      Thanks for your interest in the new Outlook Web! At this point, we have begun work to offer an integrated Chat experience in the new Outlook Web.

      Just like there is a new (and better) Outlook Web, you can expect a new (and better) Chat experience as well! We can’t wait to show it off to you, but we must, as we need to make sure it is of high quality before you see it. :)

      You will be able to use Chat in Outlook Web again at some point in the near future, but until then, brb.

    • Distribution Groups removed from settings menu.

      Need to be able to access Distribution Groups (not Office 365 Groups) from OWA like in old version so users can self-service join/leave.

      • Why does it open a new window every single time you toggle between calendar and email?

        There's no need to open a new browser window. Just toggle within the same window.

        • DO NOT OPEN CALENDAR, CONTACTS or TASKS in a new window!

          Do not open calendar, contacts or tasks in a new window, or at least make that configurable!

          If you're using a browser-app window (Chrome is capable of that) than you have an application window for Outlook 365, with Icon on the desktop and all, and you have no tabs in that window.
          If the calendar and the others are opened in a new window, a new browser window with that tab opens and you loose the overview you have with that integrated browser-web-application.

          So for now I am back to the old version due to this.

          • Add more themes!

            Although there is a different range of themes, it'd be nicer if there were more as some of them are distracting or too childish.

                • Bug when using shift+arrow keys to select characters

                  When using shift+arrow keys to select part of the text while, for instance, writing an email, it automatically deselects the text if I'm trying to select more than one character. Similarly, if I use ctrl+shift+arrow keys to select entire words, it deselects if I try to select more than one word. This worked fine in the previous Outlook. (I am using Firefox on Windows 10)

                    Thank you for taking the time to report this issue, as well as trying out the new Outlook on the Web experience.

                    I just wanted to let you know that we have made a fix on our side to work around the issue (which is rolling out).

                    Also, Firefox 65 has fixed this issue as well. So I would recommend checking your browsers and make sure they are up to date, or wait a few more days for our fix to fully roll out.

                    Thanks

                    David Los

                            The fonts are way too small. I work on my notebook a lot and my eyes are hurting after I've used the new outlook on the web for some minutes

                                  It was easier to see emails that I had marked with flags before because the flags were bright red and filled in. The new ones are only outlined and not as obvious.

                                  • Don't fix what isn't broken.

                                    Why do we need a "new" outlook. The current version works well, is user friendly, and visually bland, and does not overwhelm the eye. The "New" version has thumbnails everywhere which is distracting and makes the screen look over crowded. Not a fan. Not a fan at all. Microsoft, stop fixing what isn't broken!!

                                        • Why does the screen keep blinking.

                                          The screen keeps blinking in and out it is very distracting and makes it difficult to read emails.
