Microsoft is releasing a new, modern calendar experience for Outlook.The Outlook.com calendar has been redesigned with a new interface, the calendar service is faster and more focused, and you can now take your calendar with you on any device.
You can connect your Microsoft account to services like Skype, LinkedIn, and Facebook. Outlook.com uses Exchange ActiveSync to sync your mail, calendar, and address book on your smartphone, tablet, in the new Outlook 2013 and with the Mail, Calendar and People apps on your new PC or tablet running Windows 8. You can also use the Outlook connector to integrate your calendar with previous versions of the Outlook desktop software.
The new Calendar fits naturally into the same family with your inbox, address book and SkyDrive, says Microsoft. The new Outlook.com calendar is rolling out now, and will be available around the world this week at https://calendar.live.com/.
