  1. Applock with fingerprint

    Dark UI with fingerprint app lock option for every app user want to lock. This is a best feature for Microsoft launcher to be more popular. Please work with it and update it in the app.

  3. Darker dark theme

    I'd like to see a Darker more neutral gray for the dark theme. Similar to the Ms News app dark theme.

  4. Advanced Cortana

    , E. G. ' play Taylor Swift ' (Cortana chooses the default music app Spotify and plays Taylor Swift music :)

    Cortana could even play specific songs E. G. 'play All Too Well '

    You tell Cortana (in her settings) under music settings, that Spotify is my default music app, so whatever command you give it in terms of music wise, it opens Spotify or it could open up your default music player E. G
    Samsung Music

  5. Lockscreen personalization

    Changing content on the lockscreen would be amazing. Moving the clock to the bottom, making it bigger/smaller/ digital/analog? No problem, just do it!

  6. Cortana conversation mode

    Cortana on Launcher is not up to par with the Cortana app, especially in regards to conversation mode. The two need to be integrated or have a similar experience.

  7. Please, please give launcher the full Windows active tiles UI. It's the MS mobile signature loved by millions !

    The complete widows phone UI was awesome - don't loose it please. It's bad enough I have to retire my Lumia 930 for a Samsung S9+ ! ( Have to say the Samsung is a slick performer however). Come on guys make Launcher the complete Windows phone makeover.

  9. Please add an Auto-Rotate feature so the home screen can be horizontal or vertical depending on the way you hold your phone

    I believe it will use the phone sensor or camera to detect if the phone is vertical or horizontal then it will flip around to the way you are holding your phone ... my phone has it built in but it does not work with Microsoft Launcher

  11. Change Folder background color per folder like Samsung launcher so they stand out.

    Samsung's launcher allows you to change the folder's background to different colors. If you have multiple folders on your home screen, you can quickly pick out the one that you want by the color.

  16. The news feed desperately needs to be customizable. We should be able to choose sources. The current news feed is basically useless.

    The "News" under feed settings needs to be a clickable link that can bring up a menu where users can select the sources they wish to see show up on the news feed. There should still be topical feeds, but without the ability to choose sources, the news feed is basically useless since each user still needs to go to their sources to find the news they are interested in. More people would use the feature if more people could use the feature for what they want and care about.

  18. Icons search bar in icon packs.

    When i tap on a icon pack, a big list of icons are shown from that icon pack. The problem is that you can not search for icon related to "messaging" or "calls" you have to scroll for hours in search for the perfect icon.

    An search bar at the top of the page will be usefull.
