Microsoft is giving away one of its flagship software applications to Mac users. Outlook for Mac is now free to download and use through the Mac App Store. Previously, a Microsoft 365 subscription or license was required to use the email client.
Users can connect almost any email account to Outlook. Microsoft makes it easy to sync your account in popular email services like Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo, and Outlook.com with the software. Also, Outlook is much more than an email client. The software comes with a robust calendar tool to help you manage your time and inbox.
Another great benefit of the new free version of Outlook for Mac is that it is designed and optimized to work with macOS. This goes far beyond just matching the aesthetics of Mac. Outlook harnesses the power of Apple Silicon for faster performance and sync speeds.
The new Handoff feature makes it easier to take your email on the go. You can start composing a reply to an important email in your desktop client in the last few minutes at the office, then complete the draft and send it from your iPhone on the train ride home from the office.
Plus, Outlook for Mac captures the utility of Apple’s Focus feature, which means you can schedule personal emails so they don’t notify you when you’re supposed to be working. And the Focused Inbox feature keeps your most important email front and center to ensure nothing gets lost during your work day.
Outlook for Mac is now available for free on the Mac App Store.
