      • Rounded corner animation for microphone icon

        When you tap on the icon of the microphone in search bar, the animation looks like a square shadow.It is better if it will have rounded corners, as search bar.

                        • Add shortcut to access Bing Saves from search bar.

                          When using the search bar it shows recent searches and apps. Can you also add a shortcut to access Bing Saves from there.

                            • search: the default search does include apps but the shortcut menu when you long press on it doesn't include any of it's shortcuts or widget

                              if you long press on an app in Android it now pops up some of it's shortcuts and widgets. I think Microsoft launcher already does this, just not in it's search yet (not talking about the app drawer search which has this already)

                                  • Remove the Arrow Name in the Search.

                                    When I search similar things like 'Settings' in the Search, it shows Arrow Settings. This launcher is no longer the Arrow launcher so I suggest remove Arrow Words. Some people don't know what Arrow is so it could be confusing for some people.

                                    • Add apps first in search and lauch first suggested app after hitting enter key on keyboard

                                      Like in evie launcher. When you swipe down and activate search include the local instaled apps first and add option to launch first suggested after hitting enter. I like your launcher but lack of this feature holds me back from switching to it.

                                      • Google Assistant to replace cortana for assistant in Microsoft Launcher

                                        Would like to be able to use a different assistant with Microsoft launcher instead of just Cortana especially for those who don't like Cortana. Plus Cortana requires a login where another assistant may already be logged in. Would like the option use Google Assistant, Alexa, or cortana in settings for voice search.
