Outlook for Android no longer in preview, gets performance and stability improvements

Microsoft has rolled out a new update to Outlook for Android, dropping the “preview” from the name. On top of that, Microsoft has published a new blog post highlighting all the new features in Outlook for Android.

For example, Outlook for Android features an improved look and feel, IMAP support, revised People section, directory search, three-day view in Calendar, customized swipe gestures, the ability to choose and change your default folders for the Archive, permanently delete items from your deleted items folder, and much more. Most, if not all of these features were requested from users. 

“We’ve continued to polish the look and feel of the app. We updated our icon sets and simplified our fonts to provide a more consistent Outlook experience across operating systems and devices. But it was also important for Outlook to feel like a natural part of Android. We use common Android design principles like the Navigation Drawer to house the multiple tools offered in the app and have common actions like settings available in the App Overflow menu,” Microsoft explains.

Outlook for Android is available in Google Play for devices running Android 4.0 and higher. The app was just updated to 1.1.9, adding performance and stability improvements. Grab the app from the download link below.
