Microsoft Launcher app

Microsoft Launcher 5.2 Beta has been released for Android and it comes with a series of improvements. Latest beta update to Microsoft Launcher introduces several improvements, including the ability to access the Microsoft Rewards card. The changes included in the 5.2 beta release will be shipped to everyone soon.

According to the changelog, this update introduces non-full screen folders which offers a better experience when using the phone with one hand or if the device has a large screen. This is useful if your device’s display is larger than traditional phones as it allows you to access folders with just one hand.

The update also adds a Microsoft Rewards daily deal card which allows you to earn Rewards, but this feature isn’t accessible in all regions.

After installing today’s update, you can now long-press shortcuts on the home screen even when the homepage is locked.

Microsoft Launcher 5.2 beta uses system fonts to offer a user-friendly and consistent experience. That means the launcher won’t use its own fonts in order to provide a more seamless transition with the system fonts.

The new version of Microsoft Launcher is available for beta testers and the changes introduced in this release could be shipped to everyone soon.

SwiftKey improvements

In addition to a Microsoft Launcher, the company has also released a new beta version of SwiftKey with a new feature that enables incognito mode automatically. SwiftKey beta can now automatically detect when it should enable the incognito mode on your device.

Only beta users can access this feature and it will be shipped to everyone after Microsoft is sure about the reliability of the experience.
