Nowadays, Microsoft Outlook is one of the best email management apps. However, it has a lot of room for improvement, every app can improve and in Outlook they are aware. Now they are working on a small improvement that will make Outlook a better app on smartphones, especially for companies.
Very soon we will see the company logo in business accounts in Outlook
Today if we have several accounts configured on our device we do not have a simple way to identify the different accounts on iOS or Android unless they are from Outlook or Gmail. Business accounts have a generic icon.
This means that it is sometimes difficult to differentiate between our accounts.
Fortunately it seems that this is about to change. Microsoft is incorporating company logos into the Outlook mobile app. The Redmond giant wants to improve the key Office app and even a small gesture will improve the Outlook experience in the details.
When the update deploys the new Outlook app for iOS and Android, the logo of our organization will be displayed, which is defined in Azure Active Directory, in the navigation area on the left and when composing messages and calendar events. This feature will greatly help users to differentiate their work accounts from their personal accounts in the app.
The update will begin rolling out in early May and they expect to complete the rollout by the end of June. The logo will not appear if a user only has a single account, there is no logo defined in Azure Active Directory, or users have multiple work accounts from the same company, such as with shared mailboxes.
Administrators who have not set up a logo can refer to Microsoft’s tips for adding branding to their organization’s login page. We will be attentive to keep you informed about new changes.
