Microsoft rolled out a major upgrade for Outlook.com around two years back. The new and improved email service brought several new features and improvements. Microsoft said at that time that it was going to migrate all of the users who rely on its email service to the new experience. The new Outlook.com remained in preview for about nine months after which it made its exit from preview in February last year. Microsoft now says that it has migrated 99.9% of all users to the new experience.
The new Outlook.com came out of preview in February 2016 and Microsoft announced a couple of months later in April that it had migrated more than 400 million user accounts to the new experience.
At that point, the company said that it expected to complete the move for the majority of users “by the end of summer.” It reiterated this target in July last year. However, it appears that the effort took a bit longer than that. Microsoft is now finally saying that the migration is almost complete.
In a statement provided to ZDNet, Microsoft said that “The Outlook.com migration is nearly complete. Microsoft has migrated over 99.9 percent of active customers and are in the final stages of migrating the remaining customers.”
Those who are still left should expect to be moved over to the new Outlook.com experience in the very near future.
