M365 Changelog: Cortana Briefing Email support for Spanish

MC224405 – To ensure the best experience we have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

The Briefing email from Cortana helps users start their day on track by surfacing information on upcoming meetings and outstanding tasks as well as protecting time for independent work. Currently, the Briefing email is available for Microsoft 365 Enterprise users with Exchange Online mailboxes in English. We are expanding to support Spanish for users who have an Exchange Online license.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 68695

When this will happen

  • Rolling out in early December (previously mid-November) and expect to be complete by the end of February (previously December).

How this will affect your organization:

Once this change has rolled out, the Briefing email from Cortana will be supported in Spanish. We will add support for additional languages in the next few quarters.

The Briefing email is a personalized brief in Outlook with important information on upcoming meetings and outstanding tasks, so you’re prepared for the day ahead. If there is an actionable suggestion, users will receive the Briefing email at the beginning of each workday; at least one actionable insight must be detected for there to be a daily mail.

This feature is enabled by default.

  • Exchange Service Administrators or Company Administrators can disable this feature using PowerShell.
  • Your users can opt-out of the Briefing email by selecting Unsubscribe, located near the bottom of all Briefing emails.

The customized email is only available to an end user; no administrator or manager can see another individual’s Briefing email. All data is stored inside the user’s mailbox. Briefing email is subject to the same GDPR compliance terms as Office 365.

What you need to do to prepare:

Review and assess the impact for your organization. Additionally, you might consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate. Learn more about Cortana Briefing email and how Microsoft protects your privacy.
