From 5 August 2019, Microsoft are upgrading all Education Office 365 users to the new Outlook Web experience. The rollout to the University could happen at any time after this date and may take several weeks.
Currently, when you log into Outlook Web via https://outlook.office365.com, you have an option in the top right to "Try the new Outlook". Once you are upgraded, this option will disappear, and the new Outlook Web will become your default.
Some of the new features include:
- GIFs and emojis
- Calendar search across multiple calendars
- It’s easier to create and join online meetings
- Sync between tasks in Outlook, Planner and To Do
- ‘Dark mode’ view for when your eyes are tired
