Microsoft has started rolling out another big update to its Android launcher, bringing a number of new features for beta testers to check out. Ticking the app up to version 4.4, the update adds the ability to create folders within the app drawer, multiple item selections on the home screen, and a few other notable improvements.
Here's a look at all of what's new in Microsoft Launcher beta version 4.4:
- 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
While no single feature may stand out for everyone, the combination makes this a pretty big update for anyone looking for more customization features at their fingertips. The ability to create folders in the app drawer alone comes as a welcome addition.
If you're enrolled as a Microsoft Launcher beta tester, you can pick up this update now on the Play Store. And if you aren't yet a beta tester, anyone can sign up to become one. These features will presumably make their way to the release version of the app before too long.
