After a couple of weeks brewing with beta testers, Microsoft is rolling out Microsoft Launcher version 4.5 to everyone. There's no single standout feature included in this update, but it does bring a number of smaller tweaks that open up customization options for users.
Here's a look at all of what's new in Microsoft Launcher version 4.5:
- Let meeting attendees know you're running late from the calendar card.
- Employees whose enterprises leverage Microsoft Intune's data protection policies can now use the Microsoft Launcher for viewing corporate data.
- Adjust icon size in the app drawer, dock and home screen.
- Set wallpapers for home and lock screen ( 7.0+)
- Add blank pages in vertical mode;
- Recurring reminders;
- Oreo shortcuts creation;
One particularly nice change in this update is the ability to set wallpapers for the home and lock screens, which addresses a minor frustration from prior versions. If you're ready to check out all of what's new, you can grab Microsoft Launcher 4.5 on your Android device now from Google Play.
