I guess when Micorsoft says Outlook.com they use that as an umbrella for both public and business versions. 

 

I like it, though no support for Tenant themes currently.

This is still not on our tenants even if all are on First Release but I'm hoping one of these days we can have Beta version as well.

I also reviewed it.
However, it does not mean that Outlook.com applies only to the Public version.

Seeing this too. Like others totally assumed this was the consumer product. Very poor comms here from Microsoft.
And with that dirty big search bar in the Top Bar I don't think it will ever support the Tenant theme, other than colours maybe

@Dylan Snodgrass posted about it here, thought it still didn't sound like it applied to O365, other than it being tagged with "Outlook on the web"

Ah thank you for the reminder - I totally forgot about this feature.
