Microsoft's haphazard way of updating Outlook across its many supported platforms is undermining the product. This month's announcement about new Outlook features nicely showcases the problem.
And I almost missed it, too. These updates were somewhat lost in this month's mammoth list of improvements across Microsoft 365. But Outlook is picking up some much-needed updates on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and web, too. These updates are notable for a number of reasons, and they represent the first major changes to the product this year.
