Microsoft overhauls navigation, conversations and search in Outlook for Android and iOS
Outlook is one of those apps that provide one of the most valuable services for consumers and businesses: email. The latest version of Outlook promises to reshape the way users navigate, chat and search within the application.
The Redmond-based company has just announced that it launched a new Outlook on iOS and Android, which feature redesigned conversation, navigation, and search. With the new app, users will be able to quickly switch between accounts and browse folders. Also, new intelligent search capabilities powered by Microsoft Graph will be added soon.
Conversation-wise, Microsoft redesigned Outlook to show more of a conversation at once. The app will now offer a clearer separation between individual messages. Other tweaks like the option to quick reply to everyone by just tapping the quick reply box, as well as the ability to edit or forward a conversation, have been implemented too.
Moreover, People and Files will be integrated into the search experience. Last but not least, whenever you type a name in the search box, Outlook will display suggestions from most frequent contacts.
