Microsoft Launcher update adds option to create folders in app drawer, more

Microsoft Launcher is bringing more new features to its users. After adding a host of improvements to the Android app last week, Microsoft is now delivering another update that includes some of the most requested features.

The most important addition to the Android launcher is the option to create folders in the app drawer. Also, the update brings the ability to select multiple items at the same time, across different pages.

The launcher now allows users to move, remove, drag & drop or even created new folders in home screen or app drawer through long press menu.

Furthermore, the developers confirmed they have added the option to enable and disable the dock. Basically, you'll be able to design your home screen without a dock, thus having more flexibility.

Some pill count improvements have been implemented for Line, BBM, Instagram, Yammer, Textra, WhatsApp and a few other apps. Finally, Weather / Time widget refinements have been made to remove the weather refresh issue.
