Another one here for Outlook [link]
Use it on my iPad as well. IIRC the app MS bought for calendars called Sunrise will be integrated in at some point.
I just downloaded Outlook on the play store and added it using the Office365 option, AFAIK it redirects to your utorid login and then it automatically does the whole shebang for ya. I tried the guide online and it hasn't worked, and support just redirects me to the same guide...
Switch them to use the Outlook Android app (free) or Nine (paid, has versions for various MDMs and Android Enterprise too but regular versions works fine usually). They're both leagues better than the built-in Samsung up, not as fucky (it's been a problem for years), and has the same calendar app integrations. Just as easy to configure.
Unless they're domain admins or in some special domain group that Exchange needs inheritance on, you're likely gonna keep banging your head against a wall on this.
On mine I use the Outlook app just for my corporate exchange emails. It works flawlessly and I have no complaints so far. :)
I use Microsoft Outlook Preview, mostly because it embeds the exchange calendar & contacts into the app. It's also being made directly by Microsoft so it may take advantage of more exchange features?
I used to use cloud magic because it's pretty much the same, but you could only have 5 accounts...
I've had many problems with that app ( like it suddenly stops updating my account). I've switched to Microsoft Outlook preview and so far I haven't had any problems [link]
Have you tried Microsoft Outlook? That's very good and should work well with Hotmail.
A paid option is Aqua Mail. Very nice email client and well worth the money imo. Very configurable and has Tasker integration if that would be useful to you.
Is it an actual Exchange server or something like Office365? I'm using the Outlook app with Office365 and it works fine. Also set up K9 Material and got it working, but didn't like the app so uninstalled it.
Might I suggest asking /r/androidapps as well since they probably see more users than this sub.
You can try the Outlook app: [link]
I have no issues with the official Gmail app, my emails are forwarded to my primary Gmail account so I can send and receive from that one account.
Okay. Well, have you tried the official Outlook app? Since you're trying to use an MSN account, it might make sense to use their app.
Is Microsoft ever going to listen to the one and two stars reviews for Outlook for Android on Google Play that all say the same thing - sending and receiving emails just does not work properly? How can this still be an issue in 2019?
Don't be fooled by the overall rating, look at the actual reviews for the last couple of months. I actually double checked if I was perhaps using some scam software pretending to be from Microsoft, it's that bad. But unfortunately, it was the real one.
(I should add that other email programs like Samsung Email, Nine etc. has zero problems handling emails for the same accounts on the same phone. I am using only Office 365 accounts BTW, which makes this even more embarrassing for Microsoft.)
I am sure, I am missing something small here but In Client apps > Outlook - Properties (Appstore URL) what's the proper way to add link for Appstore URL link. I have been going to google play and searching the app which i want (in this case Outlook) and then copy and paste the link in Client apps > Outlook - Properties > Appstore URL. (my URL for outlook: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.office.outlook&hl=en_US)
It's creating an additional step on the cell phone (in company portal) when clicked on the app (from the company portal) at the bottom it shows the option of View in Google play and then it takes to the app store and then Install option.
Suggestions are welcome.
IMAP not possible?
My condolences, the Outlook app on Android is terrible shit where even basic things like synchronization of new message does not work :-/ Confirmed by more than 2200 users in Google Play store comments and still not fixed.
> Again, how is W10m "more productive"?
Because the Outlook Mail works there? Here you can read how it "works" on Android, it even can't read new emails! And yes, I can confirm the bug.
Give it a try before dismissing it. It's widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best, free email app. It has a lot of the same features Cloudmagic had.
Concerning Google Photos, there may not be a way to do that, at least not from whatever messaging app you're using. I just tested with Google's Messages app and it has a built in mini gallery and camera, so you'll only be able to take a new photo or share a photo that actually exists on your device. There may or may not exist a messaging app that allows you to grab photos directly from Google Photos; I believe it's technically possible though. The nice thing about Android is that you can choose whatever app you want. Somewhere in you Settings app (possibly Apps > Settings gear (top right) > SMS app) you can change which app is used as your default SMS app if you don't like Samsung's.
If you want to share a photo from Google Photos, open the Google Photos app, select the desired photo, and tap the share button. Then select your messaging app from the list that pops up. Kind of clunky, but it works.
Concerning notifications/alerts, one big difference you'll find between iOS and Android is that Android has no centralized app settings like iOS does. Any app-specific settings, including the way notifications behave (and what sound they play) are controlled via settings within the specific app. Therefore, as others have rightly pointed out, you should look in the email app's settings inside the email app for notification settings, and from there you will almost certainly be able to change what sound is played (if not, switch email apps, Outlook for Android is surprisingly good imo).
It looks like you need Outlook for Android installed on your phone. Outlook for Android Wear looks like a watch face. Do you have Outlook for Android installed on your phone?
Third party email client meaning any email client that is not built into the android OS on your S8 (assuming it's the Gmail app). One of my favorites is Outlook for Mobile.
To troubleshoot the push notifications, perhaps take a look at this thread and see if any of the suggestions apply to your environment:
The Gmail app has always given me issues when using it for @outlook/Hotmail/live emails
Just use the official Microsoft mail app since you're using their email service (Hotmail). I never had any problems with it
We're out to build the best email client on Android and iOS, and need as much help as we can get!

Have you tried the Outlook App? It's actually pretty fantastic and keeps everything separate from Gmail and Calendar.
Check out the outlook android app. B it works real well with exchange. I found out that if you set your rules inside outlook on your pc first it works easier on Android / mobile clients.
I too have folders setup that auto move the emails from senders and subject lines to specific folders.
The android outlook app allows you to sync specific important folders. The app allows you to focus the app on specific folders.
The Outlook official app.
I swipe right, click the People tab, and there are all the contacts that are magically synced to my phone contacts list.
Haha, i am so stupid. After testing 10 different crap apps (over months) i finally found the solution. And it was so easy...... I use now the official Microsoft Outlook App, looks great and have all the features i want :D
I use Outlook to access my email and calendar on my rooted device. Unfortunately I don't have access to my Google Apps Hangouts account, but that's better than nothing.
Try Outlook. I'm currently using it on my rooted device, as I cannot install the Google Apps Device Policy (we use Google Apps for Gmail, etc at work), and it keeps the email, calendar and contacts all within the app.
I mainly use Gmail because the latest versions work well and it also supports non-gmail accounts but I've also installed Outlook
As previously mentioned, a good way to implement the uwo email to your phone would be to forward it to your G-mail. I used to do this too, but the outlook app for android is really a benefit to have now that our system has migrated. When having the email forward to G-mail, you can check, organize and its all good but you cant send any emails. I would recommend the Outlook android app, once in the app just add your UWO email through the "Exchange" mail. that's the one the worked for me. Its not the best thing ever, but its very similar to the gmail app.
Try the new outlook preview? I've yet to try it myself but it seems promising. Like a cloudmagic without restrictions.
But hey I've yet to try it myself so it could be shit for all I know.
Leaving this month because of Facebook/Messenger apps shutdown. Bought Nokia 7 Plus and I am not happy with it. The hardware is ok, except the known USB-C charging port issue, but the Android "OS" is a disaster :-/ As I expected, the Android One program doesn't work at all as security updates are delivered late. It is complicated to get basic things like notifications work, the shitty Android closes all apps due to a crappy memory/battery management and the user interface looks like Palm OS from 1996. Apple is not an option since I need Dual SIM support.
Fortunately I use the phone when travel only, for daily use I have 8" Windows 10 LTE tablet. The tablet doesn't have a GPS, that's why I bought the phone.
Microsoft Outlook on Android is also useless, there are basic functionality bugs that causes new messages to not appear and manual sync doesn't work either.
Some places block this app but if you are very desperate to do this without root, you can try microsoft's application instead of android's exchange implementation. Microsoft tunnels the data through AWS, apparently. I do not know if this still works, many IT departments block this app due to security concerns.
Now, if you have root and Xposed, all you have to do is install one of these (depending on your android version):
Outlook does not require device admin, it supports selective wiping of just the app itself. Plus, it will be required on Android anyway when your department is migrated to O365/Exchange Online. Legacy protocols will be either disabled (IMAP/POP) or unsupported (ActiveSync) due to Duo integration, and the default email apps on various Android devices don't support Modern Authentication. Technically, there are a few more 3rd party apps like Nine and Blue that support Modern Authentication as well, but we'll be pushing Outlook as the recommended client.
For those on iOS 11 or higher, the built-in Mail app does support Modern Authentication, so you can use either it or Outlook once you move to O365.
The official Outlook app also plays along nicely with self-hosted Exchange without asking for insane permissions.
As much as I also like Gmail, have you tried the Outlook app? It works quite well for my work account.
Try Outlook for email. Microsoft has done some pretty good stuff with it's Android apps.
Also tons of browser alternatives. Personally, I just keep going back to Chrome.
Google Photos instead of Gallery for the unlimited cloud backup. Photos also has some nice enhancement features.
I'm one who loves Gboard as well. Lots of great features and customizations.
Seems to be flipping those steaks a little to often.
Get Outlook for Android
I have the Asus ZenWatch 2 as well and still have Microsoft Outlook on my watch and phone. And, with the exception of the Bonus I list at the end of this post. It works just like it always has.
NOTE: This probably has nothing to do with your issue, but just in case...I noticed that the App name on the Play Store is: Microsoft Outlook. However on the phone and watch it is named just : Outlook
Hopefully this may help you!
The last 3 preview images on the Outlook app on the Play store show the app on Android Wear watches.
As long as Outlook is installed on the Phone, you should also have the app available under your Apps on you ZenWatch 2.
My MS Outlook version number is 2.2.71 on the phone and watch.
Things to try and or consider
In an unrelated twist, Outlook on Android Wear 2.0 works just like it always did in AW 1.5 with the exception of it does not advance the date on the watch face for some reason. Other than that, it works the same. See Here and Here
I use Outlook for email/cals for exchange. I like it a lot.
I think the official Outlook app has a Wear app as well.
I'll give it a go...
I bought this watch in December and have 100% loved it.FWIW, it is the only Smart Watch I have owned.
To answer your questions:
Quickly access time tracker (e.g. Toggl) - Not sure about this. I do not use it. But, I'm sure you;ll find a workable solution.
Quickly controlling my podcast/music app without the pull out/put away my phone struggle - Yes. Several options. Google Play Music | Spotify - Both of these work well and easy to control. Options for audio output available too. You can use a bluetooth headset paired to the watch or play through the watch speaker (lower quality, but works), or play through phone, and control from watch. Lots of possibilities.
Maybe a few tripps trough europe (Easy navigation access) - I haven't used this much, but, yes it works well. Google Maps is the obvious choice here (Baked In) although I'm sure other options work as well. Basically, you will get step by step directions on the watch face.
Keeping track of health related stuff, step counter, heart rate monitor etc - Yes, except the heart rate monitor. There is NOT a Built in Heart Rate Monitor. Everything else, yes. Your options are almost endless. Here are some of the ones I have tried and liked:
ASUS ZenFit |
Google Fit |
Under Armour Record |
Jawbone - UP® – Smart Coach for Health
-Will this device drastically reduce the need to pull out my phone and is it useful for sport/health related stuff? I would say definitely on all concerns. Everyone, obviously, is different and has different needs/preferences and I am certain you will find the combination of apps to suit your needs.
My personal review of sorts:
I have been thoroughly impressed with this watch. I hadn't even worn a watch for at least 15 years and wasn't sure I would even want yet another source of constant information on me at all times now. I am overly satisfied that I did get it. Your concerns sound like mine did. I do not regret my purchase at all. I will also add that it's durability is very impressive. I wear it in a busy environment (hands on equipment, tools, hot and cold items/areas, etc). It has stood up to everything I have thrown at it thus far!
The bands are customizable, you can easily replace with one you like better. You are not locked to an 'ASUS' branded band.
The ONLY downside I have to offer is that it will be getting Android Wear 2.0, but hasn't yet! I'm waiting, impatiently, like a lot of others.
There are plenty more good things to say about this watch, but for now I will just say that I do not think you will be disappointed at all. I believe it will meet your satisfaction for the quality, ability and price.
Mine sync's no problem, make sure you are using the Outlook.com app.
Try "Outlook" by Microsoft. It has it's own Calendar section within the app.
Not sure where I said Outlook 2013.
Try Outlook for Android. It is currently in Preview but it works extremely well. It is made by Microsoft itself.
For lockscreen calendar, I use Calendar Notify.
What about Outlook ?
There's an Outlook app that will connect to OWA.
Or you could use your browser to log in.
Just use Outlook.

Try the outlook app, it has a specific iCloud section [link]
oh and of course the official outlook app:
I believe the latest version of Gmail allows you to add exchange accounts to it see here for a guide. But probably the best functional email for Exchange would be the Microsoft Outlook App
Calendar apps are plentiful and you would just have to try them out to see which one you like the best. A couple of good options are Today Calendar,
And maybe Jorte it was good a few years ago, but I don't know if they sold out or any of that.
I just use Timely for my alarm clock and timer needs.
If you want to use the Gmail app then no.
Otherwise you can use Microsoft Outlook.
You can either download the outlook app or go to the website via a browser.
Go here if you haven't set your password yet.
The official Microsoft Outlook app tends to work pretty well for the school email. iOS and Android. Personally, I use Nine (Android) for my email, but I don't use the Office 365 calendar so I don't really have any recommendations other than Outlook for that.
Outlook is surprisingly good.
You could try using Microsoft's Outlook Android app. It's actually not bad.
I just downloaded and installed the Outlook Preview and it seems to work ok. :)
Try the new Microsoft Outlook Preview app. Works great for my work email.
You try the Outlook app?
Some people use the native mail client on their mobile, but if you want to keep your school email separate from your personal then the Outlook app is the preferred app. Here for iOS and here for Android. The latest edition of the Outlook app has a "Focused" & "Other" view. The Focused view is everything Microsoft thinks you want to see, and the Other - well it's the other stuff, the stuff that's not quite junk mail but mail that you don't open so Outlook hides it from you. This is pretty similar to Gmail's "Promotion" & "Social" tabs. So make sure you're looking in both places if there is a mail you're expecting. We've just gotten the first report of Blackboard messages going to the "Clutter" folder, which is the desktop version of "Other". We're considering disabling this feature for that reason. If you're still having problems, consider visiting the Technology Support Desk on the first floor of the library (M-F, 11-4). They're our mobile Geek Squad.
Thanks for choosing NIU, by the way!
Outlook Calendar and Mail
I already sold all my Lumia phones (sad) because of the Facebook Messenger shutdown. Also new Uber mobile web site no longer worked in any W10M browser.
Unfortunately the Outlook Calendar and Mail on Android is terrible crap, there are bugs in basic functionality like synchronizing new messages.
~~Not on stock ROMs. The multiple user thing is typically a feature reserved for tablets.~~
~~You can use a separate app for work email and personal, if you absolutely only want to carry one phone. My recommendation aside from whatever built-in app you're using for email is Outlook.~~
Edit: I'm wrong. See above.
Manual Sync doesn't work for more than 2000 people, see comments in Play Store.
Notification badge works for the first message only, but not for any other until you restart the application. And it is the only application that has this issue.
