This October is two years since Microsoft will launch its own application launcher for our Android devices with Arrow Launcher, now this launcher is renewed with the full release of new features, new interface, and a name change.
Arrow Launcher is now Microsoft Launcher, a launcher whose key points are personalization, information, and synchronization with Windows 10. Microsoft wants to have much more presence on Android devices, and this launcher will be the perfect complement for its browser also announcing Edge for Android.
Microsoft Launcher will allow us to customize the wallpaper, add widgets, change theme colors, install icon packs, rename applications, hide applications and more.
It offers a great variety of customizable gestures to open the application drawer, block the screen, open the browser, access the configuration or access the open applications, to name a few examples.
Sliding into the desktop on the left, as in the Google Now Launcher, we will access your panel that shows us our most important information, such as news, events, documents, contacts, recent calls and more.
Its universal search allows us to search both the web and our mobile, search both web pages and our files, applications, documents, messages, etc.
Finally, and the most important feature is that if we log in with our Microsoft account our mobile will link to your computer with Windows 10. So from our PC we can access the photos and documents we have on our mobile, and send pages webs to our computer.
