That Gmail icon on your phone’s home screen may soon receive some company from the folks at Microsoft, provided that you already have an Office 365 business mailbox. Today, the software giant from Redmond released a beta version of its Outlook Web App (OWA) for Android. Since this isn’t a final build, it’s likely that more features will be added over time and you can definitely expect to encounter a few bugs while using the app.

As for features that are available, OWA for Android users can look up a contact or check their schedule via voice commands, as well as access their calendar. If this all sounds appealing and you’re willing to give OWA a whirl, you’ll need a device running KitKat 4.4 or later, a mailbox running on Office 365 for business and a device considered “small” or “normal” by Android’s standards. If your setup fits the bill and you don’t mind using unfinished software, head on over to Google Play and check out Microsoft’s newest Android app.
