Outlook for Office 365 Feature Update for July 2019

The July feature update of Outlook for Office 365 (Monthly Channel) is now available and it comes with one major change for Outlook.

  • Get email suggestions when you search for a person
    When you type a person’s name in the Search box, the most relevant email messages will be included with your search suggestions.

Word, Excel and PowerPoint also a got a couple of new features. The one that I’m quite happy about and which applies to all 3 applications is;

  • No more bouncing to the browser
    You decide how links to Office documents open: in the browser or in the app.
    Files-> Options-> Advanced-> Open supported hyperlinks to Office files in Office desktop apps

Note: Depending on your installation type, this update can be installed via the Microsoft Store or the Update Now button in Outlook itself and updates Outlook to: Version 1907 (Build 11901.20176).
