Microsoft has released a major update to Outlook for Android and iOS, with new conversation and navigation experiences.
“Microsoft has some exciting updates to Outlook on iOS and Android this morning with all new conversation and navigation experiences,” a Microsoft representative told me. “Improvements to scroll and reply functions now allow for more effortless communication, and updates to navigational functions make switching between accounts and folders a breeze. Also announced were forthcoming redesigns to Outlook’s search experience.”
Here’s what’s new.
In addition to these changes, Microsoft is also discussing some future changes to the Outlook app for Android and iOS. The firm intends to revamp search and make it front and center in a new, simplified menu bar. It will also integrate people and files into search and display suggestions as you type.
“The new accounts navigation and conversations experiences are available starting today in Outlook for iOS with Outlook.com and Gmail accounts,” Microsoft says. “Support for Office 365 accounts will be rolling out in the coming days. The new search experience is coming soon to Outlook for iOS. We’re working hard right now to bring all three of these new experiences to Outlook for Android over the next couple of months.”
