Outlook Mail's new colorful contact icons are now rolling out to everyone

A fresh update is headed out to Outlook Mail on Windows 10 PC and Mobile, bringing some colorful UI tweaks to everyone. Previously only available to Windows Insiders, this update adds some new contact icons that brighten up the interface with an extra pop of color.

The new colorful icons pop up with the contact's initials next to any that you don't already have a picture assigned to. If you do have a contact saved with a picture you'll see it instead. It's a pretty minor touch, but the added color jazzes things up a bit.

Again, this tweak is now available for everyone on PC and Mobile with the latest version of the app. If version numbers are of interest, you'll want to make sure you're on version 17.7922.42018.0 of the app. And if you happen to notice anything else that we missed, be sure to give us a shout in the comments.

Thanks to Amandeep S. for the tip!
