Once you start using Microsoft Launcher on your Android, you realize how difficult it is to replace it with another launcher. And believe it or not, some of us here at The Windows Club use Microsoft Launcher on their Google Pixel!
Whether or not one should replace the default Google Pixel launcher with Microsoft launcher is a debate for some other time. For now, let’s see everything that’s new with Microsoft Launcher v6.
The best part, Microsoft continues to push updates in a timely manner, ensuring that the launcher itself remains up-to-date and bug-free.
