Hey, first of all, congratulations on the new update, I really like the new UI improvements, especially the new weather widget! I'm just gonna throw some graphical nitpicks to help you get the launcher in a perfect state:

- First of all, I really like the addition of search bar shape options, I was not a fan of the rounded searchbar and the return of the squared one really made me happy. However, the launcher should keep the choice consistent across all its sections. If I choose the squared searchbar, it should be squared in the feed page as well or in the search window

-Microphone icon in the searchbar. I know you wanted to stay in line with Android's design, but to be fair the main reason for which I like Microsoft Launcher is how it stands out from the other launchers and provides a Windows-like experience, so I'd like to see the old microphone icon back, or at least an option to pick our favorite icon. Segoe MDL2 Assets should be used as much as possible to keep the launcher consistent with the whole Microsoft ecosystem

-Glance and News have clear, blurred backgrounds, while Timeline has a dark, blurred background. You may want to make all of them consistent, with the same background

-Screen usage details page (the one you get when you tap on "More" in the Screen usage widget) should have a blurred background as well

-Settings gear icon in the weather widget should be the same of the other Launcher components, preferibly Segoe MDL2 Asset

That's it, keep up the good work!
