Microsoft releases Outlook Lite for low-cost Android devices

In early July, Microsoft officials said they were preparing a smaller and faster Outlook Lite app for low-cost Android devices. On August 1, Microsoft began rolling out Outlook Lite in a number of countries. The app is available for free download on the Google Play Store.

“Outlook Lite packs the core functionality of Microsoft Outlook into a small, high-performance app for lightweight devices on any network,” including 2G and 3G networks, officials confirmed this week.

The Lite app includes access to email, calendar, and contacts, and the download size is about 5MB. It is optimized to run fast on all Android devices, including those with 1 GB of RAM, and is expected to consume less power than usual. Appearance. Outlook Lite currently supports Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live, MSN, Microsoft 365, and Microsoft Exchange Online accounts.

Not in France at the moment

Microsoft plans to add support for third-party accounts and multiple accounts “in the future,” officials said. Outlook Lite does not support Android work profile and mobile application management (MAM) for business accounts. Therefore, Microsoft recommends that business users who require these features continue to use the existing Outlook mobile client for Android rather than the Lite version.

As of August 1, the app is only available in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Mexico, Peru, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Venezuela. Officials said they would consider adding support for other countries in the future.

Some company watchers said that Microsoft already has Outlook Lite on the market in a number of countries. I asked Microsoft if the app coming out this week was an update to something that was already available. So far there is no answer.
