Microsoft’s Outlook Mobile app is about to add an algorithmic newsfeed for enterprise accounts. The new feature will roll out later this month on the app’s Search page, and it will surface upcoming meetings, posts from SharePoint and Yammer, and a selection of other organizational content personalized for every user.
“The new feed allows new and existing content to be intermingled and ranked by what is currently the most important insight for the user. The ranking is personal and adapts to the usage patterns of each user by customizing the content types that the user is most interested in, Microsoft explained earlier this week on the Microsoft 365 Admin Center.
A toggle will be available in the upper right-hand corner of the Outlook Mobile Search page to let users switch between the upcoming feed experience and the sections experience that’s currently available on the Search page. “The section toggle is a temporary feature that will be removed when all the content available in the sections today can be found elsewhere in the OM app, either in the feed or in other features,” Microsoft also explained.
Microsoft expects to start rolling out this new feature in mid-June and all Outlook Mobile users should have it by early August. This new algorithmic newsfeed won’t be available for GCC accounts, and IT Admins in other organizations will also be able to turn it off for their users.
