Microsoft updates Outlook for Android with add-ins, Gmail will soon get the same treatment

Microsoft launched add-ins for Outlook on iOS early this year but promised to provide the same features on the rival platform. Well, today is the day that Outlook users on Android get to benefit from the same functionality.

The Redmond-based company is now rolling out add-ins to Outlook on Android users with and Office 365 commercial email accounts. On top of the that, Microsoft announced that it will bring add-ins to Gmail users on both Android and iOS platforms.

Aside from the add-ins that made their debut on iOS such as Evernote, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft Translator, Nimble, OnePlaceMail, Outlook Customer Manager, Smartsheet, and Trello, Microsoft confirmed it is launching new add-ins, including Wrike, JIRA, MeisterTask, Gfycat, and MojiLala.

In order to enable all these add-ins announced by Microsoft, you'll have to head to Settings / Add-ins and tap the + sign next to the add-ins that you want to use. More details about these new add-ins launched today are available at the link below.

Could they create an add on so I can manage contacts on my phone instead of needing to use my PC.

You can manage them now with the current app. It was just added in the last month or so. You can either do it from the Outlook App or if you sync them to the system contacts app. As my co-worker said, "Welcome to 1995."

All they need to add is finger printer unlocking like the iOS version and I’ll be all set.

The two add install I use on regular outlook all the time are Findtime and Boomerang. Unfortunate those still aren't available for the Outlook app.
