  1. OWA retiring?

    The App now has a message stating that OWA is being retired on 5/15/18 and recommends switching to Outlook for Android.

    Have you incorporated the OWA features to Outlook for Android. We switched to OWA a few months ago because the syncing of messages was better on OWA and it helped separate work related messages (OWA) from personal emails (Outlook).

    • OWA App Crashing After Android O Update

      Been using the OWA app on my Note 8 for a while now. It was working just fine when my phone was running Android Nougat. Today I happen to update to latest Android Oreo but whenever now I am trying to open the app it is only loading a white blank screen on it's startup and simply closing itself after few seconds. How do I fix it??

      • Galaxy Note 8

        I recently am having a problem with calendar. There was a system update. I click the four horzental bars to the far left side panel opend but the the info is gone. it also will not close.
        Also I am sync with my office 365 bussiesd accont. I have four calender but sometimes they all show and sometimes the don't. I know this id a pre-release and I appreciate taking part in the development but how far away are you away from a release date? I use this for business and it is starting to be a little buggy.

          • Stuck downloading an app update

            I am stuck in an endless loop of "downloading an app update", "checking for new mail", and after it asks me to 'Refresh' to install the situation repeats. Uninstalling the OWA and reinstalling it does not work. I am on Android 7.1.

                • Update for Chrome 63.0.3239.111

                  I'm stuck on the login screen because every time the app tries to open it says it needs to reset. I read online that i could downgrade my version of Chrome to make the problem disappear, but i believe you should update the app instead.

                  • Notifications remain stale

                    Notifications for email and calendar come to my phone but then remain there all day even after I've read the message or dismiss the reminder on my laptop Outlook MS Exchange. Sync these so that unread/new notifications disappear from phone if action is taken on another device.

                    • Please can you add option for landscape mode. Much easier to type on the 6" style phones

                      With so many new phones adopting the 6" plus format and 18:9 aspect ratio it would be useful to have access to landscape mode for effective typing

                        • Email Push Notification with details

                          Please add more details to the push notification about a new email. With the outlook app and even my native email app I get who sent the email, the subject and a brief view of the contents of the email in my notification bar. Please add this functionality to the OWA app.

                          • I need to sign into multiple OWA accounts. Allow easy account switching.

                            I have multiple accounts that would use OWA. For example a school account and a work account. I need both, but I can't use both of them in the phone app. As a matter of fact there's not even an easy way to log out of the OWA app so I can switch accounts!

                                  • OWA doesn't need access to contscts

                                    Don't require contact access. Outlook is normally for work, why require personal device contacts?

                                      • If we are using Microsoft Office Home, how is this supposed to work?
