Remembering the good old days of Hotmail; It’s one of the first free Web-based email services available and up to now it still has hundreds of millions of users worldwide.
Microsoft launched the preview version of Outlook.com, its new personal, free Web-based email service.
Sooner or later, Microsoft will move all Hotmail users to Outlook.com. Outlook.com is a simplified version of Outlook – a popular email application along with MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint included in MS Office Suit, it will give a clean new design and new features.
Outlook.com new features include the option to connect to Facebook, Twitter and other social networks; the ability to open, edit and share Office documents anywhere via Office Web Apps; and options to easily connect in other ways, such as chat or a status update from a social network. Skype integration is also on its way, having the ability to make Skype video calls directly from your inbox.
Most of the part of Outlook.Com is designed in compatibility with Windows 8, which will launch on Oct. 26. Aside from a keyboard-mouse input, the best part of it: it’s a touch-based web application that fits right in Surface tablets.
So what will happen to Hotmail users?
You can still use your @hotmail.com account and sign in at outlook.com. You don’t have to worry about your contacts and previous emails, you’ll keep them. And, you’ll continue receiving messages sent to your Hotmail address or you can get a new email address from Outlook.
