On Outloook.com, using Edge Dev 78.0.268.3 I'm not offered the option to enable desktop notifications. Here is Edge Dev:

vs Chrome 76.0.3809.132

Click on "view all outlook settings", the notification is in there and it has a Lot more options than just a simple toggle.

But still missing desktop notifications. These are notifications that are handed off to be displayed by the OS via the browser. Here is the missing section in Chrome:

Can you try it in these 2 websites see if you can get all types of notifications offered in them:
https://www.bennish.net/web-notifications.html
https://web-push-book.gauntface.com/demos/notification-examples/

@HotCakeX 

Both sites work, after granting access:

Also worth noting that desktop notifications from Gmail (and a lot of other websites) work well in Edge Dev.

Outlook.com is supposed to give you the same prompt when you toggle Desktop notifications on, however the whole setting is unavailable. I have also tried pre-emptively allowing notifications for Outlook.com via settings, but no dice.

I can only guess that the capabilities being advertised by msedge dev to outlook.com aren't proper?
