Microsoft released the August feature update of Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps in the Current Channel.
This month’s update isn’t that exciting for Outlook unless you are using a 3rd party meeting tool. There are 4 highlighted fixes that apply to Outlook, although I’d consider the aforementioned fix a new feature.
- Every Meeting Online option for third party meeting applications
This change enables the Every Meeting Online option for third party meeting applications. Supported are; Zoom for Outlook, Cisco WebEx Scheduler, BlueJeans Meetings, GoTo for Outlook, Google Meet, and JioMeet for Outlook.
- We fixed an issue where Outlook can sometimes close unexpectedly when right-clicking on an app in the new app bar.
- We fixed an issue that caused users to be unable to load linked images when replying to or forwarding a message.
- We fixed an issue where Outlook couldn’t open a message that was sent using Outlook on the web and contained a comment that was copied from Word.
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 2208 (Build 15601.20088).
