Microsoft could launch its new One Outlook app as early as spring

Outlook is currently available in various versions, and Microsoft is looking to consolidate them into the aptly named One Outlook. Previously referred to as Project Monarch, the app includes not only an email component, but also a calendar.

Originally due for release last year, it is now looking as though One Outlook is going to be available for limited testing some time in the spring. Wider scale beta testing is expected to start in the summer, but the timetable remains flexible.

The latest news about One Outlook comes courtesy of Mary-Jo Foley whose sources says that the multi-platform app will not be entirely dissimilar to the current online version of Outlook. Microsoft has already been testing the app internally, but the word on the street is that an official announcement about the future of One Outlook can be expected in the spring.

As usual, it is Windows Insiders who will get the first chance to try the app, with those signed up for the Dev and Beta channels rumored to be able to get their hands on One Outlook in March or April. Progress through the Insider channels is usually fairly slow, so it won't be until July or August that people signed up for the slower channels will get to try it out.

The first major update for Windows 11 is expected to land in October alongside the next feature update for Windows 10, and this is when we're likely to see One Outlook launching for everyone
