Frequently asked questions
Why are there two mobile Outlook apps for groups?
We're bringing Office 365 Groups to all Outlook clients so customers can take advantage of groups features no matter where they are or what they're using to access their email, calendar, and groups. The Outlook Groups mobile app is still the full-featured app for groups; the addition of groups in the Outlook mobile app is the first step toward deeper integration for those customers who don't want to switch between apps for mail, calendar, and group activities. See How is Outlook Groups different from Outlook Mail on my phone? for a comparison of available groups features.
Is the Outlook Groups mobile app going away?
No. We'll continue to support the Outlook Groups mobile app for those customers who rely on full groups capability on their mobile devices.
Where do I get the Outlook mobile app?
You can find the Outlook mobile app in your device's app store.
How do I delete a conversation?
You can't delete a conversation from the group mailbox unless you're the owner of the group or the conversation. Deleting conversations from the group mailbox is possible in Outlook 2016 and Outlook on the web. If a copy of the conversation went to your personal inbox, you can delete the copy. The owner of the group determines whether copies are delivered to member inboxes.
