Add Splash Screen
Although the app itself is good. But it takes a while when loading for the first time and shows the blank interface. So it would be good to add a splash screen like the other Microsoft office apps, while the content keeps loading the background. It will please the users.
The splash screen shown while opening the app should have dark background if the app theme is set to dark.

If the splash screen must be present please have it match the theme (i.e. Light or Dark) of the phone. It is annoying that with my phone set to dark mode that I get blasted with an all white splash screen. This is especially true at night.
The splash screen really slow down the start up and sadly you got a delay there
When the application starts, the splash screen is on for very long before I can get to email. That needs to be drastically improved to no more than 2 seconds at best. The best solution would be to get rid of it

How do I disable the new splash screen when I open outlook? I find it useless, irritating and giving me no value and taking more time. Sorry about the rant but I really don’t like it!!

This is a ridiculous splash screen. Get rid of it
Seems to be a feature that was requested due to the background loading time on app launch.
I, too, am frustrated with the new splash screen.
I would think the solution is to shorten the loading time, NOT to cover it up with a blank splash screen as it has been done.
outlook recently introduced a loading splash screen which lengthens the time taken to utilise the app.
Productivity would be much improved if this is reverted.
Anything that hinders performance of opening the inbox, please turn it off or get rid of it. First launch after install, sure, I get it. Beyond that, just drop me to my inbox. I don’t need to see a bigger logo of the app icon I just tapped.

In the latest build of a look, I am seeing a splash screen every time I open the app. It’s obnoxious, and it slows down getting to my email. Please remove it.
