View and edit shared calendars.
Hi Outlook users,
We’re excited to announce that the Outlook on Android application now supports shared calendars for Office365 and Outlook.com users!
If you already have a shared calendar, you’ll need to upgrade it so that it syncs to your mobile phone. It’s simple to do though: just ask the calendar owner to re-share the calendar to you, and then click the Accept button in the Outlook app. After accepting, you’ll be able to see the shared calendar on your mobile phone!
This feature is only available if both the calendar owner & the sharing recipient are hosted in Office365 or Outlook.com. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to the in-app support team by going to Settings > Help & Feedback> Contact Support and we’d be happy to help!
—The Outlook team

When my wife creates an event in her calendar, I would like for her to have the option to add it to my calendar also. I would like to receive a message saying my wife wants to add an event to my calendar and hit allow. Would like to assign different colors to events added by her and the kids. Group events maybe?

On the PC version I can see colleagues calendars at the side of my own which is beneficial for booking meetings etc. I can't even look at them on the phone version.

Agreed I would like to view calendars that have been shared with me while on the go.
I am able to create new calendars in web version of Outlook, but they are not accessible in the universal app - both on Android and in Windows 10 versions.
you need to think how homes need to share diaries. that was great about filters using Categories
a shared calender from another outlook account won't sync properly

We need to share a group calendar (in Outlook, and not anyone's primary calendar) across Win laptops and android phones. Is this now doable?

I really need access to my shared calendars on the go. This is a must for personal/executive assistants.
add quick access to calendar with separate icon so you dont need three four clicks to access it
