Another update is now available for Microsoft Launcher beta users on Android. Ticking the app up to versions 4.7.5, this release doesn't contain any new features. However, it does focus on bringing performance improvements, along with fixing several outstanding bugs.
By far, the most notable fix in this update is a correction for issues related to notification badge counts. You should also find that Microsoft Launcher crashes less and general performance is a little better. Here's a look at all of what's new in version 4.7.5:
- Fixed top crashes and App Not Responding Errors;
- Support applying icon pack over single custom-set icons;
- Adjustments to wallpaper settings experience;
- Fixed several badge count issues;
- Performance/memory/CPU improvements
It's certainly not as big as Microsoft Launcher's recent Cortana update, but smoothing out the experience is never a bad thing. If you're enrolled as a Microsoft Launcher beta tested, version 4.7.5 is available now from Google Play. If you aren't enrolled, you can sign up to become a beta tester now. These fixes should make their way to the release version of Microsoft Launcher before too long.
