Outlook 2016 Vs 2013 – New And Improved

Outlook 2016 is improved to support the deeper search for things, ensures good support of files to the cloud, and even for those with brighter monitors, it gives a dark theme.

New Color and Search Option:

Outlook has become colorful, keeps the ‘White’ theme as it but, the ‘Grey’ color has become much darker. You won’t see the icon of Outlook on the corner anymore and users can set the first icon to be seen according to their need from the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar).

The interesting is the search feature “Tell me what you want to do”. With this, the search is at your fingertip. It helps to search in a much better way and fast, you can type whatever as you wish and will get the refined list.

However, you will not find such a search option on Outlook 2013, where the search will be done on the whole Outlook at once. In Outlook 2013, you will have to search separately.

Recent Attachments:

With 2016, users can save their time easily. It allows attaching the recent documents on which you have been working. When you want to attach a file to the email, the ‘Attach file’ tab will list the recent files, if the file is present in the list, you can directly attach it.

You will get this feature only with the 2016 version. In Outlook 2013, users have to search the file in order to attach them even if the file is recently written.  

Support Office 365 Groups:

Outlook 2016 gives you the support for making the Office 365 Groups. Users can create groups, join, etc. from your desktop Outlook itself if it is 2016. Earlier, this would have been only successful with Outlook Web App. Sadly; you won’t find such a feature with Outlook 2013. 2013 doesn’t render support to Office 365, in other words to the cloud.

Clutter for Keeping Priority:

Ignore fewer priority messages using the Clutter feature. This enables the users to shift the low-priority emails from the Inbox by scanning the past behavior of the user. It checks the messages that you ignore the most and then, it automatically does the work. Mails will be moved to the Clutter folder, if needed users can view them later. Apart from automatic working, users also get the preference to move the message in and/or out.

However, the ‘Move’ option in Outlook 2013 doesn’t come with the support of the ‘Move to Clutter’ option. Users can have the Clutter option only in Outlook 2016.

Other Improved Features

  • 2016 is supported with multi-factor authentication
