Microsoft Redesigns Outlook App for Android and iOS

Posted by at 9:54 am on July 13, 2017

Microsoft has released an overhauled build of its Outlook mobile email application for both the Android and iOS platforms.

The update targets several specific functions of the app to smooth over performance. The new app makes it much simpler to switch between email accounts or folders within email accounts due to the redesigned nav bar.

The help and settings tools are surfaced higher up within the app so they can be reached more easily.

Microsoft done work when it come tothreaded conversations. The app now shows more of the conversation at once, with clearer borders between messages. Outlook will automatically open the first unread message in a thread, while still allowing people to open other messages in the conversation. Replying to everyone in a thread should be easier, too, thanks to a quick reply function built into the app.

Microsoft also plans to add a universal search bar to Outlook that can be used to find names, addresses, emails, and more.

While the first two features are reaching Android and iOS this week, the search tool will be added at a later date.

Outlook is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
