Introducing Office 365 Groups in Outlook 2016


In my earlier blog post I mentioned about lot of new features that I liked including Groups in Outlook 2016 and a new mobile app called Outlook Groups which you can download. With the new Outlook Groups mobile app for Windows Phone, iOS and Android, you can now engage with your group on your phone while on the go—continue conversations, view files, @mention colleagues and even discover other relevant groups etc. Below is the sample snapshot how it will looks like.

Introducing availability of Office 365 Groups in Outlook 2016

These new capabilities offer a better way to get work done with others and offer a number of benefits compared to traditional distribution lists. In Outlook 2016, creating a group is easy and new colleagues can also join existing groups and quickly get up to speed.
