Latest Microsoft Launcher update brings Cortana; adds more features

Microsoft Launcher (formerly Arrow Launcher) has been updated to bring support for additional languages, remote wiping, and now includes Cortana, bringing its offering inline with other popular Launchers such as Google's Pixel Launcher with Google Assistant and Samsung's TouchWiz with Bixby.

The update adds support for more languages including right to left languages such as Arabic, allows for easier sharing of the app through NFC or QR codes, the ability to search apps or contacts and pin them to the home screen, and if your phone gets stolen, you can now remotely wipe the device thanks to InTune integration.

These features were first added to the beta Launcher at the end of January, and now they have been added to the stable release.

Already present features include gesture customization and greater personalization through icon packs, themes, and accent colours. It also includes 'continue on PC' where you can take a picture on your phone and instantly see it on your Windows PC.
