Windows Azure AD team launched a preview of new "sign-in" experience across Office 365, Windows Azure and other Microsoft services used by organizations around the world and offer a new consistent sign in experience regardless of the device.

"Whether we're accessing our email, collaborating on SharePoint or managing our services on Azure, it usually starts by signing in," the team wrote.

During the preview, "the old sign-in UX is shown by default but you can opt-in to try out the new one. You'll need to visit this page weekly and opt-in from each browser and device where you want to see the new UX. To turn it off, simply visit this page again and click the blue button," Microsoft added.

The new sign in experience automatically adapts to the screen resolution and capabilities of different devices, OSes and browsers. It looks fantastic on recent browsers, tablets and mobile devices. It's optimized for touch and also works great with mouse or keyboard.

"(W)e've made it simpler for users to remain signed in and save time on subsequent sign-ins. Checking "Keep me signed in" will keep you connected until you explicitly sign out, and allow a user tile to be shown on the sign in page on subsequent sign ins. Clicking "forget this account" removes the tile," the team adds.
