Office brings Focused Inbox to all versions of Outlook – Clutter folder to be retired


If you’re on Android or iOS, you may have noticed that Outlook has a neat feature, named “Focused Inbox”. I find it to be very handy, and now it’s coming to all versions of Outlook, including desktop and web. Here’s the word from the Office team:

Focused Inbox was first released on Outlook for iOS and Android. All versions of Outlook that receive updates will soon become Focused Inbox capable, including Outlook 2016 for Windows and Mac as well as Outlook on the web and Windows 10. Users will begin seeing the feature turn on once their Office 365 or Outlook.com mailbox is enabled for Focused Inbox. Mailboxes on the new Outlook.com will begin becoming Focused Inbox enabled this week, and will continue over the coming months. Office 365 users in the First Release program will become Focused Inbox enabled in early September. Regular Office 365 mailboxes will follow after First Release availability.

    So what happens to those users still on Outlook 2013? It has a clutter folder.

  2. Katie says:

    “All versions” – does that mean Outlook desktop 2016, various mobile apps, and OWA? What about Outlook desktop 2013? Is that on the same or different timeline than Outlook desktop 2016, for an O365 subscription?
