Microsoft Launcher update adds important Cortana improvements
Microsoft didn't entirely drop Cortana, or at least not when it comes to its integration in the Android launcher that it's developing. As such, the latest update for Microsoft Launcher focuses on Cortana improvements, but also adds some visual changes a well.

If you're using Microsoft Launcher and its Cortana-related features, you'll be pleased to know that the conversation experience has been considerably enhanced. The changes are meant to align Microsoft Launcher to the experience Cortana offers on other platforms.

Starting with the latest update, Microsoft Launcher users will be able to engage in a multi-prompt conversation with Cortana for various tasks, as opposed to single queries and responses. The improvements are only available for the English US language, at least for the moment.

Apart from these Cortana-related improvements, the update tweaks the layout of the app, such as the feeds tabs, which have been moved to the bottom for easy access. Also, the icon drag & drop experience on the home screen has been improved.
