    New Office 365 App Launcher

    We are introducing a number of changes to Office 365 in the web to simplify and personalize the user experiences for you and your users.

    The new Office 365 app launcher will be rolling out over the next couple months. Here's an early look on how it'll work so you can prepare the people in your organization for the change. The new app launcher is personalized and will help users open and switch between the apps they use most. The apps users see are still based on the licenses their admin has assigned. However, the redesigned main view now emphasizes the most used applications across Office 365. It also highlights additional apps relevant to your users. For example, teachers and students may see education-specific apps.

    The video below will also show how is an easy to remember URL to share with your users to help them get started with all things Office 365 and specifically, working with their online documents. We are also introducing a new Office 365 gallery page, accessible from, that will help users better understand the apps, tools and services that are part of their Office 365 subscription.

    Frequently asked questions

    Here's a list of some frequently asked questions. Don't see your question answered here? Leave us your question at the bottom of this page: Was this information helpful?

    Can I pin admin custom tiles to the main view of the launcher for my organization?

    • Admins will continue to have the ability to add custom tiles to share line-of-business (LOB) apps, sites, and URLs with their organization. However, they will only show in the main view if pinned by an end-user.
    • The All view is optimized for search and there's a new grouping at the top of this view called Admin selected apps for admin custom tiles so that users can easily discover them.

    Will all my users see the same apps they do today?

    With the new app launcher, a user's main view will include a default set of apps, plus any apps the user opened in the previous 45 days. From the All view, users can also easily pin any app, including admin custom tiles, to the main view of their launcher.

    What happened to the Mail, Calendar, People and Tasks tiles?

    Access to all Outlook modules is now consolidated in the main view of the app launcher with a single tile called "Outlook" that opens Mail. People, Calendar and Tasks can be accessed via the switcher in the lower left of the Outlook app, just like on the desktop. Direct access is also available via individual Calendar, People and Tasks tiles in the ALL apps view, and can be pinned to the main view of the app launcher like other apps. Additionally, if a user has clicked on Calendar, People or Tasks directly in the previous 45 days, we will automatically pin it to their main view.

    Will my users' apps highighted in the main view keep changing based on their use?

    After your users see the new launcher for the first time, apps in the main view will stay the same, unless a user chooses to customize their apps or an administrator adds or removes licenses. If you have difficulty finding an app, click All your apps and search or look through the alphabetized list of apps available.

    Do apps open the same as they do today?

    The apps in the launcher will open in different tabs, so a user should not expect the browser Back button to always take them where they were.

    How can I get an early look at the app launcher?
