A new update in the message center:
The format of alert mails sent from SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business have been updated to present information in a clearer way and to better display content on phones. We originally communicated that we started rolling this out in February, but the rollout took longer than expected.
How does this affect me?
This feature is now completely rolled out and existing alerts are now using the new format.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change.
I did notice a change lately in the look & feel of the alerts:

Nice update indeed but we used the URL to specific files from these older emails to get directly to the file it corresponds with, and multiline text fields are badly readable in the new style.
Any idea if this is going to be add/fixed in the feature?
Right now we see some tenants with old and new emails together in one tenant on one sitecollection which seems weird also.
