Windows 11 and Windows 10 to get a new Outlook app

Outlook for Windows 11

Outlook for Windows 11 and Windows 10 will be getting a whole
new look and it will replace the existing Outlook clients next
year, but a public preview is expected to land in the coming
weeks.

Like other tech companies, Microsoft is involved in the
creation of multiple desktop clients for services like Outlook
and OneNote. Microsoft has already confirmed that it plans to
unify the OneNote experience on Windows. Fortunately, the firm
has a plan to consolidate its Outlook lineup too.

Microsoft has been internally working on a new Outlook client
for Windows 10/11 and the project is dubbed “Project Monarch”.
Previous reports suggested that this new Outlook project is
part of the tech giant’s “One Outlook” vision” and it will
eventually replace the current Mail and Calendar apps which
ship on Windows 11 and Windows 10.

Apparently, we’ll be getting a new Outlook client sooner than
expected and the first preview will be released this year, most
likely ahead of
Windows 11’s launch.

Outlook client

Microsoft’s One Outlook client, which leaked online earlier
this year, has been updated and is now simply called “Outlook”
with a beta label. This suggests that a public preview is
around the corner.

As you can see in the below GIF, Outlook is also getting a new
loading animation, similar to what we’ve on the web version.

Outlook PWA

The new Outlook client will work across Windows, macOS and the
web. In other words, Outlook’s new app will eventually replace
all existing Outlook desktop clients. Outlook desktop client
(Win32), UWP (Mail & Calendar) and Outlook for Mac will be
replaced with
“One Outlook”.

A new design

Earlier this year,
Microsoft teased a new look for Outlook with a
screenshot in the release notes of Office suite. The below
screenshot appears to show an upcoming version of the upgraded
web version of the Outlook app that the software giant will be
bundling with Windows 11 version 22H2 (next year’s fall
update).

For now, Windows 11 will ship with the existing Mail & Calendar
app, which will be updated with rounded corners and new WinUI
controls.

Of course, the new Outlook features rounded corners and new
icons (they have rounded edges too).

It’s important to understand that the new client might not look
like the mockup posted by Microsoft, but it could be similar.
