It appears that Microsoft has made its Outlook Web App available to select Android devices, having it be a prerelease version and bearing same features as the iOS counterpart.
Microsoft has stated that the application is currently limited to users having an Office 365 business accounts. It is currently available for Android devices running on KitKat 4.4 or higher, having a small or normal-sized screen.
The supported devices have been said to include the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S5, Nexus 5, Moto X, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony Xperia Z1 and Sony Xperia ZL. Microsoft has also stated that it will expand the device support in the near future, having said that it will be adding more devices regularly. Also, users themselves can request new device support and features on the suggestion page over at Microsoft’s Outlook web App for Devices.
The company has made the pre-release version available in order to fix bugs and ensure the app will be ready for a full-scale release later on. Also, in addition to the features found on the iOS version, the Android counterpart will also automatically synch changes to the handset’s contacts as well as the Outlook 365 contact list. What this means is by changing a contact’s number for example, the changes will also be reflected in the Outlook 365 contact list.
