.1

Apart from what we already know about Windows 8.1’s features, like the Facebook and Foursquare apps that will soon be available, or the DirectX 11.2 that will come with it, there other goodies for those who like it and don’t want to uninstall it. One such feature is the Outlook 2013 RT Preview that comes with Windows 8.1.

If you are a user of Outlook, then you will definitely enjoy the updates that it will bring in Windows 8.1, and if you have a mobile device that works on Windows RT, then you should have it installed automatically on your device.

Outlook 2013 RT Preview gets a facelift

Keep in mind that many features are not yet working, as the product is not fully completed. Just like Windows 8.1, Outlook 2013 RT is still in beta testing and in the following updates you will more and more of its features being brought live.

Nevertheless, in this preview version you can see the overhauled user interface of Outlook 2013 RT, which is designed to be used with a touchscreen. Also, at this time, the app only runs in desktop mode, as the Metro version is still under development.

There is an entire list of things that still do not work at this moment, but if you wait a while, you will gain access to each and every one of them when the updates start rolling out. If you want to see what doesn’t work yet in Outlook 2013 RT, here’s a list of features you will have to wait a bit for:

  • Macros
  • Microsoft Exchange DLP policy tips
  • No integration with Lync
  • Personal Archive mailboxes
  • Site mailboxes
  • Online Archive
  • Add-ins
  • Set IRM on new email messages
  • Custom programs

As you can see, most regular user features are available. They are working pretty good, but the enterprise side of the app needs much more work before it will be ready to use. Nevertheless, we trust that Microsoft is hard at work and all of these features will be made available shortly.
