User Can't Approve via Email

I have a user that used to be able to approve his Approvals requests directly in his Outlook. Today he's saying that when he goes to approve, it's redirecting him to the app rather than allowing him to approve directly in the email. He's doing this on his laptop, not mobile. I attempted from my desktop and mobile and did not have the same behavior. He prefers to approve directly in the email rather than the app, any ideas?

I agree with @RezaDorrani - In addition, you might have the user try updating the version of Outlook they have installed from Office 365.
