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!

this was the sole reason I used OWA for Android and now that OWA for Android is gone, it's a glaring hole.
Android needs to be able to remove the shared view on the phone from outlook calendars. Currently, there is no way to remove a coworkers calendar from my Samsung GS8 if we share calendars in outlook. Please give the option to remove other employee calendars from our phones, similar to apple on the iphone.

it was on the old app, why did it get removed?

This is a must. It's really frustrating that this isn't currently possible in on - premises exchange.

As it is now, there is no support for Shared Calendars. To view a calendar shared with me, I must open a browser and sign into Outlook. What's the point of having Calendars on the app if you can't view all of them?

Vi kan ikke længere gemme inddaterede aftaler i vores shared calender

Outlook desktop and browser version lets me see my coworkers calendars. I cannot do that on Outlook (or OWA anymore). please please please get this feature.

It doesn't let me view the calendar shared with me.
I can't see calendars for other staff so setting meetings is an issue from the app
I cannot view my team or boss's calendar on my phone and have to log in online or go on my laptop. Please add shared calendars to the list of calendars you can view (currently only your own).
As I understand it this feature is already available on the iOS app. How can you justify having the ability on one platform and not on another, and even worse, having the feature for your own hosted servers but not privately hosted exchange servers!

helpful if it can integrate with Google calendar
Please support the categorization (color coding) of calendar entries on the app like in the desktop version. For me the categorization related to different jobs.

I already have permission to quite a few calendars within my company however I cannot see the calendars on my phone. I have been told that I can have the other person re-share their calendar with me and to accept it on the phone rather than in Outlook on my computer to be able to see it from my phone.

why can't I view shared calendars as I have permission on my desktop outlook already?
