Microsoft is beginning to implement its new Outlook.com design for all users in the coming weeks. The redesigned Outlook.com first entered the beta in August, and Microsoft also recently began testing the user interface and offers improvements to the calendar sections and people in the mail service. The new mail design within Outlook.com will now be standard for all users in the coming weeks, with no need to activate beta mode.
All Outlook.com users can also choose to test Microsoft calendar and people changes, which include a redesigned look and better contact information on the profile cards. General changes to the mail portion of Outlook.com include better Skype integration, with support for video calls within an inbox. Microsoft has also modified the category organization, added new themes for inboxes, and improved the interface for using add-ons in Outlook.com.
New Outlook.com calendar
While the mail section of Outlook.com will be launched as the default for all users, Microsoft seems to be testing its calendar and people even more. Alternating beta will remain for these updates, allowing Outlook.com users to change their calendar to the existing user interface until information about the changes has been collected. Microsoft does not reveal when the calendar and people sections will automatically update for everyone in the new user interface.
