Outlook Web App for Android Available to Limited Phones
Microsoft today followed through on a promise it made earlier this year to deliver an Android version of its Outlook Web App. Outlook Web App is an email application that offers all the features and functionality of Microsoft's Exchange ActiveSync technology. Microsoft released a version of OWA for iOS devices last year. OWA for Android is different from the Outlook.com web mail client that Microsoft already offers to Android devices. Instead, it is a business-class piece of software that allows mobile professionals to choose an Android device and still benefit from Microsoft's email service. Though the app is now available from the Google Play Store, it is only compatible with a very small number of handsets. According to Microsoft, it requires Android 4.4 KitKat or higher, an Office 365 for Business email account, and a device considered to be "small" or "normal" as defined by the Android operating system. Devices and accounts that meet these criteria can download and install Outlook Web App on their Android phone for free.
