Microsoft has launched Outlook Lite, a new lighter version of its popular Outlook app for low-end Android devices. With the launch of the new Microsoft Outlook Lite app, users can now enjoy all of the benefits of using Outlook on their Android devices. It is optimized to run smoothly on Android devices, even those with a limited amount of RAM, and is battery-friendly too. It works across all networks worldwide, including cellular networks, including 2G and 3G. Microsoft claims that more countries will follow in the near future, and the app is available to download now.
The streamlined version of Outlook has a small file size of 5 MB and should run faster on a phone. It will run on any 2G or 3G network and be optimized for low-end devices. It will also be compatible with a variety of devices, including older Android smartphones and tablets.
