Today, we're releasing a new, modern calendar experience for Outlook.com. The Outlook.com calendar has been entirely redesigned with a modern, intuitive interface that puts you in control of your schedule. Our calendar service is faster than ever, helps you focus on the events and appointments and tasks you've added, and lets you take your calendar with you on any device. The new Outlook.com calendar is rolling out now and will be available around the world this week.
Outlook.com left preview a few weeks ago, and as part of that, we shared that we'd start to upgrade the hundreds of millions of people using Hotmail to the new, modern Outlook.com experience. We had done multiple pilots during the preview period and learned a ton. Overall, the upgrade has been going very well - people have upgraded much faster than we had expected. The vast majority of people using our services have had a smooth experience during this time and are enjoying the new Outlook.com experience. That said, we had an issue yesterday and wanted to provide you with a deeper look at what happened.
Outlook.com left preview just a few weeks ago as the world's fastest growing email service. Millions of customers continue to join Outlook.com daily. We have been humbled by some fantastic reviews and today, we wanted to share more about two features that are customer favorites: the ability to share just about anything in a single message using SkyDrive and the ability to keep your address book automatically updated with info from Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. We think these features give you a better experience and embody the way modern email should be designed to meet the needs of modern people.
