According to Microsoft, the new experience is better than the support for Gmail accounts in the old Outlook app. The new Outlook app can now also access your Gmail calendar and contacts, so you get the full suite of features right inside the app, reducing the need to visit the Gmail website for almost anything. Microsoft is still working on adding accounts from other services, such as Yahoo and iCloud.

Additionally, Microsoft is working on a handful of other improvements, too. It now includes Microsoft Editor integration to provide spelling corrections and auto-complete suggestions. You can also now pin important emails to the top of your inbox. You can also delay the delivery of an email by 10 seconds. Users can undo sending the email in case they notice a last-minute error.

Furthermore, work and school accounts can now send polls in emails. They can also join Skype or Teams meetings directly from the app. The company has also added package tracking for any package numbers you receive in emails. Outlook will also remind you to reply to important emails. The company also improved the calendar experience by adding support for multiple shared calendars, multiple time zones, and a daily weather view.
