  1. Default search engine changes to Bing automatically

    The default search engine switches to Bing automatically even though I have it set to Google. I do not want to use Bing. Stop shoving it down my throat, please.

  2. Search on home screen still does not search! It only opens Bing.com.

    Using the search bar on the home screen only brings up the Bing website with nothing in the search field. It has been this way on the last several builds making it less than useless.

  4. showing results

    Phone: OnePlus 8 Pro, Android 10, OxygenOS 10.5.11 IN11BA
    Issue: whenever I start typing in the search bar from MS launcher, automatically a certain number of search results are fetched. In the lower part of the screen, above the keyboard, a notification is shown , displaying "X search results have been found".
    it keeps staying there on top of other apps ,for a certain amount of time,no matter what I do.

  7. search settings are reset with every update

    why the search settings get reset with every update? This is extremely annoying. I can't believe a bug like that is still there or you ignore to fix it. with every update the search bar style goes to rectangular and search engine goes back to Bing.

  11. default web search widget opens up a blank bing page. it doesn't actually do the search, you need to type in your search term again. :(

    the search box widget the launcher just takes you to bing.com, it doesn't bother remembering whatever you attempted to search via the widget .

  13. Search widget failed to get file list from work account

    After inactivity (1-2 hours), when I return to the home screen from the lockscreen and begin typing in the Microsoft Launcher Search widget, it fails. Reverts back to the home screen, and says, "Failed to get file list from work account. Please try again later."
    It works immediately on retry.

    This is a new issue since migrating to the Android Work Profile for Microsoft.

  17. Bing keeps getting randomly set back as default search engine for search bar, and I have to change it to Google every time. ANNOYING.

    I change in the settings of the launcher's search bar the default search engine to Google, it stays for some time (days), but then randomly reverts back to Bing being the default search engine, it happened 3 times now. I thought at the beginning that it does that after every update, but now I'm not sure because according to Play Store the last time my apps were updated was 3 days ago, but the problem happened again just now, so it probably has nothing to do with updates. I hope this will be fixed soon because I can't stand it…

  18. When I use the default search box at the top of my 'Your Feed' - Edge just directs me to the Bing homepage, never searches my query.

    The search box at the top of my feed - anything I type doesn't direct me to search results it always re-directs me to the Bing homepage. I use Edge.
