Focused Inbox finally coming to Outlook Mail for Windows 10 Mobile Insiders
Better late than never: Focused Inbox is finally arriving on Windows 10 Mobile — for at least some Insiders, that is.
Focused Inbox is a handy feature for the Outlook Mail app that shows you the most important emails sitting in your inbox at a glance. It's especially useful if you receive a lot of junk on a daily basis and want to filter things down to only high-priority items. Notably, the feature has already appeared in Outlook on nearly every platform except Windows 10 Mobile, leaving many of Microsoft's mobile users frustrated. But if you've been holding out for Focused Inbox in Outlook for Windows 10 Mobile, that's all about to change.
As initially spotted by German blog WindowsUnited.de, Focused Inbox (labeled "Relevant" in the sample screenshot) appears to be rolling out to at least some Release Preview users in the Windows Insider program. It doesn't appear to be available for Fast ring yet, but it could also be rolling out for testers in gradual waves.
Focused Inbox rolled out on desktop Windows 10 some time ago, so it's good to see it's gradually starting to appear on Windows 10 Mobile. It's not clear when other rings, or even production users can expect Focused Inbox to arrive, but it seems it might not be too much longer now that it's in testing.
