Microsoft is developing an Android version of Outlook Lite that is quicker and smaller. Outlook Lite is described as “an Android app that combines the primary advantages of Outlook in a reduced app size with quick performance for low-end devices on any network” in the Microsoft 365 roadmap, which provides more information about the app.
The Outlook Lite app will eventually be accessible worldwide, according to the plan. According to ZDNet, Outlook Lite is currently available in a few nations, indicating that Microsoft is getting it ready for a wider release. According to Microsoft’s own literature, Outlook Lite won’t allow work or school accounts and will only support Outlook, Hotmail, Live, and MSN accounts.
One of the first significant software businesses to do so was Meta, which modified its original Facebook Android app. In 2015, Facebook Lite, a 1MB software specifically targeted towards underdeveloped regions, debuted. In 2018, Google released its series of “Go” slim Android applications, which included Gmail Go.
With more than 500 million downloads on the Google Play Store, Outlook mobile is one of the most downloaded email apps for Android. The finest iOS email app, according to The Verge, is Outlook, which is also a top pick for Android users.
A fresh Outlook for Windows app is also being tested by Microsoft. Based on Outlook on the web, the new app is now undergoing testing. In the upcoming years, it will gradually take the place of the Outlook for Windows program.
