These New Features On Outlook For Android Will Make Scheduling Easier

Microsoft has unveiled some new features that will be coming to Outlook for Android. The features mostly focus on the app’s online meetings and video calls.

 

While most of these features on Outlook for Android are improvements on existing features, the others will roll out very soon. Microsoft says the new features in Outlook, combined with Teams, To Do, My Analytics, and other Microsoft 365 apps can help users spend less time preparing for meetings, make scheduling easier and other benefits.

 

“Online meetings and video-calls have replaced the informal hallway conversations, the office drop-ins, and even some of the social conversations people have. More meetings also mean more time needed to prepare for them and ensure follow-ups happen. Easily finding the files and emails you need for a meeting can help you spend less time preparing for it,” it said in a blog post.

 

Microsft also announced the new Outlook for Android features in a Tweet.
