After making Office available to iOS and Android users, Microsoft is now offering their Outlook email service as a mobile device app. Outlook is designed to bring email, calendars, contacts and documents together in one easy-to-navigate app.
This saves users time and hassle – to access Outlook accounts on devices before this, users had to rely on multiple other applications. Android users had Outlook.com or the OWA app – which required an Office 365 subscription. iOS users had the standard Mail app and also used OWA. Now, they can access their Outlook accounts in one easy place.
The new app has built in calendars, contact lists, a documents tab, and can be synced with other accounts like Dropbox, Yahoo and Gmail. Additionally, you can view your most important emails from any account in one place – or choose to keep them stored separately. Swipe gestures allow you to archive important emails or even schedule less crucial ones for later.
The outlook app provides several features built to streamline work and make business interactions easier.
Microsoft’s Outlook app is available now for Apple devices and will be rolled out soon for Androids, though a preview is currently available in the Google Play Store.
