Outlook.com is a PWA Now, Too

Posted on November 26, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Outlook.com with 19 Comments

It’s not just Outlook on the Web: Outlook.com, Microsoft’s consumer email service, is now a Progressive Web App (PWA) too.

I’ve checking to see whether Outlook.com—which provides email, calendar, contacts, and task functionality to consumers—is being transitioned into a PWA since a reader alerted me that it was happening with Outlook on the Web. And this morning, sure enough, I got the Install prompt in the Brave address bar.

I assume you’ll see the same in the latest versions of Chrome and the new Microsoft Edge (perhaps only in Canary). I’m still using the Edge Beta channel, so I’m not seeing it there yet.

Good news, either way. It’s finally happening.
