In this day and age, there is a good chance that many of us own multiple email accounts. There could be an email account for work, one for personal, one for business, and so on. It also means that we don’t necessarily use the same email providers for all our emails, where you might use Gmail for personal, and a custom email address for your work or business.
If you’re trying to look for a way to consolidate all your email accounts, you might be interested to learn that Microsoft is testing out Gmail integration within Outlook. This was spotted by Florian B who shared a screenshot on Twitter where it appears that Outlook users can add a Gmail account to the platform.
What this means is that you only need to use Outlook if you want to access both your Outlook emails and Gmail emails, thus saving you the effort from having to juggle multiple email applications and windows. That being said, we should point out that this feature does not appear to be live for everyone just yet.

There are some users who claim that they are unable to add a Gmail account to Outlook at the moment. We’re not sure if this is some kind of test or if Microsoft is rolling out the feature in stages, so if you don’t see it now, maybe it will arrive for you later.
