So Long Hotmail, Hello Outlook.com

Microsoft’s new Outlook.com is live, and  all Hotmail accounts were instantly changed over to Outlook.com accounts. They’re calling it “upgraded,” saying that Outlook.com will deliver “a beautiful, fresh and intuitive experience.” I’m not sure exactly what that means either.  But below, you can check out the new design.



If you’ve used Outlook on your office or home computer, the design should look somewhat familiar.



The changeover will be seamless for Hotmail customers. Their e-mail address, password and contacts will stay the same.

Microsoft promises that the new program will make it easy to send multiple photos and videos in a single message The new address book allows you incorporate your social media accounts into the contacts list. There are options to add Facebook, Twiter, LinkedIn, flickr, Google and Sina Weibo accounts. 



The service is also integrated with Skype and allows Microsoft Office users to see and edit Office documents without leaving Outlook.  You can check it out at Outlook.com.
