It is oriented to business users and educators, who need to have an Office 365 School or work account. As well as affording the ability to keep tabs on group members, there are also several other collaborative features in the app.

The latest update brings an enhanced conversations experience, quicker access to conversations, and the standard performance enhancements and bug fixes. The full changelog is below:

Ability to pin group conversations
Ability to conversation on pinned tiles (for groups with notifications turned on)
Inline notification and subscription management for groups
Memory and performance improvements
Minor bug and crash fixes

In May, Microsoft updated the service with the addition of connector card support and the ability to attach new files. Outlook on has recently scored a Safety & Tips feature which launched to help keep users secure on the cloud-based service.

If you are interested in testing Outlook Groups, you can grab the application now through the Windows Store on your Mobile device. Users who already have the app will not have to do a thing as the update will happen automatically.
