Microsoft releases new Outlook for Mac preview to Office Insider Fast ring

Microsoft has released a new preview of Outlook 2016 for Mac, bringing a range of improvements to the application. The new release, version 15.34 (170404), is available now to those enrolled in the Fast ring of the Office Insider Program.

The latest improvements include:

  • Google accounts: Instead of authenticating within Outlook, you’ll now get redirected to your browser for authentication; released to select Insiders
  • New account setup: If the wrong password is entered for an IMAP account, we no longer prompt twice for email address and password
  • Clicking mailto links or sharing page from browser now properly opens a new email compose window
  • We now perform routine database optimization in the background and show progress when appropriate
  • When copying a calendar event by holding Option plus drag and drop, the event now copies with correct start and end times

This new preview follows last month's general availability of another update to Outlook for Mac, which added support for the Touch Bar on Apple's latest MacBook Pro laptops.

Those interested in joining the Office Insider Fast ring, to get the earliest access to new features before they're generally released, can find out how to do so here.
