Microsoft announces official OWA app for Android, coming later this year

Office 365 users will soon have an official app for their Android devices

Microsoft has announced Outlook Web App (OWA) for Android. If you’re in a company that uses Office 365 for Business you probably are already familiar with OWA. Outlook Web App is the webmail service that comes with Office 365 or Microsoft Exchange Server. A dedicated OWA app for Android is expected to come later this year.

Outlook Web App includes access to email, calendars, contacts, tasks and more. OWA is a competitor to Google Apps. Microsoft did not give a firm release date for the Android app.

We’ll of course let you know when you can get access and download it. If it’s anything like OWA for iPhone you can look forward to features like conversation view, mark as junk, support for Outlook flags and more. You’ll also be able to manage your schedule, view shared calendars and find contacts.

Anyone out there using an Android handset and using Office 365 at work? Let us know if any of you would use this app.
