Office 365 subscribers will now have access to premium features on Outlook.com. Microsoft has announced the premium features, which include ad-free inbox and larger mailbox sizes, are now rolling out to subscribers, with more features to be added in the future.
The biggest change most will notice is the elimination of ads on Outlook.com for Office 365 Home and Personal subscribers. Additionally, Home and Personal subscribers will also get access to some extra malware protection in the form of more robust attachment scanning and link checking. From Microsoft:
- Scanning attachments—Sophisticated techniques detect new types of malware previously not seen, giving you protection against today's most advanced threats.
- Checking links—When you click a link in an email, it is checked in real-time to determine if the destination website is likely to download viruses or malware onto your computer. If the site is found to be malicious, a warning screen alerts you not to access the site.
Finally, Office 365 Home and Personal subscribers will also now have a larger mailbox storage size of 50GB, compared to the 15GB offered to a standard free account. Microsoft says it is also boosting storage limits to 50GB for its "loyal Outlook.com users whose mailbox size is 12GB or larger." Premium technical support is also now included with Office 365 subscriptions.
Premium Outlook.com features are currently in the process of rolling out to Office 365 Personal and Home subscribers worldwide. According to Microsoft, the process could take up to a month to complete, so you may not see the new features right away.
