Microsoft launcher for Android
Microsoft Launcher for Android
The Microsoft Garage project was originally started as the “Arrow Launcher”, but has since been renamed. The launcher has been heavily optimized for high performance and low battery consumption and therefore should work smoothly even on older devices. However, at least Android 5.0 is required.
On the Home screen, the Microsoft launcher displays an overview of the apps that have been used most recently, so the tedious search for your favorite app is no longer necessary. Microsoft promises that the app will continually learn from the user and thus always deliver better results.
History and contacts
By swiping left or right, you can switch to other home screens, where the most recently opened photos, videos, and downloads are listed, along with an overview of the most important contacts. They can also be called directly. An additional home screen can be activated through the settings where notes and reminders can be saved.
All installed apps are listed in alphabetical order, which can also be searched specifically by entering a keyword. Additionally, Microsoft Launcher is compatible with all available widgets, which are clearly displayed on one page.
Bing wallpapers, icon packs and more
Additional features include a quick launch bar with access to system functions such as airplane mode, WLAN, Bluetooth or brightness control, support for third-party icon packs and wallpapers Bing changing daily. If desired, the Microsoft launcher can also be linked to a PC, so that images and documents can be quickly transferred from the smartphone to the PC.
Conclusion:The Microsoft Launcher leaves a very good impression and is an attractive alternative to established apps like Nova Launcher or Pixel Launcher – mainly because it displays a lot of additional information and functions on the start screen.
