  1. Reset frequency used app.

    I want feature to reset frequently used app. As with many days of use, if we install new app that I am going to use often, it will take number of days and click to show new app in the list. It will force me to use app drawer for those app.
    If I can reset app list. It can show up much quickly.

    • Allow Progressive Web Apps (Pwas) to appear in the frequently used apps page

      When a pwa is used by a browser multiple times it automatically pops up in the page, at the very least enable this for edge

      • Add a Launcher Settings option to remove Suggested Apps from the Bing Search screen

        Add a Launcher Settings option to remove Suggested Apps from the Bing Search screen when you pull it down with a gesture. I'd like the option to see all of my latest Bing Search results populate the whole page. The Suggested Apps are unnecessary clutter for me, and the option to shut the Suggested Apps portion off would be more helpful.

        • Frequently used apps integrated with app drawer

          They should work as one, the extended panel should just be the app drawer. When you tap "more" (or the last item, a drawer icon), I would like to get the list of all the apps not just the used ones. You would get one consistent list of apps insteed of two separated areas.

            It will be nice to be able to exclude some apps from Screen time count. My alarm clock is opened all the night (to can see the time on the black screen without touching the phone) and it's counted on screen time, but I'm not really using the phone.

                • to set whatsapp as default sms application.

                  I see it should be very useful. Most people use whatsapp rather than the default sms app.

                  • Allow hiding apps in suggested apps

                    Some apps turn up in my suggested apps that I don't want there. I want to long press that app icon and be able to choose “don't show in suggested apps“. I want to use this function and not have to rely on hiding apps from the system altogether.

                      • Most used apps widget

                        There should be a widget (2x4) maybe, which can be added to home screen and that widget should have 2 modes home and out, the widget should have apps that are most used in those locations.
                        When you walk out of the home and the Wi-Fi is disconnected it should have apps which you use on the go like maps, WhatsApp or any other app related to on the go profile.
                        When at home it would show the apps most used at home.
                        Much like HTC sense had back in the day.

                        • Allow hiding off apps from Frequently Used (drop-down from status bar)

                          When you drag down from the status bar, you get a small list (about 6-8) of Frequently used apps.

                          Allow hiding of apps
                          Allow completely disabling this information

                            • Pinned Apps Card for Feed

                              Essentially, it would be useful to be able to pin apps to a card in the feed. While the frequently used apps is okay, this allows for more customization and easier access to the apps you want. My idea for this feature is inspired by the pinned apps section on the Xbox Home.

                              • share via

                                Share Via that comes with android is weak. it rarely remembers that I want to share via Outlook to specific contacts, it defaults to message app, it lists other apps that I never use, etc. Andmade Share is old. so, replace it with something that can be customized and is more friendly to non google products

                                • please fix the airplane mode button to just turn it on or off instead of taking you to the connections screen to do the same thing.

                                  when you swipe up from the bottom it gives you a few options o e being airplane mode. when you toggle airplane mode from here it takes you to the connections window to turn it on or off. I'm suggesting you make it skip the connections window and just turn it ok on/off. should be a quick fix! thanks!

                                  • 最常用应用项,希望这个列表中出现的应用一部分进行位置固定,那一部分根据最近的使用情况变动

                                    常用应用单独作为一个页面,方便根据用户习惯自动展示常用的应用,但如果所有的“常用”应用在该页面都在变动的话,就不太方便用户点击了

                                    桌面应用很好,希望继续加油,
                                    希望精简下桌面设置项,逻辑有点混乱
                                    控制好内存占用和耗电

                                    • Option for frequently used apps to exclude those pinned in the home screen

                                      As it is now the list is useless to me, since it ends up being a list identical to my home screen.

                                      What I would love to see is the apps I frequently use that are not anyway pinned to my home screen. Now that could be truly useful, since right now I have to go search then alphabetically.

                                      • l would like to arrange my own home screen icons

                                        I am accustomed to having my home screen etc. set up the way "I" want it and have for years. It is "my" phone. It seems like little by little our "rights and privacy" are being taken away.
