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.Outlook Lite is specifically designed for light-weight devices (devices with low storage, low RAM, or low Android versions (starting 5.1)).
