What you need to know
- Outlook icons for mail and calendar have leaked online.
- The new icons are similar to the refreshed icons for other Microsoft apps, including Outlook.
- Icons for both the Windows 10 and Android versions of Outlook have been spotted online.
New icons have leaked online for the calendar and mail sections of Microsoft Outlook. Aggiornamenti Lumia's Twitter account shared the Android icons for Outlook first and later shared the Windows 10 equivalents. The main app icon of Outlook has already been updated on Windows 10 and Android, but these icons would specifically be for the mail and calendar sections of the app. Microsoft refreshed several icons recnetly, including Microsoft Office.
The Windows 10 icons have a different design to the Android counterparts.

The Windows 10 icons have white features such as the letter inside the enveloper for mail. Microsoft's icons generally match across platforms after they receive an update to Fluent Design, so there's a good chance that these aren't final designs.

Neat-o... Let's hope they release it along side the dark mode that they're working on.
I find it funny that in an article about Outlook icons, they are using Outlook's old icon to link to the Google Play store. Not a big deal, but seems kind of odd when they state "The main app icon of Outlook has already been updated on Windows 10 and Android"
The new icons appear if you split the outlook app up in two widgets. One for mail and one for calendar
Yeah...these new icons are all pretty horrible. The ones of the Office Trio were bad, these continue to be awful.
The Android ones are less horrid, but horrid nonetheless. Thank God we can change them both on Windows and Android. Although on Windows that means no further pinning them to the taskbar 'cause for some reason the taskbar doesn't respect icon changes...
Idunno, at first I didn't like them at all (I thought they were too busy) but they've grown on me. These new ones are looking pretty nice to me right now.
If you pin a shortcut with a different icon, the taskbar respects it. I did it with the Microsoft Edge insider preview and works great! Also you're still here DJCBS? I haven't been on the internet for a couple years, just coming back haha
They have much more important things to fix than the icons: render the mails properly.
"The Windows 10 icons have a different design to the Android counterparts." Well that's Microsoft for you, why do one consistent design when you can have several different ones. Either way, the new Mail one looks a lot like the old Gmail Inbox icon.
