Microsoft To-Do debuts new look on the web, 'Planned' smart list feature

Microsoft's To-Do apps on mobile aren't the only ones getting some love this week. The company debuted a new look for its web app, sporting a simplified design and a new feature: "Planned" smart lists.

The most notable change is that new design, which eschews some of the design elements found in the other To-Do apps in favor of a more simplified look. Overall, it's quite a bit cleaner, but also blander than its prior iteration. But for an app that's meant to help you focus on your tasks for the day, that's probably not a bad thing.

In addition to the new look, you'll also find a new "Planned" section grouped alongside your "My Day," "Important," and "Tasks" smart lists in the left-hand menu. The new section is meant to give you a quick overview of your upcoming tasks for the next five days, along with a further look at thing coming later down the line.

The new "Planned" section isn't yet available in the other To-Do apps, but it's likely not far off.

To check out all of what's new, you can head to To-Do on the web. Today's refresh also comes alongside updates to the Android and iOS apps, which bring a much smaller set of features to the table, like faster syncing and UI tweaks.
