Notifications in Outlook to obtain Outlook for iOS and Android on mobile devices

MC207028, Stay Informed, Published date: Mar 19, 2020

FROM MICROSOFT CORPORATION

Beginning at the end of March, Microsoft will start to notify users in Outlook that they can get Outlook for iOS and Android on their mobile device.

This change does not apply in the European Union, European Economic Area, and certain other locations and for customers subscribed to government and education Office 365 and Microsoft 365 plans. If your tenant is included in that list, then you may safely disregard this message.

With deep integration across OneDrive, Teams and Office apps, Outlook is the best way to experience Office 365 on a mobile device. Outlook mobile integrates Microsoft 365 enterprise-grade security to protect company data for a mobile workforce with built in protection against viruses, spam, phishing attacks and other threats. Many customers are not aware they can get additional functionality and commercial use rights to Outlook mobile as part of their Office 365 and Microsoft 365 services at no extra cost.How does this change affect me?

Users who use Outlook with their work or school accounts but are not using Outlook mobile may soon see a notice that they can get Outlook for their phone. If they dismiss the notice or start to use Outlook mobile, the notification will not reappear. A quick link will be provided to simplify downloading the app to the mobile device of their choice.What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

If you prefer that users in your organization do not see notifications about Outlook mobile in Outlook for Window and on the web, you can complete this form to submit your request. You will need to provide your tenant ID. Requests will take 7 days to take effect.
