Delve is a Flipboard-like app for Office 365 users. It provides users with updates on what colleagues are working on and the ability to search for documents and attachments which matter to users.

The new Delve app is a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) one, though it currently works on Windows 10 for PCs only. The preview works with Office 365 business or school accounts that have Delve enabled by administrators.

Delve uses Microsoft's internally built Office Graph to ascertain relationship between people, content, and activity across Office 365. Microsoft officials have said Delve was the first app that was built to make use of Office Graph information.
