New in Office 2016 for Mac 15.33 (170228):
More than just email
Outlook for Mac has long supported connecting to and managing your Gmail. With these updates, Outlook will now also sync your Google calendars and contacts. The experience will be very similar to what you are familiar with in Outlook today, with support for all the core actions—such as add, delete, edit time and location. All changes will update back and forth with Gmail or Outlook for iOS and Android, so everything is in sync across all your devices.
Bringing the best features of Outlook to your Gmail account
Up to now, many of Outlook’s best and most advanced email features have only been available to those with an Outlook.com, Office 365 or Exchange email address. With Office 2016 insider preview build 15.33 (170228) for Mac, you will also be able to take advantage of several of Outlook’s advanced features with your Gmail account, including Focused Inbox and richer experiences for travel reservations and package deliveries. Additional advanced features will become available as we roll these updates out more broadly.
However, not all Insiders will see the new Google account experience right away. We will closely monitor feedback and expand the rollout over the next few weeks. Outlook will notify you when this feature becomes available, with a prompt asking you to add your Google account. If you have an existing Google account connected to Outlook, you can remove it after setting up the new experience. Insiders will see Office 2016 insider preview build 15.33 (170228) for Mac.
