Microsoft has released a new update to Outlook.com app for Android devices, with re-designed UI and other features. The App will now have a cleaner and more organized look to it. Moreover, the app is now, more interactive and easier to use. Now the app offers filters for unread and flagged messages.
You can now group your email conversations with conversation threading and mark messages as junk. Also, Outlook.com will come with a separate app for Exchange ActiveSync, which lets you Sync your email with your device Calendar and Contacts. Also, you can now view and sync standard and custom folders, including sub-folders.
Senior Program Manager Lead at Microsoft - Outlook.com Steve Kafka wrote in a blog post "We believe that the best mobile experience is enabled through Exchange ActiveSync--which provides a rich, powerful, network-optimized experience for Windows Phone, iOS and other mobile devices. However, native support for Exchange ActiveSync on Android devices varies significantly and so we build a separate app to ensure as many people as possible can have a great Outlook.com experience across all their devices".
"As you've heard us talk about previously, the overall response to Outlook.com has been very positive. However, our Android app has been behind and so we're excited to take this large step forward. Starting today, you can get the same great Outlook.com look and feel you've come to love on Windows 8 and the web on your Android device".
The app is available for download at Google Play store.
