Let’s face it, Microsoft is reborn, somehow they have gone from mega evil scourge of the technosphere to an almost beloved company who is just providing you thoughtful experiences. Why? We think it’s because they’re not in front, however, with Windows and Office they have major platforms, so they can afford to sit back a bit and let others take the heat.
Microsoft’s latest touch of thoughtfulness is the additional of quick action customisation for the Outlook Android app. Notifications are one of the most powerful features of Android. The inclusion of quick actions into the notification allowing you to complete routine tasks right from the notification shade made the notifications all the more useful.
But what if you want to choose those quick actions? We’re not aware of any apps that provide that flexibility, until now. Traditionally you wither had preset action or depending on the context the app may offer different actions. Now in Outlook for Android, you can choose what features you want.
