What are the improvements to Outlook on Windows?
The update does not include no improvement in Outlook interface design. Visually, you won't notice the difference. On the other hand, Microsoft has focused on improving the performance of its mail client. Microsoft's press release announces much shorter mail synchronization latency, much more reliable shared and delegated calendars, and a noticeable improvement in overall performance.
"This is one of those enhancements that should be invisible because it eliminates issues but doesn't change the core functionality of the product," Microsoft said. To develop the update, the company claims to have collected feedback from users of the preview channel for two years. “Since the summer of 2019, we have been tweaking the experience and fixing bugs” assures the Redmond-based company.
