With all of the work going into Outlook, email marketers are left with one question: What’s next? Here’s what you can look forward to from Microsoft.

Microsoft Outlook 2019: Here’s What’s New

We’re thrilled to announce that Microsoft’s latest desktop version of its popular email client—Outlook 2019—is now available for testing in Litmus Email Previews. The new Outlook comes with better fallbacks when using web fonts, SVG support, and more.

Microsoft Outlook is comprised of several versions of the email client. Collectively, those clients rank #4 in email client market share, with 9% of all email subscribers tracked opening in some version of Outlook. The latest version, Outlook 2019, is an update to the desktop edition that is bundled with Microsoft Office. Although Outlook 2019 is a new release, it should be noted that it largely implements some of the features that have been in use in Office 365 subscriptions.
