Microsoft began rolling out its new Delve search tool for Office 365 business users on Monday.

Delve, previously code-named "Oslo," shows users information based on what they’re working on and what is trending around them.

The application searches cloud-based emails, meetings, contacts, social networks, and documents to show users what they need to see, according to Business Insider.

Delve uses Microsoft’s Office Graph, which uses machine learning to map relationships between people, content, and activities on email, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, and Yammer.

“Delve displays information that is most relevant for each person based on the work they are doing and the people with whom they are engaging. With Delve, information finds you versus you having to find information,” General Manager of Office 365 Technical Product Management Julia White wrote in a blog post.

The application functions like Flipboard, displaying information in a magazine format that users can flip through, according to Tech Times.

It will be rolled out in phases and included with Office 365 Business subscriptions.

“One advantage of Delve is that it’s a personal tool; granted it works best when other workers are using SharePoint or Yammer, but doesn’t necessarily require a whole company to adopt it for daily use,” Mark Hachman wrote for PC World.

Twitter users offered praise and criticism.
