Reviews From google play store

Pretty pleased with it, still can only have 1 Hotmail calendar on the phone, unless you use the outlook app, which means no integrated perks, which is odd as it works with Apple just fine. News feed is limited to broad subjects like SPORT, as if you like one you obviously like them all, rather than say picking one or two sports and a team or two. I love the ability to have very small icons and place them at half points in the grid, not just the fixed grid and padding widgets etc..

I've used MS launcher about year ago. It was smooth and responsive. Last update tooks 2 sec to load home screen, and 3-5 sec while opening app drawer. Signing out, resetting, reinstall, or select high performance mode didnt solve the problem. I guess the launcher does not stay in the background memory, but always loading every time I switch to it. Using troubleshooting feature, it said that the lag is not related with MS launcher. I'm using other four launcher but not experience this condition.

I love how it makes even the most low end of devices (like mine) look professionally streamlined. It has a distinct feel which reminds me of the Windows Mobile and Lumia X platforms from years ago. And I loved those. This is a definite must if you want a clean, simple to use yet elegant interface for your Android device.

Moved all of my app icons. Seems to have taken over my old user interface in order to make Microsoft apps more prominent. Ok if that's what you want, but if you like the way you navigate now I would not recommend it. This is suggested as an easy way to move files from phone to desktop and it is, but it also seems to kind of take over. I was a little shocked by what this app did.

I really love this launcher, but for some reason i give 1 Star because of this bug keep annoyed me, the wallpaper is fine until when i scroll up and open one app then close it, after closed the app my phone wallpaper turn to blank (solid black) or half wallpaper (My wallpaper + Half solid black). And to fix this i need to change the wallpaper but the same issue appear after i scroll up and open one app. Please be sure fix this as fast as possible! Im very desperate and need help for this issue.

Love this launcher but have a problem now, after last system update on my Sony Xperia Xz2 all wallpaper (whether Bing downloaded or private photo's) set through launcher itself, phone picture ap or Quickpic are completely blurred out. Similar to a full on Photoshop Gaussian blur . All is good when I use Nova Launcher or Xperia Home. Hope to get it sorted out. Review Update, uninstalled, reinstalled, works again, weird hey,

This is most definitely my favorite launcher out there. It adds very convenient features such as built-in cortana, notification icons for apps, easily uninstalling apps and much more. Looks very nice and has a great widget/news tab as well. I definitely recommend this, so glad I got it!

Brilliant layout with functionality that runs as smooth and elegantly as a five star hotel. I am a Linux fan at heart and normally shun Microsoft products. After installing the launcher however I decided to revaluate my position. This is an amazingly useful app. Beautiful to look at and buttery in operation. Very highly recommend!

I love the feature and keeps everything organized, but I don't understand why the app goes directly to the home page of the phone. shouldn't it go directly to the app settings? how do I access the app to change settings? Also at times the screen freezes. As well the search icon text bar is in the wrong place.

using a OnePlus 6T. the stock launcher is smooth, but some friends suggested I try the Microsoft Launcher. there's just something about it that's really clicking with me. I also love the size of the icons. I can have several icons on my main screen and not have it feel cluttered. also like the integration with the Microsoft apps like one note

Everything is great and amazing even works with my plugins but for crying out loud the news tab is annoying I see a story I'm interested in and it disappears and refreshes and it spoils it to the point I don't want to read any news would rather have this tab non existent than constantly getting peed off with it

I like this launcher the features are great it looks good and it's almost fully customisable, I say almost because because the bing wallpaper doesn't support xiaomi devices so although I can change my wallpaper every day it won't change my lock screen wallpaper. If the developer could fix this I'd gladly score a 5 star

I really like the launcher but it keeps freezing and the home page does not respond to touch input anymore. I have to either restart the phone to get it working again or I have to switch launchers and the touch input returns.

It's pretty beautiful app. That will organize your phone. You for sure experience the different taste of your every day phone job. It's really like it. It's really comfort and well designed.

Best launcher if you use Windows and want an easy way to keep the phone and PC in sync. One issue for me is that it sometimes freezes or slowly loads but works better when you set Android not to optimize it for battery.

Love this launcher, it is much better than any phone manufacturers one. Only giving 3 stars because it feels like the battery is draining much quicker on all my devices (2 phones, 1 tablet). I ended uninstalling it from my main device until this changes.

It's a really nice launcher! I like it just as much as Nova. It's got all the features I want, although I don't really use cortana. I use a lot of Microsoft products (outlook, todo, etc) and this connects to those nicely

I'm not sure if the Bing daily wallpaper slideshow has a specific time in which to refresh but it'd be great if the user could set a time he wanted the wallpaper to refresh daily e.g. 6am, 7am etc. For now the only way I get the wallpaper to refresh is by going to the wallpaper menu in the launcher settings

Hi, Latest update is having bug. Home screen & apps are appearing very slowly. Like this MS launcher, So Please fix it immediately to enjoy the launcher. Otherwise I have to go back to my old xos launcher. Thanks.

I have used this launcher for less than a year but I had problems, some reily rare times the launcher demands and doesn't set you so anithing before you log in. And that log in window keeps popping up every 5 seconds or so... In the home screen of your phone

Awesom .. inspired from microsoft ..i was use lumia 630 dual sim but it it will end of the agreement in dec 2019 so i purchesed new phone note 7 pro and install ms launcher ..its joy ..but it doesn't saport live icon as it was on ms lumia ..please slove this issu. ..otherwise thanks fir no adds disterbing launcher ..

Love it. Has been my go to launcher since switching from Lumia to Android. But it would be great to be able to add my workplace Outlook and Gmail accounts, so that I have sticky notes and Gmail calendar events shown up in the launcher.

Great app, though in recent updates, on both my s7 and S10+, the recently used app window doesn't scale correctly for some reason on startup and to get it to scale properly I have to reset the app a few times in settings. Please fix.

I like the overall layout and structure. Mostly, I find other launchers over complicated. This works well without too much customizing.

The app was pretty good & cool UI. Just add a little security like "App uninstall prevention" (for all installed apps) and "App Lock" (for all installed apps). Hoping for next update.

Looks good so far. Surely, I'm more interested in deeper integration, like contacts sync with outlook account, calendar etc. Also would like to see more customizations, especially oled-related (dark themes, icons etc)

Another update I am quite impressed I had alot of bugs in this launcher about month and a half ago Now it's quite smooth.but there is a .5 sec delay (like it freezes) When opening the search bar

1. There must be screenshot option in gesture control setting,specially for samsung phones. 2. When you lock your phone with double tap . Phone doesnt get unlocked with biometrics in samsung

Great launcher! I love the configurability of it, and glance view is the best for bringing all your most important information all together in one easy to read view.

GREAT. Now a days I am using the MICROSOFT LAUNCHER which is working smoothly and very fastly. I am operating this launcher with my Oppo Realme 1 device. I had been using some other launchers also. But I have chosen the Microsoft launcher only again.

Useful app. One suggestion for screen time is to be able to exclude different apps. If I'm using my phone for navigating in a car while driving, I don't think that should count.

Amazing app. It has a clean and neat look. It has no ads so far and totally customizable. Just what i was looking for. 5 stars

It works fine overall but there still are several issues. The most important is that there's no sound when the alarm goes off. The second, minor bug I would say, is that cortana doesn't respond to any entry several times in a row. In spite of these problems, performance an usability are great on my xiaomi mi Mix 3.

Good look like desktop ! I like microsoft launcher than other launchers , the android look like desktop. 🤳🏿🤳🏿🤳🏿🤳🏿😍😍 but one problem if you download apps on play store the apps launch on top of digital time on the top please check that misstake.😂😂

Give it dark background option, and let it reflect even in sms background and call log background it will make it unique. Then add list option to menu, it would make it better.

It's much better than my normal launcher. It's alot easier to use than the other ones and I can easily download the microsoft apps that I need.

Now I get this error all the time. "Your phone has just recovered from a serious error caused Microsoft Launcher. it is single recommended that you uninstall this app to make sure your phone return to a stable state." Please fix this issue. After this my default launcher will change back to the inbuilt one. Earlier I used to get this error every morning, but then I uninstalled Microsoft Launcher, hoping it would fix the issue. But now I get this error every time I open Microsoft Launcher.

This is actually a nice launcher. I was surprised. It's smooth, highly customizable, and well thought-out. It's very easy to figure out how to make changes to it. There are no overly-complicated menus that you constantly have to dive into to figure it out. The app grid allows you to see your wallpaper background the way Google and the other Play Store Launchers used to do. It's even compatible with customized icon packs. This launcher is actually great. I am glad I decided to try it. Kudos MS!

I've decided to edit review after using it for a couple of months. It runs very well however, after a week or more it gets unstable and had to reset it again. When it happens, everything goes black and you cannot do much to help it. To overcome this I for the first had to change my default launcher and clear the data of MS Launcher and launch it again. It ran about 16 days without crashing and again boom the 17th. It offers so few things as compared to its huge size. I hope it helps to improve..

I started with launchers like GO and Next. Then experimented with others like CM, Nova, so on. And by far this is the most professionally done. Not only customizable, but it's the launcher is literally tailored to you after connecting to Microsoft with your email. I keep trying others. But I always end up right back at this one. Great work as always from Microsoft. The only thing I suggest. More tailored at a glance, news, and timeline section.

Tried several launchers. The best by far for my Huawei tablet! It's also the only one that properly changed screen orientations with the dock consistently on the bottom.

Almost perfect. Except for dual app feature in mi phones. I can create dual apps through mi ui. The problem with Microsoft launcher is that every time i select an app i have to select again between the two versions of the app. Where as normally the dual apps of the same app are distinguished easily with a yellow dot on the 2nd one, and can be opened directly

I really like it! Small but really annoying bug though, it seems attaching pictures WhatsApp doesn't work! Please fix.

Makes up for the loss of Windows Phone. I like it. It is fast and works well for me, as I use Microsoft Services.

It's almost there. Little things such as the app drawer and settings not resetting after you exit. It's really almost there. It takes some customization to make it shine, but it's a beautiful app. Love the Glance view. My schedules and important tasks are a swipe away. Well done, Microsoft.

Been using it on and off for a while now. It's great for those tied into the Microsoft ecosystem i.e. heavy users of Windows 10 and Office 365. I love how I can access my sticky notes, tasks and documents right from the home screen. Although this app is full of nifty features it really lacks polish. The animations are janky, settings keep switching back to defaults, it lags even on high-end phones. The team should focus on improving these aspects of the experience before adding more features.

It is my go to custom Launcher for ages on my note 4 till I decide to update with Mi Note 7 pro. To my surprise baring few sluggish moment, I never face any bug as such in this clean simple Launcher. But now I can't say the same, cause it's quite buggy and one thing I noticed after giving permission thrice, regarding double tap to lock screen.. it still randomly stop abruptly and ask for permission again n again n again...

The app is Awesome. [SUGGESTION] for "Tasks-Widget" (I use as a page widget) : I would want the Feature to "reorder my tasks" I add (This will be a super help for me if it's taken to your next sprint, I love your Launcher). [Actual] : No way to manually reorder the items after adding task items. [Expected] : Ability to do the above.

This is the best launcher I have ever used. I could never think of such type of launcher really exists in play store. It has eveything gestures, it shows news, it also gives us time line, It also forecast weather report. I feel like I have a advanced phone. This launcher always surprise me. Thankyou microsoft. Keep going on.

Great improvement. I used it 3-4 years ago and suggested that they should bring Bing wallpaper into the launcher and I am surprised that they heard it and brought Bings wallpaper slideshow which changes everyday. The only thing I am concerned about now is it's bit laggy. Whenever I swipe or go to the menu or app drawer, it lags. The transition is not smooth as stock launcher (OnePlus in my case). Other than laggy response, everything is great and improved so much.

This is probably the best launcher you can ever ask for, and it is for free. For both casual and business users, it has a giant lot of functionalities that can make your lives easier, with highlights such as screen gestures and Feeds screen that can sync your account data. Customisation has been greatly improved the Arrow Launchers days, from Home screen and colour schemes down to folder shapes and icon packs. Now that the elaboration is over, here's a direct verdict: Get it right about now!

Microsoft Launcher features a sleek UI that's easy to navigate. Plenty of features and the daily bing wallpapers are a plus! Would recommend!

This is a smooth and straight forward launcher. It makes the Android experience very comfortable.

Excellent, Slick Launcher -- very cool look, easy personalizations, wallpaper, icon & widget management. Wish Microsoft would increase grid options, as well as make it compatible with more Icon Packs to allow users to apply Icon Packs across the board instead of one-by-one-by-one-by-one-by-one. 🤜🍍🤛 Been using Microsoft Launcher for many years, it's still my Default.

The customization level is great. I really have nothing to complain about so far. This is my 2nd phone with it. On a side note, i would love to have some MS pack with Launcher, Office apps, OneNote, OneDrive etc so i won't have to download/install so much.

Seems very promising! I really like the quicksettings from dock. Id like it if a long press openend the full settings menu for the icons in quicksettings. Also, when opening folders, the apps should be closer to the bottom and not square in the middle of the screen, so you don't have to shift hands of your device is big.. mine is. If you fix that I'll change to it full time!

Nice.. But... I I really like the look and the layout, but it has this one annoying drawback that I can not deal with. Seems that everytime an app updates it will remove it from the homepage. Some apps I use frequently also update frequently. I am tried of moving them every other day. I am uninstalling but will reinstall gladly if they fix this flaw.

Putting it in reduced animation mode makes it feel super quick. Really like the ability to use Bing from my home screen.

Very much would like to have the option to swipe left to get to the full app list, like windows phone. Would very much appreciate it if options to look more like windows phone were there.

After the latest update whenever I try unlocking my phone using my fingerprint scanner it shows 'Device Administrator Locked The Device' and then I have to unlock it by either Face Id or by the Pattern... I got to know that this launcher is the culprit when i saw others too complaining about it with other launchers in different mobiles. So, please fix it!

Fantastic launcher - snappy and stylish, the calendar, notes, and task integrations are great, and the app drawer is one of the best I've used. Gestures are also well designed. The only faults that I can point out are that launcher options don't adjust layout correctly between landscape/portrait, leaving areas hidden in landscape, and the search bar doesn't seem to reserve space on the home screen, and newly added app shortcuts will be placed below the widget instead of around it.

Almost (but not quite) as customizable as Nova Launcher, but still impressive, with some nice touches - a clean calendar widget that looks better than the Google calendar widget, and still allows you to connect to Google calendar directly; dock functionality that in my opinion is better than Nova's dock implementation; and a clean, minimalist, built-in clock/alarm/weather widget. The app drawer doesn't allow tabs like Nova does, but this is a minor quibble. Overall, well done.

Plz, fix an issue to move apps from one place to another. I mean to rearrange apps icon of their own desire or should have an option alphabatically and also create an option that can create a new folder in Apps drawer setting.

When viewing apps via MS Launcher, if I select a letter of the alphabet, I expect the view to display apps starting with that letter at the TOP of the screen. A recent update has changed that behavior. Now, if I touch "P", the view will show apps starting with some previous letter of the alphabet, like "F". I don't know who thought this was a clever idea. Otherwise, I enjoy using this launcher more than I do my phone's default.

One of the most intuitive and customizable launcher with a straightforward interface.

It's really versatile and easy to use, I use a Huawei and I was using the Huawei Android but when I switched to the Microsoft launcher, the UI looked so much better than it did before. I'm a huge fan of Microsoft and I use a Lumia for a while. I stopped using it because I couldn't ring people on messenger. No Google apps was also a huge problem. So I got an Android, I don't like Android much, I preferred windows phone os but looking at Microsoft partnering with Google does give me hope again.

Very smooth and nice customization options while maintaining a very sleek and almost professional look. Love this launcher.

I have used this app but every time after unlock main screen hide apps also appears on main screen which is not good. Help me to fix this problem.

I love this launcher becos it suits my personalization style. The reason I gave this 2 stars is becos of its unstable behavior, it suddenly crashed from time to time. Please fix this. Edit: downgraded to 1 star because it happens every time I reboot my phone, my wallpaper is being "forced zoom" . I feel frustrated that I have to readjust my wallpaper every time I restart my phone.

This App is So Wonderful, if you ever dare install it, you are hooked up and will never get out of it and install any other shabby launchers, your Phone turns into a pro-plus look. How can I say so that you can understand. 😀😀😀 I Have been using it for a year now and I can tell you this app is worth it. 💪💪💪😍😍😍 It seems you get all the planets in a single bowl and becomes an astronaut. Hey! Good job Microsoft.

I have used this launcher for a long time and was very happy with it, it had pretty much everything I wanted in a launcher. I now have a new samsung galaxy s10e and there appears to be a bug in the launcher. The Home Screen in settings is greyed out - if I change back to samsung launcher no problem, I even downloaded Evie Launcher and no problem there with settings. This problem is just with Microsoft (or Samsung) and needs to be fixed.

Love everything thing about this new and better launcher. I've tries this launcher many times in last 2 years but eventually switch back to old stock android look. But this time i think is the best launcher i:e ever tried to stick to for longer then stock android. Just couple of improvement and suggestions 1. Add gusture for screen shot. 2. Add volume control features by Cortana. 3. Remove right hand side alphabet sequence,it serves no purpose. Best of luck!

Once you use it, you will not like to switch back to your phone default launcher. I am having very good experience with Microsoft products on my android. I tried using this launcher on different phones and i feel that this works better on stock android phones. On other phones like Samsung and Mi, you will see very few options are enabled. For example in Samsung phone, if you lock your phone, you will see Samsung default theme not Microsoft launcher theme.

Haven't used it sorta but sorta have. App setup is better than the regular android popsicle layout hut that's only cause I'm more use to the swipe up and down versions of android I guess. Idk apps cool.

Nice experience .It has a very simple, convenient, stylish design but it had one thing missing that's an animated clock and weather indicator .I want something like cm launcher's animated clock. But something in a new way. Please improve it . I hope this review of mine will help you to be the one better than the best one.

Please provide adaptive Icons masking. New update messed it all up 1. The search bar has been shrunken and looks aweful. 2. The padding on the sides has been increased resulting in a horrible icon spacing. 3. It doesn't look more sleek like it used to be. Why do you want to imitate other Launchers? Now no point using this launcher over nova. I used this launcher cause it looked different and cool even though it had less option than others. All is gone.

Great launcher. Aesthetically clean. I really like how it looks and flows. The options for customization are great too. The time and weather widget is far superior to the default Samsung widget on the Galaxy S7 edge. Close integration with Windows 10 PC. Minus 1 star for the partially functioning app notification counter and Bing wallpaper pushiness. If I could go back in time, I would download the Microsoft launcher over the Nova launcher and buying Tesla unread.

Generally a good Launcher, especially if you want Microsoft stuff instead of Google stuff. I had some weird behavior from this Launcher when I upgraded to Android 10 - the gesture recognition went a bit berserk and I kept getting kicked out of Microsoft Launcher. Somehow this was solved by force quitting my phones built in Launcher and then opening the Google Play Store app.

Superb! It has almost all of the features that I'm looking for in a launcher. I'm so glad I've found it. Kudos to the team that made it. Thanks guys! Thanks Team Microsoft!

I've been using different kinds of launchers for the past years or 2. Trying to find the right one for my phone, like literally changing it almost every month. I think i got it, Microsoft Launcher's gonna stay on my phone until the next phone. This is really an "out of the box" launcher. I haven't even bought anything yet and its already perfect (well in my taste ya, not telling u how to live ur life so YA, u dew u 🦄)

Excellent launcher. The animations are smooth and it's a great experience overall.

Don't know what the developers are doing, but I'm having issues with the latest updates. They also appear to be quite frequent, so something is definitely up. However, after each update my settings are altered back to some arbitrary “default“. The biggest issue I have is the icon sizes; I can either have larger icons and small text, or large text and tiny icons. I've already dropped a star off my rating. Any more nonsense and it goes to 1 star and uninstalled.

Visually appealing, full of features, but heavy. Cortana is way behind of Google assistant. With Google assistant, you feel like you're talking to a real person. Cortana can't even setup a timer. If I couldn't find the right phrase to ask for it, even that's a shame. I remember my first use of every feature. It was so intuitive, simple and at the right time. That, I call an assistant.

Ms user for life this only seals the deal utilizing native Samsung UI streamlined with lite and concise pages no clutter for efficient on the go mobile operations. Then for productivity I use my MS Launcher with built in ms features, support, reliability, and security. Especially with the 2 step authentication secured with Ms authenticator. Oh man look out. Gonna try to get my android almost windows 10 without the OS. Stay tuned.

This app is really feature packed. An amazing piece of work. It's settings are quite exhaustive. There is something for everyone's taste and typing style. So far, I'm pretty pleased with the relevance of its suggestions, both as I type and swipe and make corrections. I like that I don't have to select the word to use upper / lower case options, but one problem I find is that long press on a word selects the whole text instead of the word. The clipboard is really cool. Thumbs up on both hands.

Launcher is good but need some upgrades like give more theme..there is only one theme.give more wallpaper and add some features otherwise it's good..

So far so good. Even though this launcher is made by Microsoft, it allows me to use Google as my primary search engine

Productivity-oriented. Keep it up. Also, that Icon provided for Calendar is brilliant; updates itself to indicate the Day. Intresting one. Tried certain other launchers, but to stay productive, this launcher app has been the best ally in this era of distractions and losing the sense of Screen Time spent otherwise spent as under-productive.

It's nice but i can't wait for the Microsoft duo. I've been tempted to build a custom aosp bundled with microsft productivity apps, ms launcher and no Google play. What i want to see most of all in ms launcher in the future is a smaller install package, even faster performance, and powershell core included with it.

I love it because it just adds an entirely different theme that not only looks better but also has featuees that are more efficient. Even for already existing features I think it's better because it's in the form of a Microsoft operating system which I love.

Easy to use. Very flexible and have a nice wallpapers. Smartphone looks like profesional person. Nice application

It gives me same great experience as htc sense UI. Many parameters can be modified. Well done!

I installed this application to get rid of Google search bar. It is more advanced than google launcher. Apps on the home page can be set like lego blocks such as 4*4 or 6*6 with the same icon size but proportional spacing. Google launcher prrovides only 4*6 in my marshmallow smartphone. Microsoft launcher has vibrant wallpapers. It is a light application and has news and reminders and pc connect. Google launcher only has news. Also an active launcher is the among last to be uninstalled. 😱

I really want to fully love it but it does have some minor problems that irk me a bit. 1: The notification badges don't show up for all of the emails that end up in my gmail and there aren't any settings to fix that. 2: I don't need or want an extra set of system shortcuts in the favorites bar near the bevel of my phone. I already have those near the top of my phone and it annoys me that I can't delete the extra set. Other than that, this launcher is practically perfect.

App drawer app text randomly cuts off. Custom calendar icon is really old looking. Cortana does not launch with microphone active. Hidden apps checkmark color is difficult to tell if selected, more contrast needed. Preview (left swipe home page) shows old calendars that have been deleted in the select calendars option.

Very well built and designed launcher. Yet I have a problem where the notification bar turns red and reads: "Microsoft Launcher" is using the mic. Meanwhile, whomever I talk to can't hear me. Your attention is appreciated.

I have the Amazon Moto G6+ which is fully unlocked and doesn't come with the Google launcher pre installed. It has the Moto launcher which I don't care for but it let me install this without any of the conflicts I had with other phones. I am a Microsoft user and love the integration I get with this.

I like this launcher a lot bt it's very buggy. Screens freeze up more than I would like.

notes in glance screen is not working. It is asking me to enable it, but when I click on enable, it is taking me to the app information page. Please try to fix this. It worked in the previous version, after updating only I'm having issue with it.

Edited 10/2/ feed selection is Still very limited of choices . I can do that with other apps..This can be 5 star but... Why is there no option to change the news feed to view sport teams, tech, mobile,.. I get a bunch of news feed saying the same thing over and over in the news feed list.i went into customizations but it's very limited there is nothing to customize, or should I go back to my previous launcher that actually let me customize and choose what to see on my news feed?
