Microsoft has recently released Outlook.com in place of the Hotmail webmail facility. Metro UI is being used quite prettily by the Outlook.com. The Microsoft got a quick response from the users as millions of users signed up in just few hours. The Outlook is also providing users the services through which they can switch from their hotmail address to @outlook.com address easily.
When you open the website you can see how clean it is, with few options on the right hand side of Inbox, Draft, Junk, etc. If you switch from hotmail, the contact section will mention all of your added contacts of Hotmail, but you can add more contacts from Facebook, Twitter, Google and Linkedln. The new version has also been updated for the mobile phone, which you can easily get from your Android or iOS. There is a messenger service too, which not just help you to send messages but also let you to chat with people on your facebook.
