  2. 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.

  3. 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

  6. 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

  7. Adaptive Icons

    The icons in MS Launcher are all circles, and I want the ability to change their shape and also to reshape legacy icons.

  8. Microsoft People

    Please introduce an Android version of the "People", "Calendar" and "Messaging" apps to complete the eco-system. Having just recently moved VERY RELUCTANTLY from my Lumia 950 I'm finding the lack of these three Apps is really hurting what was a seamless experience previously (and yes I know Calendar and Contact functionality is in the Outlook App but this cannot be used for messaging, calling or seamless integration with the rest of the phone).

  9. Allow calender page to show full month.

    Currently if you add a page that's just your calender, it only shows you events for this day. I want to be able to see the whole month.

  10. Can you please give us an option to always show ALL DAY EVENTS in the calendar feed.

    I use all day events to remind me of ongoing projects I am currently doing. I want to see them all the time. Can you give us a settings toggle to switch for people like me so the all day events are never hidden.

  15. Allow landscape mode for launcher

    Sometimes I will want to use my phone with an external keyboard for writing tasks or in the car as a "dashboard".
    While apps do run in landscape mode it's frustrating to switch to portrait when the phone is sideways, especially when driving. Picture, opening another app will always take me to portrait mode in which I have to browse the phone sideways as well.

  17. [Device] Night mode: lowering/removing blue component

    With the permissions the Launcher has, couldn't you implement such night mode where the blue component is removed or its intensity lowered?
