Microsoft delivered an Outlook.com update with a host of new features and capabilities this week to a small group of end users.

The update is a part of a plan to upgrade Outlook.com to a new infrastructure based on Office 365, Microsoft said in a blog post. The update will be rolled out to more end users through an opt-in program within the coming weeks, the company added.

One of the more familiar features in the update is the inclusion of Clutter, which sorts through end users’ email and decides which messages are important and which messages can go into a separate folder. Other features include search suggestions, the ability to pin and flag email messages, rich link previews and support for third-party add-ins such as Boomerang, PayPal and Uber, Microsoft said.

The update will provide support for collaboration and include support for Skype and OneDrive, Microsoft said. The update also supports changes to Outlook apps for Android, iOS and Windows devices; these changes include swiping, add-in support and mobile-friendly views for contacts and calendars, the company added.
