It’s been less than a week since Microsoft’s brand new Outlook app made its debut on iOS, and already it is getting its first update, which brings a number of nice changes and improvements.
With the latest Outlook release — version 1.0.2 — users who don’t like to see their emails grouped by conversation can now disable this feature from within the app’s settings menu. From then on, emails that are part of existing conversations will be displayed individually, just like any other message.
Microsoft has also added advanced account settings — which allows users to make manual changes to their system folders and better organize their inboxes on the go — and made it easier to add a Box account from within the files screen.
This update also brings “small improvements” to user interface elements around the app, and fixes some bugs that were in the previous release.
This Outlook update may not be a major one, but it does add features that will be important to many users. There are rival email apps that offer these things already, and so it is important for Microsoft to plug the gaps quickly if it wants users to stick with its new Outlook app.
If you haven’t already got it, you can download the new Microsoft app for free from the App Store using the link below. I highly recommend you give it a try; it’s great.
