MC294741: Microsoft Editor for Outlook iOS

When will this happen

  • iOS – begin rolling out in early November and expect the rollout to be completed by mid-January
  • Android – begin rolling out in early November and expect the rollout to be completed by late June (previously mid-February)

How this will affect your organization

Users will start seeing underlines when composing email messages in Outlook on iOS that will reflect spelling, grammar and refinement errors. They can then tap on these underlined words or phrases to see suggested edits, or they can select Ignore to remove the underline without editing. Users can always disable Microsoft Editor by going to Settings > Account > Editor. This will turn off Microsoft Editor and will revert the user back to their system spellchecker.

What you need to do to prepare

There is no action you need to take to prepare for this change, but you might consider updating your user documentation and alerting your help desk.
