With over a million users, Outlook is one of the leading email clients all around the globe, and its features definitely make it different from other email clients. Over the years, there have been a great number of new features, improvements and new capabilities added to the software to make your life more organised, easier and simpler.
Winning over the hearts of Windows users, Microsoft has made the decision final for a huge design overhaul and decided to redesign Outlook to a modern, clean interface to help users navigate better, and earn a great first impression when seeing the application.
Outlook is capable of simple tasks such as reminding you if you forgot to attach a file to your email, spell checking, text formatting or inserting your very own digital signature with a click of a button, but it offers more than just that.
Focused Inbox is a new feature that helps you separate your incoming emails into two different mailboxes labelled "Focused" and "Other" which help you see the mail you think is important for yourself. The most important mail will arrive into your Focused tab, while everything else will be flowing to the Other inbox such as newsletters, computer-generated emails and promotions.
The Calendar is a great tool to keep up-to-date with your life and plan ahead for the future as well. You can schedule different things such as appointments for activities, schedule a meeting and invite the people involved easily. Reminders are also a part of Outlook's calendar feature. Once you set a reminder, it's going to appear in a pop-up alert window, making sure you don't miss any important event or deadline.
Dictate allows you to speak into your microphone while it types your words out for you. It's one of the Office Intelligent Services, bringing speech recognition services to the next level.
Listen to your emails
You can also listen to your emails through an Ease of Access feature. It goes hand-in-hand with Dictate, as it makes Outlook read your messages out loud, making it easier for people of lesser abilities to communicate, and can greatly help with multitasking and thus your productivity as well.
