Support Compose AddIn on Mobile
According to this...
...Addins are only supported for message read, on mobile. Can we please have a MobileMessageReadCommandSurface ExtensionPoint, so that we may create an addin for message compose, on mobile.
I was really surprised when I realized that add-ins are unavailable in compose mode in mobile because I believe, even a novice developer should, that this is a MUST-HAVE feature and not an option waiting for votes to be implemented.
In my case, my add-in is heavily-based on COMPOSE mode, so it is completely useless in mobile devices where most of my clients are living!!
If only you didn't remove support of addins in the new OWA in mobile so we can have a workaround and wait, patiently, to get this implemented, but this way, I'm really not sure what to do..
In case user's voices are important to move this feature to "backlogging" or "under review", here my+3 votes

We maintain an add-in that, on desktop, has a rich and robust compose command surface. We've had this add-in for years.
During this time, we have seen the retiring of the OWA app in favor of the main Outlook Mobile app, as well as numerous redesigns of the Add-in store and menu, and where to enable add-ins.
And yet, here we are, YEARS later, and Compose mode is still not supported on mobile.
Microsoft, PLEASE add this feature! Users want feature parity between desktop and mobile, and if we can run compose add-ins on desktop and web, we should be able to run them on iOS and Android, too!

When add-ins were first introduced as "Agaves", the goal was to support the new web-first, cross-platform world. More than seven years later and you still can't build a compose email solution for mobile devices that millions use each day to...compose email. Stop counting votes and fill this stupid hole.

This is a must-have. Would love to hear about a timeline on this one too.
I guess the author means a MobileMessageComposeCommandSurface ExtensionPoint.
+3 for this request.

I'm excited for this as well. Once you are able to share, I look forward to hearing about a timeline for adding MessageComposeCommandSurface to the mobile API.
