General News Outlook Android app update introduces ability to block external images
Advertisement
#1

Microsoft’s Outlook app on Android has just received a new update. This update adds a new feature, which will allow users to block external images that are included in emails. The size of the update is not as big as one might expect it to be. But the update is important nonetheless, because it helps protect user’s privacy, and stop the tracking of whether a mail has been read or not.

This new feature can be accessed by the users by tapping on the settings icon in the hamburger menu button. Follow this up by selecting the account that the user wants to activate this feature on. Though users should take note that this feature is not going to block images that are sent as attachments embedded in the email. The official update log is small, and basically says the same thing –

You can choose to block external images in emails. Turn this on by going to Settings and tapping on the account where you’d like it enabled.

All of our weekly updates also include performance improvements and bug fixes to make Outlook better for you

Gmail has been showing images in mails as a default function for years now, but the way it handles all the privacy concerns around it is by using proxy servers.

Besides this new feature the update also includes the regular performance fixes and bug fixes, which can go a long way in preventing some unexpected incidents when using the app. On previous occasions we have seen Outlook update introduce a new search experience along with a navigation bar.
