Focused Inbox and more coming to Gmail users in the Windows 10 Mail & Calendar app

Microsoft is gearing up to give Gmail users a little love in the Windows 10 Mail & Calendar apps. The tech giant announced some new features, including Focused Inbox, are coming to Gmail users, with Windows Insiders getting the first crack.

Microsoft bringing Focused Inbox and more to Gmail users in Windows 10 Mail & Calendar

The feature updates are already things that are available to those with Office 365 and Outlook.com email addresses, but they’ll be a first for Gmail users. Along with Focused Inbox, Gmail users will get access to travel and package tracking, as well as a faster and improved search. From Microsoft:

To power these new features, we’ll ask your permission to sync a copy of your email, calendar and contacts to the Microsoft Cloud. This will allow new features to light up, and changes to update back and forth with Gmail“such as creation, edit or deletion of emails, calendar events and contacts. But your experience in Gmail.com or apps from Google will not change in any way.

Windows Insiders will get a first shot at testing these features, but Microsoft says not all Insiders will see the changes right away. The features will roll out gradually “over the next few weeks,” and you’ll be able to tell when you have access to them when you receive a prompt in the Mail & Calendar apps to update your Gmail account settings.
