Microsoft Launcher beta testers can now start getting their hands on a round of fresh fixes and improvements to the app. Like the last update, this one focuses a lot on smoothing out the experience with performance improvements and bug fixes. However, there are some additional improvements for Cortana, along with support for more languages when sorting the app drawer.
On the Cortana front, you can now use the integrated digital assistant to control device settings like WiFi, airplane mode, mobile data, and more. There's also Cortana Notebook integration for third-party skills.
Outside of Cortana, Russian, Japanese, and Korean language speakers will now be able to sort the app drawer using those languages. Of course, as most of these updates, there's an additional smattering of bug fixes and performance improvements across the board.
This update is headed out to beta testers now as version 4.7.6. However, the rollout appears to be moving rather slowly, so the update won't be available for all beta testers right away. Still, if you're enrolled as a tester, you can check for the latest version of Microsoft Launcher on Google Play now. Otherwise, you can sign up to become a beta tester or wait for the new features and fixes to make their way to the release version. Judging by the pace of previous updates, version 4.7.6 should make its way to everyone within the coming weeks.
