With the new Outlook for Mac, we have reimagined the experience that you know and love, bringing even more power and simplicity to the product. 

New Outlook has many more features that are not in legacy Outlook for e.g., a fully customizable toolbar, swipe gestures, hover actions, theming, display density, search with natural language, meetings to be always Teams meeting, integrated My Day, advanced Microsoft Information Protection, text prediction, advanced dictation, retention and much more.

We are always actively listening for your feedback and making updates and changes to our feature roadmap based on what you tell us. If you have feedback on what we should consider adding to new Outlook, please use the in-app Help > Give Feedback link.
