Outlook.com Android app updated based on your feedback

Microsoft's Outlook.com team has pushed out an update to the Outlook.com Android app that has a few bug fixes that will likely appease those of you who use the app on your Android phone. 

The updated app was released back in early April and this update to the platform shows Microsoft's commitment to keeping the app updated and polished for its end users. While we don't know if this quick release is part of Microsoft's rapid-release cycle or simply general best practices, either way, Microsoft is working quickly to push out updates to many of its products to keep them from going flat.

The updates to the app were based on feedback the Outlook.com team has received from its users. If you have a suggestion or have spotted a bug in the app, make sure to let the team know (you can reply here, we know they read these posts, or hit them up on Twitter) as they are listening to end users.

You can head on over to the Google Play store to get the update as it is now live in the store.

I keep having to re-log in every day and a half or so. Is that a bug or is there some setting that I can't find to keep me logged in on my phone. When I do try to log on it randomly tells me log-in error and I then have to enter the funky access code.

just downloaded and checked.. it's working flawlessly on Android 2.2.. very happy to see this app coming to older android version.

I hope they have resolved the issue with Android 2.2 where we can't access outlook.com on old devices.. always says Authentication failure

Will check that out in an hour and post it again my feedback.

Good Hotmail's worst successor get even worser! It took me 15 mins to login, and it takes forever to open an email now. Good job Microsoft, now you're close to the facebook application on android.

i want my hotmail back.

15 mins to login..... lol I think the problem is with you the operator.

It has certainly improved, but some bizarre and poor choices including showing only "ME" to identify a thread that I was most recent to reply to???!!! How about showing who I'm conversing with? You know, like any other mail client including Outlook.com? How am I supposed to know who I'm conversing with as I look down the list?

Why do people would use this over the stock email app in Android? that works perfectly with Hotmail / Outlook.

Push email along with contact / calendar sync.

I'm glad I have a Windows Phone now... I was frustrated having to use all these separate apps for mail when I was on Android... whereas with WinPhone everything just works in the built in Outlook. Android needs to better their mail client.

Umm use the regular email client? There's Gmail and then theres a plain generic email app. So yea, you didn't have to use separate apps for each account.

No the login still issue still not fixed yet. I updated the app and a triangle in the notification still saying that I must login again. But it receives new emails when pressing the back button to hide the message after starting the app !!!

I hope this fixes its ridiculous battery drain. Quite often I get to about halfway through the day and see I have very low battery left. Go in and check whats using it and lo and behold Outlook has used up almost all of it.

Not able to login... still get white screen and no login page... on Note 2. I guess they didn't fix the login.

I guess I will use web version instead.

Hopefully this fixes the issue I've been having. When clicking on a new email notification in the pulldown notification area, the Outlook app crashes.

Well.. frankly the last releases have been hit with a lot of negative feedback.. the app itself is... i frankly can't find words to describe it. I really hope they improved it! I used the old hotmail app until was discontinued :\

Been using it on my Xperia, i think its a really nice app, never had any crash or issue.

Frankly... it's not about performance issues, those are kinda rare, I meant the design itself.
I think the app is absolutely gorgeous.
