3 New Outlook Web App Features Coming to Office 365

MEC 2014 announcements feature Office 365

At this week's Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC) in Austin, the company is continuing to show us how it is delivering on its cloud- and mobile-first strategy by focusing heavily on new Office 365 functionality. During the keynote, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Jeff Teper outlined three new features that are coming to the Outlook Web App (OWA) in Office 365 later this year, which help increase efficiency and collaboration for its users.

1. Clutter

This new feature provides Office 365 users with a simple way to manage high-volume email. Leveraging Exchange's intelligence technology, this feature works by separating your unimportant and important email. What's nice about this feature is that it doesn't require the user to create unnecessary or complicated rules. Also, this feature works to detect your deletion patterns to provide you with a more personalized and clear view of your inbox over time.

2. Document Collaboration

A new "send as link" feature lets Office 365 users attach documents as a simple link through OneDrive for Business. Within OneDrive for Business, attachments are now included in conversations in a special, side-by-side view, providing everything you need in one, seamless view.

3. OWA for Android

Following the Office for iPad announcement last week, Microsoft also announced that it's continuing to deliver on its cloud and mobile vision by providing Android support for OWA. In addition to existing support for Windows devices, iPhone, and iPad, Android devices will now be able to access their Exchange mailboxes from any platform.
