The Android crowd is finally getting some love from Microsoft’s Outlook team.

Microsoft is bringing an Outlook Web App (OWA) to Android, the company announced today. The upcoming app will bring Android in line with iOS and Windows Phone, which both have native OWA apps.

Microsoft already offers an Outlook.com app for Android, but OWA is the cloud version of Office’s Outlook desktop application, explained a Microsoft representative. In other words, employees of businesses using Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud service will soon be able to use the app on their Android phones.

OWA provides access to companies’ internal email, calendars, contacts, tasks, documents, and a host of other items.
