Outlook Web App for Android phones announced at Microsoft Exchange Conference

An Outlook Web App for Android phones was announced Monday at the Microsoft Exchange Conference in Austin, Texas, as well as a preview of new features – including an email decluttering tool – coming to the Outlook Web App in Office 365 later this year.

“These new capabilities will help redefine the email experience as we know it today making it more social, more relevant, more collaborative and easier to manage,” writes Jeff Teper, corporate vice president of Office Service and Servers group.

The changes reflect the cloud-first, mobile-first approach of technology, as outlined last week by CEO Satya Nadella.

At the Austin conference, Teper writes, “We’ll show how email triage and search will become truly intelligent with the Office Graph, and unveil awesome support for collaborating on attachments and shared docs in email. In all of this, giving customers the best mobile experience across all devices is critical … Our phone users will have great built-in support for Exchange via the default email app on all phones – plus they can also use the OWA app on iPhone, iPad and now Android phones to get the latest features.”
