            • Lockscreen wallpaper

              The lockscreen wallpaper is not automatically updated.
              Only my home wallpaper is updated.
              If I set the wallpaper for both it is ok, but the next day home screen is updated and lockscreen keeps the old one.

                  • Adding a o365 account with company portal enrolled devices loop forever on Enroll page.

                    Tried adding o365 account to the launcher. However, the account is managed by intune, although the device is enrolled to intune, launcher loops forever asking to 'Enroll' to use this account

                            • When creating a backup, it says, "This will replace your earlier backup with a new backup." That is not true.

                              Why do you need to scare me like that? :)

                              Microsoft Launcher does NOT erase my previous backups on OneDrive, and I like it that way. I have lots of storage on OneDrive, so I want to keep an archive of all my past launcher backups. So, just don't say that you're going to replace my previous backup. That's not what happens when backing up to OneDrive.

                                • notification badge

                                  Noticing a 1 badge on my Instagram app even though I have no unread items in Instagram. I have tried restarting my phone, restarting Microsoft launcher, clearing data and cache on badgeProvider and instagram but to no avail. Ms laucher should either handle notifications better or provide user with the ability to clear badges for an app.

                                  • poor perf and frequent hangs with this latest build (4.5.0.39810)

                                    it's not just my imagination, either: Android keeps giving me warnings that Launcher is causing the phone to run slowly, use excessive battery, etc. This behavior started just recently.

                                      • Search takes forever after latest update

                                        Before I installed the latest beta update the search worked like a charm giving back instant results and suggestions. I used it frequently to start my apps. However, since the latest update the search goes on forever and I rather take two, three taps onto me to find and start an app manually because it's still a lot quicker.
                                        A restart of Microsoft Launcher could not resolve the problem.
                                        Please fix this ASAP as it is loads easier using the global search.

                                        • calendar fonts too large

                                          Version 4.5 beta has fixed most of the font and icon size issues. However calendar fonts are still too large and not equivalent with the font sizes for the rest of the screens. please make sure they are the same side as the other font sizes for people notes etc.
