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:
Bug: recipients are getting my emails with the email address as the "From" name instead of my actual name
1 - Send emails from aliasses, “send-and-receive accounts” & “send-only accounts” from within the outlook.com app
2 - 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)
3 - Custom notifications for new mail from specific contacts / folders (especially useful when using Rules / Sweep) and option to notify only for specific contacts / folders
4 - Add new widget (icon only 1*1) that shows number of new messages on top of outlook icon
5 - Existing widget needs a scroll bar and be able to change the size of the widget
6 - Add Tasks sync
7 - Editable contacts on phone
8 - Option to view (sync) all mail, not just the last 30 days
9 - Be able to change font size
10 - Ability to save attachments to Skydrive
11 - When email get sent it goes as plaint text, we should have the option of having html or plain text as it does for reading the email
Messages don't appear as html. Most most messages do not even give me the option to view as html. Am I missing something?
The android version on my S2 only syncs via wifi. I've tried EVERY action/configuration possible but I have not been able to access my email over 3G, H or whatever. Please advice....
How do I change the font of my email messages? For the Outlook App on Android?
Hi Michelle, that's not possible right now. We're looking at providing that ability in the future.
1. It has taken a person 12 days to respond regarding why we cannot change the font text size within the inbox Names and Headers as well as email body?? The return response? It is not possible to do this within the Outlook Android App at this stage?? Why? This a Microsoft / Outlook / web most basic industry 'minimum/must' requirement yet you do not state this is high priority or when to resolve???
2. If there is NO embedded picture or wide banner (as a picture) within the email body it appears text auto wrap within the screen width does work however if there is a banner (picture) wider than the phone screen size within the email body then you have the disaster of all the email text/ body falls off to the right of the email/page making impossible to read long email/ newsletters by instead of scrolling down you have to read right to left off the screen and then down??
Can a Microsoft engineer from Outlook tell us explain how this auto wrap when there is wide banner /picture within the email body to be resolved?? Maybe if you did not first click on download image then the top banner width is ignored and the email body can all fit within the screen as per default auto wrap ??
Now that all the Hotmail boxes are transferred to Outlook we expect faster resolution times. Surely Microsoft App engineers understand resolving the BASIC functions such inbox and email body ability to choosing font size (for different eye distance strengths and phone screen sizes) as well as text auto wrap when there is an embedded banner MUST be of the highest priority???
When will there be an Android Outlook App update to resolve both above?
The two issues you described are ones that we're looking at addressing in app updates. No timing on that yet. Thanks.
Hi I have Samsung Galaxy S3 and have the same problem. I am able to download emails via wifi and nothing happens over 3G... any help resolve it... Otherwise it's a good app, it absolutely syncs all my folders.
I was forced to update to the Outlook app. At first no issues, downloaded, then installed it.
It asked for my username / password. Done.
Then once I press sign in and asks me if I want to push for emails. Done.
After that, it loops back to the username / password insert screen.
And I once again, type my username / password.......................and asks me again the same questions........
.......in conclusion, I'm in loop around here and the Outlook doesn't show my inbox or any email as I can't even pass that screen.... I'm using Samsing Galaxy S 2 , Androidn version 4.1.2
Same here, can't access to my email over 3G, H or whatever. Samsung Galaxy S 2 here.
I now can't access hotmail / live mail through my phone.....major bump........ and for what I read already, tons of other users also can't............. before Outlook everything was so easy and simple........................now...... it doesn't even work.
Forcing your users to use this app is ridiculous if so much aint fucntioning right yet
I made an account here to post some problems the app has.
- Font size (obviously)
- With notifications, I want a notification in my header on my Samsung G S4, with hotmail o got this without vibrating all the time. There are 3 options in the app, audio noti. Message noti. and vibrate. I want with message noti. the possibilty turning off vibriting with that!!!
- Option to post under Alias
Three major problems of the App, please do something, otherwise the app is great, truly.
Kind regards, happy outlook user
The new Outlook.com application doesn't work over 3g / mobile data on my Galaxy s2 handset running Android 4.1.2. The app works fine over a wifi connection, but that's no good when you are out from home on the road. The old hotmail application worked fine. Please fix.
There are lots of posts over at answers.microsoft.com, but no solutions, eg answers.microsoft.com/.../916b5001-3f93-441a-9203-444ea94de26f
Can not authenticate account and now can not use Hotmail any more.
What stupid idiot made that decision? He/she ought to be fired!
Or perhaps I will just CLOSE my Hotmail account.
Reply kindly requested.
If you like something, you will tell three people. If you hate something, you will tell everyone!!
Is this the kind of advertisement your company wants?
I was not happy being forced to use an app that DOES NOT WORK! Now I cant even check my mail from my mobile. The app is stuck in an "account requires re-login" loop. Fix it or at least let everyone use the hotmail app untill you do.
