Shared calendar support comes to Outlook on iOS

A pretty significant update is now available for Outlook for iOS, adding support for shared calendars. With shared calendar support, Outlook users can not only share their calendars from the iOS app, but they can also edit permissions while on the go. And while that's the extent of new features in this update, but it should prove a fairly big addition for anyone who relies on Outlook to handle their calendar duties.

Here's a look at all of what's new:

  • See who you're sharing your calendar with by tapping on the settings wheel next to your calendar's name. You'll also see the default permissions that others in your organisation have.
  • Share your calendar with other people, edit permissions or remove them without heading back to your computer.

If you want to check out the Shared Calendar features for yourself, you can pick up Outlook version 2.16.0 at the App Store now. Shared calendars themselves are currently available to users and are in the process of rolling out to Office 365 users.
