Microsoft Launcher 5.0 comes with Windows Timeline support
Back in early October, Microsoft Launcher 5.0 arrived as a Beta release for those adventurous enough to try it. Now, the stable version of this popular piece of code is rolling out to all Android users who want to get more out of their devices than the default launcher can provide.
Without further ado, these are the essential changes that Microsoft Launcher 5.0 delivers:
- Feed - updated navigation for Glance, News and Timeline tabs. Feed settings accessible from the top of the Feed
- News - Microsoft News-powered news experience
- Timeline on mobile - see activities from PC and phone on the Android device
- Cortana - send emails with multi-turn emailing
- Family - real-time kids' location tracking
With more than 10 million installs so far, Microsoft Launcher requires Android 4.2 Jelly Bean or later versions. It has 25 MB in size and holds an excellent rating of 4.6 stars on Google Play after being rated by over 730,000 users. A version for iOS is not available yet, if you were wondering.
