Windows 10 Preview Brings New Calendar and Outlook App
We might be a little far from the official release date of the operating system by Microsoft; however, the Windows 10 preview program surely has the juice to keep us glued to the news.
It has been revealed recently that the preview is adding some new features to be tested out prior to the full release. More specifically, we have word that the new Outlook app is going to accompany the Windows 10 preview. This comes in addition to the new Calendar app.
Microsoft has explained what’s new in both of the apps in a blogpost, here’s a piece from there:
These new apps bring improved performance and a familiar three-pane email UI, with a toggle to quickly move between your email and calendar. Mail includes customizable Swipe Gestures, letting you swipe right or left to take actions like delete, flag, move or mark as read/unread. Also check out the new email authoring experience. Mail leverages the familiar and rich capability of Word to that allows you to easily insert tables, add pictures and use bullets and color to your text.
Moving on the new Outlook app is also going to support numerous other features like Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, IMAP, POP.
In the new build of the Windows 10 preview program they have also improved Start, Taskbar, Task View, Virtual Desktop and Action Center as well as some “continuum improvements.”
Swipes were expected to be included in the new version of the apps, I think that they are going to increase the ease of use seeing how the OS is being developed to be optimized for touch devices.
