Two weeks ago, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced the release of the Outlook for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iOS and a preview of the Outlook for devices running Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Android mobile OS. People enjoyed how Outlook brings together the core tools they needed to get things done; their email, calendar, contacts and files, helping them get more functions performed even on the smallest of screens. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) released the first batch of updates for both platforms and discussed in detail about them on its Office Blogs website.
“We promised to deliver updates to Outlook every few weeks and we’ve been listening closely to your feedback. Today, we are happy to share some of the features we’ve added over the past two weeks”, Microsoft states on its website.
Microsoft’s first release focused on a great end-user experience and they are also building the IT controls that their business customers require. Outlook now has a password enforcement option which uses Exchange ActiveSync. If a company email policy requires a device to have a password in order to sync mail, Outlook will enforce it at the device level.
For devices with iOS, Outlook will make sure a pass-code is properly set, and if it’s not set, it will prompt the user to set that up in iOS settings. An important thing to know is that Outlook for iOS only runs on iOS 8.0 or later. For Android devices, Outlook will enforce the screen lock rules. Outlook will also guide users with a step-by-step walkthrough. Devices which do not support these security settings will not connect to an account. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has also made improvements to how quickly the admin-led remote wipes are executed which is that they will now happen within seconds.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has also delivered on many of the top feature requests they had received from their users which includes IMAP support, which means that Outlook now has the ability to sync mail from email providers that support IMAP, like AOL.com and Comcast.net. In iOS, you now have Toggle Conversation View, which means you can turn this feature off if you would prefer to see each email individually in your mailbox. They are expecting to bring this capability to Android soon.
You can now customize the swipe gestures on Android. The customization option was only available on iOS previously but now it’s available for Android as well. Outlook now lets you personalize your swipe gestures according to your unique email habits. You can now also choose and change your default folders at any time for archive and schedule swipe gestures.
“Over the coming weeks and months, we will deliver additional security and management features that matter to IT as well as user-focused features to help you get even more done while on the go,” Microsoft states on its website.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) always listens to its customers’ feedback and improves its products according to customers’ needs, which is one of the main reasons for its success in the market. These updates are not all, as in addition to such feature improvements, they are also working on adding more documentation about Outlook’s architecture, security, and its administrative controls.
