I think it's the first time that I used the modern UI appellation instead of Metro in a post. The update for the Hotmail app does bring a host of much needed features to the app. Besides the introduction of the modern UI on Android platform instead of the Holo UI, the key features include:
- Get emails right away with push notifications
- Sync with your device Calendar and Contacts
- View and sync standard and custom folders, including subfolders
- Group your email conversations with Conversation Threading
- Send, receive, and view photos and other attachments
- Easy to use search functionality
- Use with multiple Outlook.com accounts
All contents and rules are automatically moved to the new Inbox and you can keep using the Hotmail account alongside the Outlook.com one.
Download the update on Google Play Store.
