Microsoft Updates Its Android App

/ 5 years ago


Today Microsoft announced that they will be updating their Android application with improvements to features like server-side search, improved offline mail storage, colors, vacation replies, and aliases., a key project for Microsoft and the successor of Hotmail, has over 400 million users and  is Microsoft’s mail vision for all mobile platforms. According to Microsoft, 68% of users hit up their digital missives from their mobile device, so having a strong application set matters.

If you are an Outlook,com and Android user, this update will contain at least a few things that you like. You can now sync all your mail to your device, if you want to burn the storage capacity. If you want to be able to find any message you want, but not download the lot, Microsoft has added server-side search to the Android app (we all wonder why that feature was not implemented in the first place).

Microsoft has also added a new color set to the app, and introduced support for aliases, along with vacation replies. Taken altogether, the Android now appears to be a fully functional mail experience. I can’t imagine what using it previously was like. Before, over more than 10,000 ratings, Microsoft accrued a rating on the Play store of under three stars.

For those who think that the color is a minor update, you are picking an argument with Yahoo, who recently rolled out color changes to its Mail experience. Apparently it matters. So for those who would like to download the new app on their device here is a link to the Play Store.
