What is the new Outlook Web Access (WBA) for Android?


With Android WBA 1.1, you can use the same Outlook Web View to access your web browsing history and contacts.

But there are some important caveats to note:• Outlook WebAccess requires a subscription from your carrier to be available for browsing, and the service is limited to Android devices that are running the latest version of the OS.• Outlook’s search and navigation functionality is still limited, and it doesn’t work offline.• There’s no built-in calendar support for Gmail or Google Calendar on Android WBCs.

You can sign up for an Outlook WebBrowsing account with your carrier or Google Account, but you’ll have to do it once for each Android device you want to use it on.

For example, if you’re using your Google account to sync your Google calendars on your Google Android device, you’ll need to sign up with your Google Account and then sign up again for the Google Calendar Sync service on your Android WBT.• The Outlook Web access is not available on Apple devices running iOS 8.1.2 or later.

Google’s new WBA browser for Android doesn’t support Web browsing.

Instead, it’s built into Android, which means you’ll still need to use a web browser to get web access.

Google isn’t releasing details about WBA for Android on its developer site, but it says that it’s looking into adding support for the feature in the future.
