Microsoft has updated its Android app for the Outlook.com email service, adding the ability to sync your entire email history to your device and search for emails in the cloud.

The app’s search feature previously kept track of only the emails downloaded to your phone, but now it can communicate back with the Outlook server to let you look through your whole account. Alternatively, you could take advantage of the unlimited sync option in order to have all your emails available for offline access.

Other changes to the app include support for Outlook.com aliases, new color themes, vacation replies and the addition of traditional Chinese.
