One of the themes of Satya Nadella’s short tenure as Microsoft CEO so far has been an increasing focus on bringing Microsoft’s most valuable properties to multiple platforms. The latest evidence is a new Outlook app introduced on Google Play this Wednesday. Generically named Outlook Web App, the email client is very similar to the Outlook app introduced on iOS last summer: a barebones way to check a paid Office 365 for Business email account, as well as look up contacts and check calendars on the run. Unfortunately, it won’t work for Outlook.com email accounts just yet, but based on Microsoft’s recent history, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a version for consumers in the near future.
