Outlook.com is still one of the most popular platforms for web users which is a product of Microsoft. Today, we have found that Microsoft is testing Google’s popular services such as Gmail, Google Drive and Calendar on the Outlook.com. This means Microsoft is all set to bring Google’s these services to Outlook.com.
This is indeed a great move by Microsoft allowing users to integrate with the most popular services from one single platform. It seems like Microsoft is testing out this feature as of now and not made it available for public yet. But the same integration of Gmail, Google Drive and Calendar app is now available on Outlook’s mobile app. Many of the Outlook App’s users have posted regarding this integration on various websites.
The first screenshot or we can say this news regarding the Gmail and other apps’ integration on the Outlook.com’s app was found by a user named Florian B. He has shared a screenshot with some information via his official Twitter handle. You can check out the embedded tweet from below:

This feature is limited to a few users of the app only. If you closely look at the image shared by the user on Twitter, you could easily see how the Gmail and other apps are integrated with each other. Upon launching the Outlook’s website, the first thing you would see is a pop-up message regarding Gmail+ Outlook’s integration. Along with Gmail, the same integration brings Google Drive and Google Calendar’s integration to Outlook.com as well.
At the left sidebar, you would see a new Inbox section from where you can easily access the Inbox of your Gmail account. While using the Outlook.com platform, you can explore the Inbox of Gmail without opening its website separately.
Apart from this integration, some experts have said that Google Drive’s integration will make access to Google Drive and other services more broadly. Users’ would be able to access Google Drive’s files, photos and documents and can attach the files from Google Drive to Outlook’s emails.
It is still not clear whether Microsoft is making this feature widely available or not. We will learn more about the same in the coming days.
