Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps Feature Update for July 2022

With a delay of a few days, Microsoft released the July feature update of Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps in the Current Channel.

It comes with 2 new features for Outlook and 3 highlighted fixes.

  • Use suggested replies in Outlook
    When you receive an email message that can be answered by a short response, Outlook can suggest three responses you can use to reply with just a couple of clicks.
    • Suggested Replies can be turned off via; File-> Options-> Mail-> section: Replies and Forwards-> toggle option: Show suggested replies
  • Dictation toolbar redesigned for efficiency, cleaner look
    The Office dictation toolbar has been redesigned, featuring new visuals, a more responsive user interface, and a smaller size to stay out of the way of what matters—your content!
  • We fixed an issue that caused users to see the Journal module in their left rail navigation bar.
  • We fixed an issue that caused Exchange 2019 users to see Outlook to fail to display the reply indicator icon on messages in search results.
  • We fixed an issue where an Outlook message would flash with a white background while zooming in or out.

Note: Depending on your installation type, this update can be installed via the Update Now button in Outlook or the Microsoft Store and updates Outlook to: Version 2207 (Build 15427.20194).
