New contact tab

Microsoft is also adding a new Contacts section to the application. The first time this feature appeared in the app was in February, but it has only started to reach a few users now. This tab will allow you to browse all contacts on your Android device when the app is connected.

When selecting a contact, the app will show the associated phone number and email address, along with business and home addresses. The app also allows you to send a text message quickly or call the chosen contact. The feature began to appear for some users with version 1.20091.79.0 of the app.

New design

In addition to the features mentioned above, Microsoft is also working on some changes to your application design. These changes are expected to reach users in the coming weeks and give a new look to the “Settings” and “My devices” menus.
