Microsoft adds new calendar-related feature to Outlook for Android
There's nothing more frustrating than having to check two, three or sometimes four apps just to make sure that you won't be late to your meeting or that you don't miss your flight. As we continue to heavily rely on our smartphones for our agendas, we need everything to be as streamlined as possible.

One of the apps that are trying to put everything you need in one place is Microsoft's Outlook. Either it's email, calendar, or contacts, the app offers easy access to all of them. And, with the latest update, Outlook is becoming more essential to those who've decided to give it a chance a long time ago.

Apart from the usual weekly updates that include performance improvements and bug fixes top optimize the app, this week's update brings a new option that allows Outlook users to synchronize multiple calendars.

The new feature enables users to access all their events in just one place by adding calendars that have already been synced with their smartphones. The new feature is only available in the Android version of the app, which is now up for grabs via Google Play Store.

Need the other way. We need device calendar access to outlook calendar. With office 365 we are forced to use outlook on android and no native integration in to gmail or samsung email.

I use MS launcher which allows you to sign in 365. It allows you to import calendars.
