That’s it. One Outlook, the email client that will replace the current version of Outlook, is officially available. About ten days after a first version of the application leaked, Microsoft has just released a beta version of its new messaging client that members of the Insider program can test today. To take advantage of this, Insiders who are running a Beta channel build of Outlook will only have to activate the small dedicated switch displayed at the top right of the mail client window.
With One Outlook, Microsoft hopes to standardize the interface of its mail client, regardless of the platform on which it is run. This new version of the messaging client, whose code name was “Project Monarch”, embeds new intelligent functions, combines several tools in a single interface and above all allows collaboration with several people.

Something new on Windows
On Microsoft’s operating system, the new version of the email client now includes Microsoft Loop. This new application, which resembles a project manager, brings together several components that can be edited in real time by several collaborators. These items can simply be copied and pasted into Outlook emails or Teams conversations. All the data they contain remains synchronized regardless of the tool from which they are used.
Finding important documents and attaching them to emails should also be easier and faster. After having offered the possibility of mentioning people in a message using the at sign, the new Outlook makes it possible to use the @ sign to mention files without having to search for them, provided that these are hosted on OneDrive.
The new version of Microsoft’s email client will also help you process incoming messages more efficiently. The messaging will indeed automatically pin at the top of your inbox the e-mails received that it considers important and will display on them a reminder inviting you to answer them.
The Redmond firm wanted to make Outlook the nerve center of all your daily activities. As such, it has therefore integrated To Do, the To-do list application in which you can drag and drop important e-mails to transform them into a task to be carried out.
Another inseparable element of the e-mail inbox, the integrated calendar in Outlook is getting a makeover and will make it possible to organize the most important elements contained therein within a single dashboard.
Finally, Microsoft took advantage of the explosion of telework among users of its messaging system to review more essential features. Thus, the invitations to respond (RSVP) in the e-mails integrating an appointment, will make it possible to indicate whether you wish to indicate your presence in person or remotely.
The beta version of the new Outlook is available today for testing within the Beta channel for all users running version 2205 or higher of Outlook on their machine.
