Microsoft in undergoing a major UI redesign across many of its Outlook clients, including Outlook for Web and New Outlook for Windows. Microsoft's goal is to gather all add-in under one place called Apps. All add-in you have added to Outlook by yourself are now placed in the Apps menu. Add-ins deployed centrally by your administators are automatically pinned to your message surface, as space permits.
