Android users can now grab the rebranded Microsoft Launcher

It was only a week ago that Microsoft rebranded the Arrow Launcher on Android to Microsoft Launcher and put it in preview. Now, the company is officially making it available to all users today.

While many of the changes revolve around making it look more apart of Windows 10, there are a couple of new features. Most prominently is the Continue on PC addition, which allows Android users to copy link and photos over to their PCs. There is also the ability to pin contacts to your phone's home screen.

Other features include:

  • The ability to customize wallpaper, theme and accent colors, icon packs, and gestures.
  • At a glance items such as news, calendar events, docs, and contacts in a personalized feed.
  • One-stop universal search bar that covers the internet and your phone.
  • Gesture customization, such as double tap to lock your phone, or swipe up for app drawer.

If you were previously using the Arrow Launcher, you will get the new update automatically through the Google Play Store. Microsoft released Edge for Android to the store earlier today.
