Leaked Windows 10 Build Reveals Mail and Calendar Apps
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Leakers seem to always be one step ahead, even if Microsoft provides regular updates to its Windows 10 Technical Preview. The latest Windows 10 leaked build (10051) seems to include some new updates, but the most important one is that the build comes with the latest Calendar and Mail apps.
The apps are said to be very basic at this stage, but they are functional at least. Users will notice that they feel and look better than the ones found on Windows 8.1, having Microsoft adding its swipe features that are currently available on iOS and Android clients. Other features include support for multiple accounts and an easy way to add Google or Exchange accounts. The Mail client seems to be branded as plain ‘Mail’ right now, but Microsoft has plans to change its name in the final release to Outlook.
Looking at the Calendar app, users will be excited to know that Microsoft has finally added support for Google Calendar. The current Windows 8.1 calendar has no such support, but Microsoft seems to be correcting its mistake in its next OS version. Its aesthetics have also changed compared to the current version, having it be more colourful and feel like an actual Office app this time. One strange thing that Microsoft did with this version of Calendar seems to be that it did not integrate it with the Mail app, meaning that your synched calendars are separate to your email accounts.
