The web version of Outlook will soon let you manage your Gmail, Google Drive, and Calendar from a single place.

Microsoft is bringing Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive to is web version of Outlook, and the company is now rolling out a preview of the integration with a limit number of users (via Twitter user Florian B).

The setup process is easy enough. You only need to link your Google Account to your Outlook.com account, and after you authenticate, the Google services, including Gmail, Calendar, and Drive will be accessible from the web version of Outlook.

If you ever used the Outlook app on your phone, the experience will look very familiar, as you’ll get a separate inbox, and you’ll be able to interact with your calendar.

In addition, you can also access your Google Drive, which means that you can attach document and other files directly into an Outlook or Gmail email.

At the time of this writing, only a few users have it, and it’s not possible to add more than one Google account. Also, it’s not yet clear when the features will roll out more broadly, or if it’s something that only premium users will be able to use.
