Microsoft launched a preview version of Outlook for Android about three months ago, and now the company is comfortable removing the “preview” label.
Outlook for Android now supports email from providers that use IMAP as well as from Exchange servers, Outlook.com, Gmail, iCloud, and Yahoo. The latest version of the app also has a few other improvements.
Among other things, you can now:
- Customize gestures so that a swipe can archive, delete, flag, move, schedule, or mark a message as read or unread.
- View your calendar in a 3-day mode in landscape. This is in addition to the existing Agenda and Day views.
- There’s an option for directory search that lets you look up contact details for someone that’s in your company but not in your personal contact list.
- Icons, fonts, and navigation have been tweaked to both feel like Outlook on other devices, but also to function like a native Android app.
Outlook for Android is available for free from the Google Play Store.
