Outlook web version to get Likes and @Mentions

When you start sharing, you must save your document to the cloud on Microsoft’s OneDrive and then invite other people. As well as this, Office 365 Groups are available as part of Outlook 2016 and through an app available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Would you find them useful for your work emails? We expect the feature to roll out broadly to eligible Office 365 commercial customers starting in late October. The new Exchange also includes stability and performance enhancements from Office 365.

Redmond noted that Exchange Server 2016’s differences from its preceding product will become more apparent with the release of SharePoint Server 2016 and Office Online Server.

As though the Office 365 version of Outlook was not feature-packed enough, but it is a good thing that Microsoft has not stopped themselves from rolling out even more new features to this particular service. If you sign up to Office 365 which is for one year, you have to pay €69 (5096) for one user which includes new Office 2016 apps both for PC and Mac as well as installation on your personal tablet and Smartphone.

These new features should help to make the package run efficiently on an Apple operating system, allowing fresh new possibilities for users that could lead to better performance and commercial success.

Redmond noted that Microsoft also omitted an “auto-expanding archive mailboxes” feature from this Exchange Server 2016 release. The Outlook 2016 provides the smartest inbox yet, with lightning-fast searchand automatic removal of low-priority mail.

Outlook.com users will also be getting the mentions feature towards the end of the year but there is no word on whether the like button will be launched for the free email service.

The multifactor authentication ensures secured access to content anywhere when users are away from the corporate network. But it has been improved with subtle interface updates and a new Clutter feature for cleaning out messy inboxes.

“The way people work has changed dramatically, and that’s why Microsoft is focused on reinventing productivity and business processes for the mobile-first, cloud-first world”, Satya Nadella, chief executive officer (CEO) of Microsoft, said in a statement.

“These latest innovations take another big step forward in transforming Office from a familiar set of individual productivity apps to a connected set of apps and services designed for modern working, collaboration and teamwork”.
