Dark mode

Sometimes, your eyes may get tired by looking at your PC’s screen for hours on end. Dark mode comes to the rescue in those situations.

Today more and more apps offer dark mode support in Windows 10. Now you can apply dark mode to your inbox too.


Now you can tag a group, contact, or category as a favorite in your Outlook account. Your Outlook mobile app is also going to sync your selection.

New message tab

Previously, many people had to repeatedly jump between the reading and writing pane while composing a message. Microsoft understood the discomfort and added a new writing tab at the bottom of the reading pane.

Time management features

Microsoft added new features in Outlook that help its users to effectively manage their time throughout the day. Now Outlook helps you to stay organized by creating event and meeting reminders.

Moreover, the calendar search feature allows you to look for a keyword, person or location.

Install one of these reminder tools to make sure you never forget anything.

Snooze your emails

Most of the times, we don’t want to see an email at the top of our inbox and you wish that it should disappear. Outlook now allows users to snooze those emails to read them later at some time.

Month view option

We always want to keep track of our events so that we don’t miss anything. Now you can see a big picture of the events with the month view option.

Online meetings

Microsoft added some new features in order to streamline your online meetings. You can either create a new online meeting, join an ongoing meeting, or see the number of attendees.

Microsoft encouraged its users to provide their feedback to improve existing features and design.
