M365 Changelog: Outlook: Update to Play My Emails

MC692461 – Play My Emails is a feature in Outlook Mobile that allows users to listen to new messages in their Focused Inbox and changes to their day hands-free through a voice-driven experience. 

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out the update in early December and expect to complete by early January 2024. 

How this will affect your organization:

After this update, Play My Emails will no longer attempt to prioritize which messages are read out first. Messages will be read out solely based on chronological order. 

What you need to do to prepare:

You may want to notify your users about this change and update any relevant documentation as appropriate.
