MC400566 (Updated) General Availability of Outlook Lite for Android Outlook Lite is specifically designed for light-weight devices (devices with low storage, low RAM, or low Android versions (starting 5.1)). It is supported on all networks. The app maintains much of the core functionality of Outlook but has some limitations as highlighted above in the first section. We recommend users continue using the existing Outlook Android app for the best enterprise experience on devices that support it.

We are announcing the upcoming release of Connected Templates with Microsoft Teams and SharePoint. The connected templates will offer a new way of combining Microsoft Teams templates with SharePoint templates. Prior to this integration, clients needed to deploy Microsoft Teams or SharePoint-specific templates.

SharePoint templates offer a straightforward way for admins to build sites with pre-populated pages, page templates, news post templates, and web parts that can be customized to fit the needs of their organization.

Through this integration, Teams administrators can create templates that include SharePoint components, bringing together the capabilities of the Teams and SharePoint templates.
