Microsoft's new 'One Outlook' email client for Windows is starting to leak out to users



Microsoft's new Outlook email client for Windows, the so-called "One Outlook" project that the company has been working on for some time, appears to be nearing completion. Microsoft has been working on the new Outlook email client for Windows for some time now. Windows Central reports that some users have been able to download the new app, though it appears that it is only available for work and educational accounts at the time of this writing. It's pretty much what you'd expect when you walk through the door for those who are allowed in.


We've known for a long time that Microsoft's future mail clients would look and feel similar to the Outlook web app, and the new app appears to be exactly the same. In comparison to previous versions of Outlook for Windows, it is significantly lighter and easier to use, and it is significantly more powerful than the built-in Mail app that it is intended to replace. Microsoft continues to migrate its services to the web rather than running them exclusively as native applications, and as a result, the application is entirely hosted on the internet.


"We appreciate the enthusiasm for our next update," said Scott Stiles, vice president of product management for Outlook, in a statement to The Verge. "We will have more information to share in the coming weeks." "The version of Outlook for Windows that is available for download is an early, unsupported test version that does not include all of the features and enhancements that will be made available to our beta testers in the future. We encourage all of our customers to hold off until the beta version is released."


The application was expected to go through testing in 2021, with plans to replace the existing clients by the end of the year in question. Now, it appears likely that Microsoft will announce the new app at its Build developer conference at the end of this month, and that it will then be used to replace Mail, Calendar, and eventually other versions of the Outlook desktop client software. How does it fare in terms of performance? Even though we won't know for sure until we get our hands on the new app, it's safe to say that desktop applications that serve as shells for web applications have a mixed track record at best. Progressive Web Apps, on the other hand, appear to be on their way out, thanks to Microsoft's unwavering support for the technology.


Because so many Outlook users have a long history with the app's functionality, the transition to the web-based app will be difficult because it will feel like a radical departure from the previous experience. For the foreseeable future, Microsoft will most likely continue to provide multiple versions of Outlook for at least some time. The way forward, on the other hand, is crystal clear: there will be only One Outlook in the future. It all starts with the Internet, of course.
