    Outlook for Android app (on my Chromebook) opens email links within itself where it used to use a browser. (I'm just re-trying the app after leaving it a few months ago because of features that are in the web version were missing here.) Now that I'm back, email links are opening in the Outlook app instead of in a browser. My 'work day' is to scan my emails, click any links I want to followup on, then go to the browser and those 2-15 open tabs to continue.
    Now, I cannot.

    I'm glad Microsoft is recognizing Chromebooks. I still need to print an email occassionally. As a PDF is a workaround, acceptable, but directly printing is more desired.

    Even if you add the abilities the online Outlook.com has would help a lot.

    Even if you just added what's available in the online Outlook.com, that would be very helpful.

    This was fixed, but the got 'broke' again and cannot scroll the message being read in the right pane using two fingers. It appears the last two updates of the app 'broke' it again. :(

    I can scroll the left pane, the list of messages, up and down with my touchpad, but I cannot do the same with long messages that are displayed in the right pane; I have to reach for my touchscreen to scroll the messages. OR connect a mouse.
    I am using Android apps on a Chromebook. I have noticed many apps are not 'touchpad friendly'--which I understand since they were originally built for smartphones and not laptops. I hope this changes in the near future to accomodate touchpad input devices more effectively. Thank you.

    When I select a message in the left pane in Mail in Landscape mode so it displays in the right pane, I have no 'indicator' on the left pane of which email is being displayed/has been opened. In Windows 10, the message on the left is 'highlighted', it's background is a different shade than the rest of the emails. Can that happen for Android as well?
    This is especially helpful when one is scrolling though a list of emails so they can see where they are at (meaning knowing when they have scrolled the list back to view the one that is displayed on the right).

    When in Landscape mode showing two panes, it would be great If you could just make the background color of the selected message in the left pane to be different than the rest of the messages there to allow us to more easily see which message has been opened, is displayed in the right pane.
    It's a 'pain' to compare the "Subject:" lines of the messages on the left with the message displayed on the right, especially if you haved scrolled through your messages. I consider this a 'time waster' as it is eating up my time.
    Thank you.

    It appears that if I swipe even 1/8" it is enough to trigger the swipe. This can happen just moving you finger up to the side a bit. On Windows 10 it feels like you have to Swipe at least half way for the action to take; if you only went 1/4 of the way, it would not trigger. Thanks.
