When will you get this Update?
Over the next few weeks, the Outlook.com team will roll out to all users a new toggle for opting into the beta. Those who don’t like the new look and feel can easily switch back to the old version.
If you’re eligible for the beta, you will see a toggle at the top right of the website that says “try the beta.” Switching that on will bring you to the new beta experience. If you don’t see the toggle, don’t worry, you will get it within a few days.
First launched in 2012, the plan here is to test new features in this beta program. And bring to the standard version of Outlook.com those that worked out well. According to the Outlook team, the best and most appreciated design concepts will make the new look of Outlook.com.
