A Microsoft launcher may not convince you because of the design of the operating system on desktop computers. Today we have very good news for you because the new Microsoft Launcher is one of the best launchers we have tested for Android. It is now available to all users with an Android mobile with Nougat (7.0) or higher, without betas or tests in between. You can go to Google Play and install it right now on your Android, something that we highly recommend since it is a very interesting experience if you need to change the appearance of your interface.
Microsoft Launcher offers a careful and very complete design
On Android, there are hundreds of interesting launchers that offer different designs, gestures and options. Microsoft Launcher has not invented anything or revolutionized this sector, but it offers a well-worked application that you surely want to try.
Its interface is simple and it has a dark mode available that can be changed whenever you want. It offers a simple application drawer, with a very direct scroll and in which finding an app is simple. It also offers a news section and fixed widgets that are the soul of this launcher. It offers compatibility with Microsoft applications, so you can have the launcher configured with the same calendar or notes application as on the PC. The entire interface has an aggressive touch of corners with right angles that we do not usually see in other launchers.
In this news section or ‘Quick View,’ it has a QR code finder, voice access to indicate commands and the possibility of configuring this section as you like. But one of the things that we liked the most is the gesture that comes by default to perform a search. If you are in the main interface and swipe down you will open the search section and the keyboard will be displayed.
Instantly you can do a search on the Internet in a very simple way. This is not a panacea in Android launchers, but we can say that it works perfectly. The default search engine is Bing, but in the launcher settings, it can be quickly changed by Google.
Finally, we can highlight an advanced dock that allows deployment from the bottom area and that shows more applications or hidden folders. This same section allows you to enter the launcher settings, certain quick settings and modify the brightness of the device without twice lowering the notification bar. It is a really interesting shortcut that you will use more than the notification bar for convenience.
These are just some of the benefits of Microsoft Launcher, an application that has just been updated to version 6 and can now be downloaded without betas or tests. That does not throw back your name, because it has little to do with the design of Windows. It is a very careful Android launcher and it is worth downloading. Of course, it is free.
