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:
I can't get tasks to sync on android. Anyone got it?
Yesterday i updated this app and to my surprise, doesn't work. Please Microsoft, you need to test before launch or publish the update
I'm really disapointed that I canno choose between outlook or hotmail application. You could have suggest the new application but let us the choice of going back to hotmail. The new app sucks. It doesn't have half the features hotmail had like the very useful save to calendar. Please let us use hotmail again until you fix the new app.
Trying to get onto my android app and keep getting message authentication failed. Changed my password and everything. Please advise. I cannot even get access to my email on my phones default app for mail. Whats going on?
I too get the authentication failed message after inputting my credentials and allowing the app access to specific assets on my phone. At least I could login with the Hotmail app. What happened here?
What about calendar and contacts?
I used to use outlook calendar and contacts rather than google calendar and contacts.
I don't want to share or upload all these info on clouds.
Outlook.com app android version seens doesn't support sync calendar and contacts from PC to Android phone!!???
I won't use Outlook.com app if it can only manage mails.
Microsoft throw away all exist customers who are using PC outlook's calendar and contacts.
When will there be support for Ukrainian language in the Android Outlook.com app?
Protection password does not work. Great app! Enjoy!
Bug: recipients are getting my emails with the email address as the "From" name instead of my actual name
1 - New mail notifications should display the Name and subject, Use Jelly Bean's Extended notifications (Reply From Notifications) and Actionable Notifications (display the full text of new mail)
2 - Custom notifications for new mail from specific contacts / folders (especially useful when using Rules / Sweep) and option to notify only for specific contacts / folders
3 - Add new widget (icon only 1*1) that shows number of new messages on top of outlook icon
4 - Existing widget needs a scroll bar and be able to change the size of the widget
5 - Ability to Sync Tasks
6 - Editable contacts on phone
7 - Be able to change font size
8 - Option to view (sync) all mail, not just the last 30 days
9 - Ability to save attachments to Skydrive
Made a mistake, 1 should read as follows:
1 - New mail notifications should display the Name and subject, Use Jelly Bean's Extended notifications (display the full text of new mail) and Actionable Notifications (Reply From Notifications)
It is unfortunate that existing Hotmail app forces to upgrade to Outlook app and Outlook app does not work below Android 2.3. So people with older version of Android will have to rely on third party apps.
And what exactly are those running Android 2.2 or lower supposed to do? Well done, Microsoft. I may finally make the switch to Gmail.
PLEASE tell me there is a way to shrink the size of the sender names! The current size forces too few messages on a screen!! I scroll in screen size chunks, and this forces me to scroll a LOT more than before.
I am going to have to delete this app and find a different way to access my emails. The font size is RIDICULOUS! Why do I need the app shouting at me? Names are cut off, and it seriously limits the amount of data on a screen. Maybe if I got 3 emails a day from people I know it would be OK, but I get a hundred a day from all kinds of sources. New look makes it unusable!
One of the major bug is that when email get sent it does not display the name to the recipient just rather the email address of the sender. This is for any android device 4.2.1 but any device with lower version, shows the name. I am surprised Microsoft has not tested these before putting this on google. This is a bug that should have been fixed right away. needs more work.... the name font should be smaller...rather it is too big.
