First, Microsoft added the bill pay alert feature to Outlook.com. If Outlook.com receives a bill in an email, it will appear as a calendar item. These reminders are similar to the travel booking or parcel delivery tracking service of Outlook.com, and the due date of the bill will be automatically added to the calendar event. Outlook.com will also send mail two days before the bill expires.

Microsoft is also improving RSVP and tracking the progress of meeting information on Outlook's calendar. Even if you do not organize a meeting, you will soon be able to see feedback from the minutes so that you can know whether your boss will attend the meeting and if you really need to attend the meeting. Windows and Mac Outlook schedules also have better time zone support. You can now set a travel calendar entry in one time zone to end in another time zone, which is useful for viewing flight information. Windows Outlook supports viewing three time zones, and Mac's Outlook will also let you see an extra time zone.

Microsoft also added the function of email blind transfer. If you reply to an email at BCC, Windows Outlook will remind you if you need to send it confidentially, so that you can avoid inconvenience. iOS and Android versions will also follow this feature quickly.

iOS's Outlook will soon support the synchronization of draft messages. This feature is available on Outlook for Android, Mac, and Windows, and it will follow the iOS version this month.

Microsoft also integrated Office Lens technology into Android's Outlook. It can extract the information on your photos, just like on a professional scanner. However, there is no news about iOS support yet.
