  1. 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

    • Utilize Quickstep API on recent Android Pie builds (rooted users and OEMs only)

      On recent versions of Android Pie, there is an API called Quickstep that essentially enables the integration of a search bar, your five most recently used apps, and the ability to pull up on those five icons to access your app drawer while in recents. Well, Google recently opened up this API to OEMs so they can ship their own launcher with this ability. Why not do this on devices that ship with this launcher (if there are any)? Also rooted users can access this feature. It would take a bit of work, and maybe a Magisk module, but Microsoft…

        • Landscape Mode

          I would love to a landscape orientation for this launcher, I'm already loving it, but it would be even more awesome if it can have a landscape orientation, so if I have my phone sideways, and have to go to the home screen, I won't have to flip my phone back to the portrait orientation. It keeps the flow going and in some ways, I find it better to use my phone in landscape mode than portrait mode unless I have to pull my phone out quickly or to make a quick message or make a call, but still!

              • Deberían incluir también la pantalla de bloqueo, seria complementario para finalizar la personalización y si se puede el menú desplegable

                Pantalla de bloqueo y menú desplegable parte del launcher para la personalización completa ya que solo ahorita solo se ve el cambio en el inicio

                  • Better Animations

                    The current homescreen animations are pretty basic and ugly. Please allow us to either use the manufactures default animations or fine tune the current animations.

                              • lock Apps, MS Gallery, MS file manager

                                adding a feature to lock certain apps with a passcode or fingerprint will be tremendously beneficial to users, in addition Microsoft didn't create neither a gallery app for Android till now nor a file manager, adding this feature like a file manager linked to OneDrive and GDrive. And an app on Windows PC to view those files through local WiFi network will be even greater. I think it's a good idea and will grab more users to Microsoft

                                • wouldn't it be great idea to have a app only select the exact apps you need for what you do and rids itself of all the useless garbage aps

                                  well you'd need to create a smart app a app that has permission to change up apps especially if they are chaotic once together.

                                      • add internet speed indicator, offical Microsoft music player, screen shot with screen recording

                                        everything is working fine.. I thought internet speed indicator, offical music player and screen shot with screen recording is lacking ... that will be appreciated if I see this things in coming updates

                                        • Allows the use of other applications

                                          As an Android user, I have always used my own applications for everything (one app for calendar, another for news) It is very nice to see the Microsoft Launcher, but it is not so nice to recreate my calendar and my other preferences, I would like them to be easily transferred to Microsoft Apps or allow me to use another apps, i now that Microsoft Have awesome things, but i have preferences like other users, thanks for read :D
