The latest ad for Microsoft's email component, Outlook, features a same-sex couple getting married

"More commercials with gay couples! Things are surely changing," excitingly comments one YouTube user on Microsoft's newest video ad for Outlook.com, which features a lesbian wedding.

The video focuses on the email component's up-to-the-minute updates on your contacts, and features a woman receiving updates about her friends’ lives.

One of the updates involves seeing her friend Sarah Jones update to her married name and change her profile photo to one with her new bride. The friend happily reacts to the update and congratulates the newly weds.

The Outlook ad follows other recent ones featuring gay couples from other LGBT supporting businesses such as Amazon and its Kindle ad, and Crate & Barrel's "Us & Always" catalog feature

Watch the Outlook video below:

Music in the ad comes from LGBT allies and activists, rapper Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Called "Can't Hold Us Down," listen to the catchy track below and watch as they preform it on SNL
