Microsoft has updated its launcher for Android called ‘Microsoft Launcher’ to version 4.7 through the beta channel. This new update offers several new customizing features to users like custom daily wallpapers along with Bing daily wallpaper, wallpaper scrolling, badge notification, lock screen calendar notification, several UI enhancements, and more.

Microsoft Launcher is one of the best launchers for Android. It is completely free, simple, fast and handy for those who want things done fast on their Android phone. Also, it consumes very less memory and less battery.
