Message Summary

This new Outlook for iOS and Android release will soon roll out the ability to pin messages on both platforms. After tapping the Pinned filter in the message list, all conversations will be easy to get to and keep track of.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 83043.

When this will happen

We will begin rolling this out to the Apple Store and Google Play Store in late May and be complete by mid-June.

How this will affect your organization

Outlook for iOS and Android will begin supporting the ability to pin conversations and view pinned conversations in the upcoming weeks. Users can pin or unpin conversations either through swipe actions in the message list or through mail actions by tapping the

Once an item has been pinned, it can be identified in the message list by its background color and the pinned icon. Users can easily access all their pinned items using the filter button at the top right corner of the message list.

These messages will show up at the top of the message list for other Outlook clients that support pin, such as Outlook on the web.

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
