We're excited to announce a major upgrade for our Outlook.com app for Android devices that overhauls the entire user interface and provides a number of new features. You can get the latest app here.
We believe that the best mobile experience is enabled through Exchange ActiveSync--which provides a rich, powerful, network-optimized experience for Windows Phone, iOS and other mobile devices. However, native support for Exchange ActiveSync on Android devices varies significantly and so we build a separate app to ensure as many people as possible can have a great Outlook.com experience across all their devices.
As you've heard us talk about previously, the overall response to Outlook.com has been very positive. However, our Android app has been behind and so we're excited to take this large step forward. Starting today, you can get the same great Outlook.com look and feel you've come to love on Windows 8 and the web on your Android device.
In addition to the great new look, we've added a number of other features including conversation threading, filters for unread and flagged mail, as well as the ability to mark messages as junk. We hope you like all the new changes. Get the update here and let us know what you think.

UPDATE May 23, 2013:
Based on your feedback since this release of the Outlook.com app for Android devices, we've made the following improvements that are now available in the Google Play store:
Wanky HUGE point size - this is just crap.
And no option to return to the old Hotmail app. Shame on you...
@mdonaldson - Unfortunately, this is a known limitation with our app integrating on Android.
Hopefully that will be implemented at some point. In the meantime, I found a workaround, by following the instructions at the link below and only chosing to sync Contacts. Contacts synced using Exchange in this way can be edited on the device, with the changes synced back to outlook.com. See: windows.microsoft.com/.../android-no-app
i have the same issue, so frustrated! have you found a solution?
Still waiting for IMAP, CardDAV, and CalDAV support! Outlook.com is awesome but I need standard interfaces so I can use OS X Calendar, Contacts, and Mail. Please make this happen Microsoft!
Would have been better if it actually upgraded the hotmail app rather than just installed a new separate app. Every time I open the app I have to sign back into all three accounts again !!!! Also please reduce the font size it is way to big(one of the reasons I dont use windows 8 on my PC)
Still waiting for sync Tasks as is via EAS. It's possible? What's about edit contacts? When can we expect this functionality?
@Steve Kafka We still need the following features...
1). Email notification should display the Name and subject for JB 4.1.2 version
2). Widget needs a scroll bar and max the size of the widget
Are these in pipeline ?
I can't see any way to add a second account?
Found how to add a 2nd account - swipe right, a list of folders appears, tap the account name and the folders close to show an 'Add Account' option. Seems a bit convoluted to switch between accounts now
but this update has not been successful. Android 2.2, app does not validate account, meaning that my productivity has risen as I´m unable to check my email. Please make the app run on my HTC Desire :-(
The app is a great upgrade over the previous offering. However, I am strill frustrated that 1. I cannot upload photos to my contacts in Outlook.com and that 2. the photos used on Outlook.com (presumably from FB, Skype etc.) are not synced down to my phone. I want to abandon Google's offerings, but I can't until this contact picture problem is sorted out.
As a developer of both Android and Windows Phone, they should really take a hard look at the subject line font. It does not need to be that big. In fact if they reduce it by 4sp, it would be so much more readable. The widget is awful too. If you follow the Android guidelines, it would be awesome. I don't think they really tested this application on multiple phones, which is a shame. It is defiantly an improvement over the previous version.
Overall I like it. But did we lose the ability to move emails across folders or am I not seeing it? I accidentally deleted an email but couldn't move it back into my inbox through the new Outlook.com app. Not having this prevents the ability to sort emails into folders which I think is a big deal. The web/mobile web has this functionality and I thought I still had this on the old hotmail app... I'd also like to have the ability to make default font size adjustments due to my resolution or is this locked down as part of the Windows8 look and feel?
