Version 2208 has now also been released to the Semi-Annual Enterprise Channel (Preview) and contains 4 highlighted new features and 37 fixes which have been made available already to the Current release channel too. The new features are;

  • 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
  • One-click writing suggestions
    Apply writing suggestions with a single click. Editor corrects spelling and grammar and gives you ideas for refining your writing.
  • Grammar checking’s got your back
    Outlook marks grammar errors as you type, so you can apply suggestions with a single click.
  • Show multiple mini-months in Calendar To-Do Bar
    This feature allows you to show multiple mini-months both horizontally and vertically in the Calendar To-Do bar.
