Microsoft is working hard to make the Outlook app better. The outlook email app is getting useful new features almost every month and that there are a number of features that Microsoft is planning to add in the coming months. One of the features that Microsoft is currently working on is ‘Categories’ for Outlook.

According to the famous reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi, Microsoft is currently working on a new feature called ‘Categories’ for the Microsoft Outlook Android app. The feature is meant to help you better manage your emails by grouping them into various categories. You’ll also be able to group events and your Microsoft Outlook contacts. As you can see in the below images, the new feature can be found under ‘Preferences’ in the Settings of the Outlook app.

You’ll be able to choose a name and color for the category, and if you want to change the name or color in the future, you’ll also be able to do that. What’s unfortunate is that we don’t know when this feature will be available for the public. We also expect Microsoft to add the feature to the Outlook iOS app at a later date. Meanwhile, you can download Microsoft Outlook from the below link.
