Microsoft Launcher updated with a bunch of new features

Microsoft has started rolling out the next big update for its Android launcher to consumers. Version of the Microsoft Launcher looks to include a bunch of new changes that will help with the overall usability and experience of the app:

  • Enable creating folders in app drawer;

  • Batch mode on home screen and app drawer - long press menu;

  • Enable/disable dock;

  • App launching animation;

  • Pill count improvements on Line, BBM, Instagram, Yammer, Textra, WhatsApp and more;

  • Weather / Time widget refinement to mitigate weather not refresh issue;

These features have been available to users in the beta program of the app for a while now so it's nice to finally see them become accessible to everyone.

Microsoft Launcher has been doing well since its release back in October of last year. The app has garnered a lot of positive feedback from consumers, amassing over 10 million downloads in the Google Play Store. With the release of this update, we can only expect it to get even better responses down the line.

Expect the update to land on your device soon or you can download Microsoft Launcher from the Google Play Store if you haven't already.
