“Project Monarch” Single Outlook App still to come this year
Soon, the Mail and calendar App Outlook in Windows 10 is due to expire. Microsoft wants you to replace it with a new cloud-based Version, which will unify the currently used different versions, according to a report in the US media “Windows Central”.
Currently, there are a number of various Outlook Clients, including Outlook Web, Outlook (Win32) for Windows, Outlook for Mac, iOS and Android, as well as Mail & calendar in Windows 10. The latter is integrated into Windows and provides known basic E-Mail and calendar functions, such as Out-of-Office notifications, shared calendars, and the like.
According to the Report from Windows Centralto not was the subject of Microsoft, so far, the aim of these different versions together, and by the traditional Outlook App, which is part of the Microsoft 365 Office Suite, replaced. They offer more robust features that save E-Mails on the host client. Microsoft will call the project “Project Monarch”. In addition to the alleged higher robustness of the web interface should also allow for a tight Integration with the other Microsoft 365 Apps, such as Teams, and To-Do.
The report from Windows Central is likely to correspond to the truth – Lynn Ayres, Vice President of Outlook, said this at the Ignite conference last September, that you want to convert Outlook to a “personal organizer” – one that can integrate deeper into the Teams and schedule meetings. You have not described the project as “One Outlook”Vision, mention of “Monarch” mind. Instead, they reported that one of its short-term priorities will be to provide Outlook users with more expressive “Reactions”Emoji in the Hand.
According to Windows Central, Microsoft wants to go towards the end of this year with the preview of his “Monarch”Clients at the Start of 2022 will be the Mail & Calendar App in Windows 10 will be replaced. Further versions will follow in time.
