  1. It would be nice to see all of my emails from from all of my accounts show up under the recent activities card.

    The recent activities card only shows emails from the one account I am signed into the launcher with. I imagine that this feature would be similar to the Calendar card, which has the ability to show all of my appointments over all of my accounts.

  2. It would be nice to see group SMS messages show up in the Recent Activities card.

    I already see SMS messages from single recipients. But I would imagine it would look the same but only for group SMS messages

  4. Wire support

    Wire is currently the go-to OOS chat app for encrypted messaging. Can't really trust WhatsApp or WeChat. A little suspicious of Telegram. But Wire is fully open source so everyone knows what's going on.

    Would be great to natively support it in the Microsoft Launcher experience!

  9. Add gesture to show recent apps

    Hi on my phone the Recent Apps navbar button is pretty far away from my finger.
    It would be nice to have the ability to assign a gesture to open android recent apps view.

  11. Manually changed icon... Not showing in frequently used apps... In the dashboard of the main screen.

    I like customizing icons using icon packs.... But for few apps I need to change icons manually if the custom icon for that perticular app is not present in the icon pack...... But that dose not reflect in the frequent apps section. :(

  19. Mensagens WhatsApp nas atividades recentes

    Acho desnecessário o resumo de quantas mensagens tem e quantas conversas tem do WhatsApp, sendo que já aparece a conversa individual de cada contato. Assim fica muito poluído e o ícone do whats em baixa resolução fica horrível
