Hi everyone,

 

Microsoft Launcher 5.10 Beta is now available. We'd like to invite you to check out what's new and install the beta build and send your feedback our way!

 

What's New

  • Launcher theme can now follow your system theme on supported devices running Android 9 and above through the new System theme option in Launcher settings, and the dark theme is darker now to improve readability and make content easier on your eyes in the low-light condition.
  • General bug fixes and performance improvements.

 

To become a Microsoft Launcher Beta tester:

 

•  Go to https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.microsoft.launcher
•  Click "Become a tester". You'll see a confirmation "You are now a tester." 
Moving forward, you'll always get the latest Beta build when it's available, as long as Microsoft Launcher is running.

Well I haven't left a comment for quite a few beta versions, so:

 

1 Not good - the problem is still there whereby after a re-start of the phone when Settings>Home screen>Add new apps to home screen is ticked, sometimes it will fill up the 13 deliberately empty places on the three home screen pages with app icons, all of which are duplicates of app icons already either directly on the home screen or on folders on the home screen; so I then have to go through deleting 13 app icons - infuriating. When the add new apps to home screen option first appeared for me in a 5.9 update it did this after every re-start; now it is only happening on some re-starts ... which is an improvement, but not good enough.

 

2 Bad - despite your statement that you would review and change the change you made in how one switches between the three feed tabs, you have done nothing, and left it as the only way to change is with the bottom tab controls. I CANNOT STAND BOTTOM CONTROLS - they are, for me, awkward, literally painful to use given my disability, and I'm forever catching the Android navigation buttons when trying to use bottom controls (and vice versa). I simply don't use apps with bottom controls. For me it was perfect the way it was, unusable following the change. If you'd changed the tabs from top to bottom, but left it so that swipes anywhere below the top section with the search box swiped between the tabs, I could swipe higher up and ignore the bottom tab controls; but no - you had to remove BOTH old methods, leaving only the bottom tab controls, and making the feed completely unusable for me.

 

3 Bad - you improved touch response elsewhere to taps, drags and swipes, but you've done NOTHING in now many, many betas to improve the awful response to taps on the top left 'back' arrow on news feed story pages, leaving me having to do anything up to 6 taps on the back arrow to get back to the news feed page from one of the stories - most of my taps it just ignores.

 

4 Bad - you still have not put back the old settings option to set the folder appearance background to light or dark, especially for when using the transparent theme which now just causes 'dark' to be used, which is dreadful on my home screen background. Why did you remove that choice? You should be ADDING choices, not removing them. Nova Launcher, for folder background, gives choices of: (i) go with over all launcher theme, light or dark; (ii) choose light or dark separately from over all launcher theme setting; (iii) choose ANY colour at ANY transparency percentage. You removed the only choice; and what made you think dark would always be the better out of dark and light for when the transparent theme is selected?

 

Overall, after all the 5.7, 5.8, 5.9 and 5.10 releses Microsoft Launcher remains, for me, significantly worse than it was when I started with it.

 

I would make two general suggestions to the dev team:

 

First, when you are making a significant change to the UI, like moving the tab controls from top to bottom in the feed, you at least initially make it an option; and then you can use the telemetry you get to see whether everyone likes and uses it, or whether there are a significant number of users who  do not like it.

 

And secondly, when you get a number of people loudly asking for some change, you remember that (a) the kind of users who actually participate in forums like this are both a minority and atypical of average users; and (b) people who want some change make noise asking for it, whereas people happy with aspects of the program will mostly say nothing about those aspects as it mostly doesn't occur to them you're thinking of changing it until after you do. So when you change something a few people are asking for, you may actually be changing something that was one of the features that made a bunch of other people like the app.

@DavidGB Thanks for your feedback.

- For the first issue, it seems a bug, can you provide more detail, some screenshot will help a lot.

- For the Feed tab position feedback, our goal is helping user easier switch tabs, if it brings you mis-trigger other feature, pls help send some video to help us improve. 

- For news page, it is a new issue for us, and can you help us understand in which case it requires you click multi times to get back? As our test, even click through link in the news, one back button will get back to Launcher.

- For the Folder background setting feedback, we removed it to keep consistent with Theme for now, for your requirement to have more customization feature, it is in our backlog, pls keep tuned.

 

Also thanks for your suggestion for whole Launcher team, we appreciate it much and take it serious for each feedback. Please keep tuned.

So now the search bar widget is misaligned inside it's own window. If you place it on home screen and try to resize it, you can see that at the bottom there is extra blank space that can't be reduced. So if you put something below the search bar, it gets shifted down more and there is blank space between search bar and the thing below it.
Visitor
Some suggestions : 1) when you customize the search bar design to squared one, search bar on feed page should also be of squared design. But it's always rounded on feed page. 2) swiping between different tabs on feed page should be brought back. As @DavidGB also suggested, moving your thumb to the very bottom of the screen to switch tab is not friendly. If you wish to keep bottom tab buttons, atleast provide swiping option too..

are there any plans to integrate Microsoft launcher on android4work managed devices.

Using latest beta 5.10.1.55729 on Pixel 3 XL/Android 10. The frequent apps page used to not display apps that appear on the dock, which made sense and was a feature I liked. Now the frequent apps page seems to display all apps, even those on dock. This is when using frequent apps on its own page, not the frequent apps card in the glance feed.

@ABrokenStar  agree with everything you said. I can't understand why they took the swipe gesture away from the feed page. I'm still ticked off since they changed the font. I can't see the reason for beta testers when most if not all feedback is completely ignored..
