Wouldn't it be nice if you could stay in Microsoft Teams even when working with your emails? Microsoft Teams is getting even more mature by providing an App for integrating Outlook into the Microsoft Teams client.

At least it seems that this is the case. or was it?

 

The Outlook App (Preview)

Last week a new App, still in preview, showed up in the Teams Admin Center (TAC) of some demo tenants. I filtered the list of available apps using Outlook as a search term.

When selecting the app, the details showed that the app was still in preview (v0.41).

Outlook App Details

 

As long as the app is enabled within Teams, you can add the app to a Teams Setup Policy and make it available for users.

Your users can then access the Outlook App using the Teams app bar.

You can simply click on Outlook in the app bar and, voilá, you have your Outlook inbox in Microsoft Teams. Due to the architecture of Microsoft Teams, you have access to your Outlook on the Web version of your inbox.
