Microsoft Launcher for Android is getting yet another big update for beta users and it comes with a couple of new features. The updated version of Microsoft Launcher is 4.13 and you can download it if you’re part of the beta program.

You can find the changelog below:

  • Now you can drag and drop widgets to and from the Launcher Feed. Widgets also no longer have card headers when placed in the Feed.
  • Updates to the calendar card let you add a new event with one click when you no longer have any more events for the day.
  • Tuning fixes for new app drawer animation.
  • Parents can now ask Cortana for the location of their kids via voice (ex. “where are my kids?”)
  • Cortana can now read incoming SMS messages and now supports en-IN.

“With a Microsoft account or work/school account, you can access your calendar, documents, and recent activities in your personalized feed. You can even open photos, docs and webpages on your Windows PC* to be productive across all your devices,” the Play Store description of Microsoft Launcher reads.

    Reading the text messages is a very nice extra feature for me.
