Not long ago we released an opt-in toggle for users to be able to try the new experience of Outlook in a mobile browser, while we are working to make this experience better we wanted to give you a heads-up of the features that are coming, and some that won’t be there anymore.

So you’re removing the voting buttons for approval assistant for the ONLY place you can handle approvals on mobile. Great, thanks a ton!

In the new version of Outlook Mobile in the Widgets section there should be a People shortcut with a new Fluent Design icon just like Calendar and Mail so we don't have to use the Google Contacts app. This would provide a consistent interface with a modern interface to all the other Microsoft Mobile apps and the new version of Launcher currently in beta.

@Gabriel Valdez Malpartida   could a member of your team please update your uservoice page for Outlook on the web?  https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/313228-outlook-on-the-web-office-365/filters/top  It appears that Microsoft hasn't updated the items that are in the status of "working on it" for over a year.  It would also be much appreciated if Microsoft could give some comment on the top requested items.  Thank you!
