The Outlook.com app has recently updated, this brings a set of new features and functions. The major diferences are on search, email archive, vacation auto-responders and aliases, it brings also more color. Now the user can choose of a bigger whole of colors in order to personalize it a little bit more.
The biggest change for common users is the server-side searching. With this update, both your local mailbox and Microsoft’s storage can be searched without download it. This is shown in the above picture and as you can see, the local searches appear first with an option to “search more in Outlook.com.”
Outlook for Android users will now be able to send email from an alias, as opposed to be limited to your standard address. This works just like the Windows 8 mail app or using Outlook on the web. The vacation replies are simple, but should be welcomed for those looking to put the phone down while on vacation.
