With WordPad no longer being updated, Microsoft has decided to retire it from future Windows releases.

Microsoft is rolling out support for Gmail accounts in the new Outlook for Windows. The company says support for other third-party email services, such as Yahoo and iCloud, will be coming in the future. Moreover, it has also announced new features and updates including built-in Microsoft Editor support when writing emails, polls within emails, delay sending emails, and more.

Accessing the New Outlook for Windows

The new Outlook for Windows not only comes with Gmail Support but also enables users also to use Google Calendar and Contacts. Microsoft said that the rollout is being implemented slowly; those who have access will see a “Try the new Outlook” toggle in their classic Outlook for Windows; upon sliding the toggle it will activate the new Outlook experience.

The company has also added package tracking for any package numbers you receive in emails. Outlook will also remind you to reply to important emails and join Skype or Teams meetings directly from the app. The company has also improved the calendar experience by adding support for multiple shared calendars, multiple time zones, and a daily weather view. The calendar experience is also getting a revamp with bolder colors and improved readability.
