Today we're releasing a Microsoft Launcher "Preview" to the Google Play Store. You can call it an "alpha" version if you will. This version is a Microsoft Launcher that's built on an improved codebase and has several new features that we're looking at bringing to market (plus perf benefits!). Some of these features (like landscape mode) are very core to the Launcher experience so we're looking to get early feedback from brave fans that are OK with installing a potentially unstable version on their phones. You can file bugs through the app itself or you can share here!
