    Microsoft has been intending to streamline its Outlook apps with the use of a sole client-driven by the web. Microsoft will be allowed to share their experience on various platforms.

    This can be done without dealing with different code bases. It also appears to be part of a bigger initiative in order to revitalize the brand in order to become more agreeable to other platforms.

    Microsoft Eschews Outlook Apps

    Microsoft has decided to let go of the desktop apps of Outlook. They have planned to replace them with a single web-based client, as reported by Windows Central. The new feature will be a part of the ‘One Outlook’ project initiated by Microsoft. This seeks to integrate Outlook despite the differing platform.

    This initiative has been named Project Monarch. It will be replacing the email clients of Microsoft along with the Windows Mail application that is a default in the system.

    Project Monarch is going to be built in a solo codebase for the purpose of simplifying the deployment in all the platforms. According to Windows Central, Microsoft is seeking to provide a single-user experience as well as make it accessible for the customers, consumers, and business.

    As one installs Outlook as a PWA, it will not support the integrations offered by the Monarch. For instance, Monarch is going to include the support required by the offline storage, share targets, and notifications.

    They also want to ensure a comfortable feeling for every platform as it still follows the previous look as well as feel that was received from the website of Outlook. The company is also planning to sunset the app on Win32. Meanwhile, Windows Central informed that the present Calendar and Mail apps are under maintenance.
