Gmail integration for Outlook in testing

Microsoft is testing a new feature that will allow users to add Google Services to their Outlook accounts, reports The Verge.

This was first revealed by Twitter user Florian B, who was able to access the feature and take screenshots of it.

Once a user’s Google account is linked to their Outlook account, they will be able to view their Gmail emails, Google Drive Documents, and Google Calendar entries from their email client interface.

This feature looks similar to Microsoft Outlook for iOS and Android, as there are separate inboxes and side-by-side calendar integration.

The feature is far from finished, however. According to Florian B, users who can access the test can only add a single Google Account and any attempt to switch between one’s Outlook and Gmail accounts results in the page refreshing.

Microsoft confirmed to Engadget that it is testing the feature on a small group of users.

“We are always looking for new ways to extend the best email experience to our customers and can confirm that we’re experimenting with a small set of users to learn and gather feedback,” said Microsoft.
