Microsoft has pushed an update to the Outlook app on Android, adding a useful feature and no other changes. Taking the app to version 4.2232.1, the latest update now allows Outlook users on Android to review Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files sent to them over email without leaving the email app. If this sound familiar, the company recently integrated Microsoft To Do with Outlook for Windows.

Below is the official changelog in case you want to learn about the new capability directly from Microsoft.

Microsoft Outlook also supports nifty features like Play My emailsFAQ experience in the app, built-in support for iCS attachments, the ability to create an Outlook email account, and more. Microsoft will continue to add new features to Outlook through app updates, thereby making the app better.
