Microsoft Is Actually Thinking of Bringing Ads to Windows 10 Mail App

The windows 10 Mail app could soon receive an update that many people are going to despise: ads right in the main UI, just above the latest emails in the inbox.

As weird and unacceptable that may sound, it looks like Microsoft is currently testing such a change for the Mail app, with some users, most likely insiders, seeing ads in their inboxes.

By the looks of things, this isn’t a feature that users can simply opt out. Instead, it’s an ad bundled into the app that nobody can rid off, obviously not without giving up on the app entirely.

Which, to be completely honest, begins to sound like a pretty good idea for many people, considering how unusual it is for an app developed by Microsoft for an operating system developed by Microsoft to come with built-in ads.

Experimental feature, hopefully

For the time being, however, this may be just an experimental change and it’s not known if Microsoft plans to release it to all Windows 10 users. But if it does, there’s no doubt that the Mail app user base shrinks dramatically, as there are so many email clients out there that are available free of charge and do not feature ads.

At the same time, this also raises questions as to Microsoft’s approach towards Windows 10 apps. This isn’t the first controversial change that the company is planning for the Mail app, after it previously announced that users would be forced to open links in Microsoft Edge and not in their third-party browsers set as default.

In the meantime, this “update” was abandoned and third-party browsers will still be used, though the simple fact that Microsoft thinks that such an update is a good idea is worrying for some.

It remains to be seen if ads make it to the Mail app, but the second it happens, you can be sure that many, if not everyone, abandons it once and for all.
