Microsoft is Developing Outlook Web App for Android

Microsoft has announced they’re working on a proper Outlook Web App (OWA) for Android. Via a blog post announcing several other feautures, Microsoft suggests the new app with similar design to their Outlook web app.

It’s a nice option for those who want similar functionality to their desktop, and likely a seamless experience for those who use the web app.This is the right direction as what the company previously confirmed that they will continue support for all operating system platforms. Previously, Microsoft has released the Outlook app for iOS users.

It’s the first move toward Android for Microsoft since their new CEO took over, and one that’s welcomed by many users. Though Microsoft wasn’t forthcoming with details on what an Android app would bring to the table, we hope it’s as nicely put together as the iOS app. The Apple-y version allows for all things Outlook, like calendar and notes.

If Microsoft builds a well-tuned OWA for Android, the company can expect more users to toward their service. This also has important, necessary enterprise implications, as many companies still use Microsoft solutions to power their offices.

Before Outlook application for Android launches, you can use some alternatives like CloudMagic.
