Microsoft has announced a new major redesign coming to Outlook on the mac which will launch mid-October, likely alongside macOS Big Sur. macOS Big Sur yet has an official release date from Apple, however, we can expect to see them prior to new Macs in November.
The new Outlook design includes more fluent icons, and rounded corners, much like the macOS redesign itself. The new update gets rid of the texture-based design language Outlook currently has and opts for more transparency and color across the app.
There are also new views for viewing and composing emails with panels and collapsible modes users can customize their experience to new levels. As The Verge reports Outlook’s calendar has gotten a major redesign as well with new search features and the ability to group calendars find with Office 365.
Microsoft also announced major changes coming to its iOS and Android app. Microsoft says these new changes which include an iOS 14 widget for your Outlook email, emoji email reactions, and voice commands will be rolling out in the coming weeks.
