No more ads, but it will be possible to avoid them with the Focused box

BET À DAY

The Outlook mobile app gives users two options for organizing their inbox: a single inbox with everything in it, or a tabbed inbox split into two categories – “Focused ” with important mail and “Other” with everything else. 

Previously, Microsoft placed ads in the “Other” tab only for free users, but it now adds to single inbox mode, too.

For Outlook mobile “free” users, it will be more difficult to avoid ads at the top of the normal inbox. And with both Focused and Other inbox types, there will only be ads at the top of the Other tab.

Messaging in Focused inbox.

These advertisements will look like normal emails – a way to get users curious. And even if you delete them, they will reappear. If you open one, the advertising content will be displayed in a mini browser.

At least for free users, they can avoid ads by activating the Focused Inbox feature.

And to avoid all advertisements in your Outlook mobile email, you will need to have a subscription to Microsoft  365.
