  3. Microsoft Launcher for Android gets UI and battery life improvements Unlike a standard Android launcher, Microsoft Launcher does look and feel quite different from standard Android. It comes with dark mode, organized apps menu, and a home screen to keep you up to date with services like Microsoft To Do, Outlook, Calendar and wallpapers from Bing. Microsoft Launcher for Android smartphones just got even better with a new update rolling out to everyone. The update was previously available for beta users and it has features such as screen time support on Surface Duo and fixes to the feed page in landscape mode. According to the changelog, Microsoft Launcher version 6.2.201202.9334 also includes work profile setup optimization. The tech giant noted that the update comes with “battery usage and performance improvements”. Microsoft Launcher January 2021 update changelog Performance and animation improvements. Fixes issues with the built-in icon pack. Fixes a bug that incorrectly launches shortcuts page when users swipe up on the screen. UI improvements for the app paddings in a folder. Adds support for an overview, screen time and app group creation flow via the context menu on Surface Duo. Microsoft Launcher is not an Android take on Windows 10 for phones. It doesn’t come with live tiles or a Start Menu, but it’s currently one of the best-rated apps on the Google Play, thanks to the features added by Microsoft in the last two years. One of which is custom transparency ‘Fluent Design’ blur effects, which looks great with both dark and light mode. In addition to Microsoft Launcher, Microsoft recently updated its Your Phone app with support for indicators (status bar) for all phones. As you can see in the above animation, this feature basically allows Android users to view their cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and music playback status directly from the desktop.

  4. Microsoft Launcher gets updated with screen time support for Surface Duo and more Microsoft has released a new update for Microsoft Launcher for Android users.

  5. Microsoft Launcher for Android Could Get Lock Screen Customization Microsoft Launcher for Android could soon get lock screen customization options, according to a hint dropped by Microsoft itself on the UserVoice feedback platform. A post requesting “lockscreen personalization” has been marked as completed by Microsoft, and as per German site DrWindows, this is in most of the cases living proof that the software giant completed development of the feature and gets ready to include it in stable releases. “Changing content on the lockscreen would be amazing. Moving the clock to the bottom, making it bigger/smaller/ digital/analog? No problem, just do it!” the feature request posted in September 2018 reads. Microsoft marked the request as completed on May 14. While Microsoft has remained completely tight-lipped on such improvements for Microsoft Launcher, bringing lock screen customization to its Android launcher isn’t necessarily a difficult thing to do.Enter Next Lock ScreenAnd this is mostly because the Redmond-based tech giant has already released a lock screen customization app called Next Lock Screen, so there’s a chance that this project could be resurrected and integrated into Microsoft Launcher. Next Lock Screen allows users to customize their lock screens with a custom unlock method, more notification options, and a personalized app launcher. Furthermore, Next Lock Screen allowed the creation of shortcuts for phone features like flashlight, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more, while also integrating a wallpaper changer and a weather widget with automatic updates. While this lock screen customization app has been more or less abandoned, some of its features would fit Microsoft Launcher like a glove, especially because they’re already available on the lock screen. MS Launcher, for instance, already comes with a weather widget and calendar support, a built-in wallpaper changer based on the Bing wallpaper of the day and more. It remains to be seen if lock screen customization is indeed something that makes its way to the stable version of the Microsoft Launcher, but all signs seem to be suggesting this is very likely to happen. The next major beta update could bring further evidence in this regard. Source
  6. Microsoft Launcher Preview brings back hidden apps and more Earlier this year, Microsoft released Microsoft Launcher Preview, a brand-new version of its Android home screen replacement that's expected to be in the Surface Duo. It's built on a completely new codebase, so while it has some new capabilities, like landscape mode support, it's missing a lot of what's available in the current stable version of the launcher. Today, Microsoft released a new update for those testing the Microsoft Launcher Preview, and it brings back some of the features in previous versions. Specifically, it's once again possible to hide apps from the app drawer, and the ability to select multiple apps at once has also been reinstated, making it easier to pin or remove multiple apps. Additionally, it's possible to pin specific widgets from the Feed to a new page, which lets you view that widget on the whole screen. The Play Store changelog also mentions the addition of Bing daily wallpapers, but that feature isn't actually new in this release. One thing that's still missing is the ability to backup and restore your Microsoft Launcher settings, despite the fact that the feature was spotted last month. It's still unclear when the new version of Microsoft Launcher will make its way to the general public. It should at least be ready for the launch of the Surface Duo, which is slated for this holiday season, though reports have claimed it could come as soon as this summer.

  8. Microsoft has released an update for the Microsoft Launcher app on Android —the update was rolled out to the beta users last month and is now rolling out to everyone. Taking the app to v5.9, the update brings an updated Microsoft calendar icon, which as per Microsoft is cleaner than the previous one. Also, with the latest update installed, you’ll get the live date update on the calendar app icon. You can take a look at the official changelog below. WHAT’S NEW The latest update is available for all the users and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Source
  9. Microsoft releases Launcher Preview, a pre-release version of the Microsoft Launcher Microsoft has steadily been rolling out new versions of its Android Launcher app for the past couple of years. In October, a system-wide dark theme was introduced through the beta version 5.10, and there have been reports that Cortana is to be removed from the launcher at some point in the future. In an effort to separately test major early access features that seem to be in store, Microsoft has now released a Launcher Preview app for Android users as well. Essentially, this will work out as an Alpha version of the Microsoft Launcher moving forward. Notably, Microsoft Launcher Preview has been built on a new codebase so as to enable the testing of new features such as landscape mode and a revamped dark theme without affecting users on the more stable versions. As such, it will not contain all capabilities offered through the primary Launcher app, but will instead focus on feedback gained from the usage of a variety of different features. An in-built feedback button serves to fulfill this purpose. For now, these are the primary capabilities on offer: Give your phone a new look Personalize your apps with custom icon packs, and use adaptive icons to give your phone a consistent look and feel. Enjoy Bing daily images as your wallpaper, or use your own photos. Dark Theme Microsoft Launcher supports Dark theme for your viewing pleasure. Select dark theme for comfort of use at night or in low light environments. This feature is compatible with Android phone’s dark mode settings. Landscape mode Microsoft Launcher supports horizontal orientation to enhance your viewing preference. Microsoft has also noted that as this is a pre-release version of what Microsoft Launcher may eventually shape up to be, there is no guarantee that a commercial version that resembles this one is released. From the looks of it, the next major release of the stable Launcher, version 6.0, will incorporate major new changes. As such, this app works as a beta version, albeit with a separate listing on the Play Store as opposed to previous releases. It remains to be seen whether users in the beta program for Microsoft Launcher will have to shift to Launcher Preview permanently to get access to early releases in the future. The current version of Microsoft Launcher Preview can be downloaded here, while the stable release can be obtained here.

  10. Latest Microsoft Launcher preview removes Timeline This week, Microsoft released an update to the beta version of its Launcher app on Android, and you'll find that the Timeline feature is no longer there, as spotted by Windows Latest. The changelog lists it as being deprecated, but it seems to be removed completely. The company warned of removing the feature earlier this year, so those that were a fan of it probably knew this was coming. Timeline is a feature that lets you keep track of, well, your timeline. You can look through your previous activities and pick up where you left off. That could be on a webpage in Edge, a document in Word, or in any third-party app that chose to integrate the feature. Presumably, not many Android apps used it though; if it were more popular, it wouldn't be going away. Windows Timeline is still there. Microsoft openly publishes lists of features that are being deprecated or removed, and Timeline isn't on either list. It's entirely possible that we'll hear about this when the next Windows 10 feature update rolls around. For now, you can still use Timeline if you're on the production version of the app. You can also use family parental controls, something else that's being removed in the beta. You can check out the app here, and if you're not on the beta yet, you can join through the Play Store on your device. Latest Microsoft Launcher preview removes Timeline
