Microsoft’s new Outlook.com beta is now available for select users with great new features. The Outlook beta includes an improved conversation view, an updated and faster search interface, GIFs and emoji input, and the ability to tag restaurants in conversations.
The update will roll out in stages, however, it appears that not many people are seeing the opt-in “try the beta” toggle yet. If you’re still waiting, this simple trick will allow you to access Outlook beta.
Open Outlook.com in a browser and navigate to the address part and replace the outlook.com/owa/ section with /mail/.
To access Outlook Beta you will have to manually edit the URL each time. Also, Don’t untick the “try the beta” toggle, as this will permanently remove you from the beta interface, even with this workaround.
The new interface looks a lot cleaner than the existing Outlook.com, and it better matches the Mail client for Windows 10. Microsoft is expected to roll this out broadly later this year once testing is complete.
Try this simple trick and let us know if this works for you or not.
