        • Cortana Read Notifications

          I would like to have Cortana read my notifications out loud. It will be very helpful when I'm busy.

              • Make the tasks card support To Do's My Day feature

                The new integration with To Do is ok, but it is still lacking a couple of the features from the ToDo widget. Most notably the "My Day" feature.

                    • Time to leave

                      When a calendar appointment has an address, the Launcher will be able to work out how long to get there from phone's location. Show reminders to leave based on current traffic conditions at the home screen.

                      • Add notification dots through which we can reply to our messages from home screen itself.

                        If there is a message from any app it should be visible on home screen and we should be able to respond for that like reply for a Whatsapp message, I have been using this in Niagara launcher.

                          • the weather on the launcher should give us notifications of risks to our health, like UV rays, and constant rains, etc...

                            the weather on the launcher should give us notifications of important things that we should know about what's going on around us. Like UV rays, rains and etc. Some people are to busy and forget to look out the weather sometimes.

                            • An action and notification center like in Windows 10 Mobile, with toggles and notifications

                              Please, something like the old action center in Windows 10 Mobile would be great. The current dock is close, but I'd like it to be on the top and replace android's quick actions center, and include notifications as weel

                                it doesn't make any sense to achieve customisation of notification bar, we have to use some other app or launcher...so please provide an option for customisation notification bar like opacity, transparency/use images for notification bar's background, select colour option for currently using widget/app. thanks in advance.

                                • Tracking

                                  Extend the child tracking/location feature to consenting adults. Clearly the adult being tracked should have to agree. A subsequent feature would then bring Cortana into play. Example: "Mary has arrived home." Or "Mary seems to be at the grocery store if you forgot to put anything on the list."

                                      When long pressing an app with a notification, I would like to see what the notification is. Also, give the user the option to select a default calendar app.

                                      • Can Microsoft resolve issue of Notifications' sound not working for Android Oreo 8.1? Google is not able to solve.

                                        Notifications' sound frequently stopped working until restart of device. Can Microsoft resolve issue of Notifications' sound not working for Android Oreo 8.1? Google is not able to solve. Can it be part of Launcher?
