Microsoft Outlook for Android and iOS launched

Microsoft has launched Outlook app for Android and iOS. The move comes from the company after acquiring mobile mobile email start-up Acompli last month.

Outlook will let you manage your work and personal email on your phone and tablet . These new apps will be repackaged versions of the Acompli app and visitors of the app on Android and iOS will be directed to Outlook. The Outlook app separates mail into two tabs — Focused and Other. The important e-mails will be placed in the Focused inbox and everything else in Other. Users can view calendar and suggest a meeting time to a contact by tapping on an available time slot in your schedule right from the emails compose window. It also offers attachment integration that supports OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and iCloud.

There is also a “Schedule Email” feature that temporarily removes e-mails from your inbox and returns at a time of your choosing. You can do it by swiping left. Previously, Microsoft technically had mobile versions of Outlook through its Outlook web app. Currently, Outlook for Android will be in preview for months while the iOS one is already available.
