Microsoft has announced that their Outlook.com webmail service is now out of preview.
Outlook.com would replace Hotmail later this year. The service already has around 60 million registered users.
The new web interface is optimized for touchscreen displays and is heavily inspired by the Metro user interface which is part of Windows 8 and Windows RT operating systems.
We want to thank the more than 60 million of you that are already using Outlook.com actively. We sincerely appreciate the feedback you’ve been sending us and the valuable role you’ve played in making today’s news happen. Of course there’s always a lot more to come, but for those of you that have been waiting to give it a try, now is your chance. Outlook.com is out of preview and it’s a great time to upgrade. We look forward to hearing what you think.
