Microsoft has rolled out a new update for Outlook on Android. The mobile email app comes with a couple of interesting new features. Also included in this release is the usual unnamed performance improvements and bug fixes.
For reference, this update brings Outlook on Android to version 4.0.7.
As mentioned, there are some interesting new additions to the experience. Leading the feature changes is support for POP3 accounts. POP3 is over two decades old, but the Post Office Protocol is still used. Outlook now supports accounts created in POP3. Users can make an account through the app settings.
Elsewhere in version 4.0.7., Microsoft has added support for larger displays. To make Outlook more flexible across screen forms, the app now has a three-panel layout.
Furthering changes to how Outlook interacts with screens, Microsoft says users can now have as many windows open as they want in DeX mode. DeX is a Samsung Galaxy feature that allows the smartphone to be mimicked on a desktop screen.
Samsung announced an overhauled DeX experience last month, including full phone integration and notifications.
