Today, there have been two important news regarding the Microsoft Launcher.
First of, the Microsoft Launcher App has now been downloaded over 10 million times. While Microsoft has not shared any official numbers yet, the Google Play Store now shows that the app has between 10 and 50 million downloads.
The second news is a big beta update for the Launcher which comes with new features. Beta testers can now create folders within the app drawer. Furthermore, beta version 4.4 includes these new features:
- Enable creating folders in app drawer;
- Batch mode of apps on home screen and app drawer – long press menu;
- Enable/disable dock;
- Open app animation;
- Pill count improvements on Line, BBM, Instagram, Yammer, Textra, WhatsApp and more;
- Weather / Time widget refinement to mitigate weather refresh issue
The features which are now available to beta testers will probably make their way to the release version of the Microsoft Launcher quite soon.
