(Updated) Editor for Outlook iOS

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC294741 · Published Oct 28, 2021 · Last updated Dec 17, 2021

Message Summary

Updated December 16, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

This new feature leverages the technology used in Microsoft Word to surface spelling, grammar and refinement suggestions to users as they compose emails in Outlook on iOS. Users can then tap the marked word/phrase to quickly replace their error with the correction.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 79326.

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 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.
