Earlier this week, we revealed that Microsoft was internally testing a new app made for businesses called Outlook Groups. Now that app has quietly been launched to the public for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone 8.1.
We had trouble downloading it last night with many errors, but those look to be gone this morning as we have successfully installed this app on a few phones now.
The app does require that the user have an active Office 365 work or school account. Here's a look at its features:
- Easily participate in group email conversations
- Share photos and "like" a message, or @mention a person or a group
- Work together using the shared team OneNote's notebook
- View and co-author Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) shared with your group
- Discover and join Office 365 Groups relevant to you
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella showed off how Outlook Groups works earlier this week as part of his address at the Salesforce Dreamforce conference. Again, the app is available just for Windows 10 Mobile and not for Windows 10 on the PC.
