A brand new Outlook experience is not far from your imagination as Microsoft plans to launch Spaces. Codenamed “Timestream”, the new platform is currently in development. It is a web-based tool that will help users organize their emails, documents, meeting schedules and more using an intuitive, simple and powerful work environment called Spaces.
Users can gather together in a single workspace all their emails and events from Outlook as well as documents and other relevant data. Outlook Spaces also allows them to add to-do lists and create notes with links and other information.
For future development, Spaces is envisioned to utilize the power of AI to bolster its features especially in allowing AI-assisted capabilities like adding items into a project in Spaces.
