Microsoft Launcher update is currently being rolled out for Android users and brings improvements such as opening the stream page in landscape mode and simultaneously with another app, time support screen, as well as the search for keywords in Office applications. Surface Duo is Microsoft’s first dual-screen Android smartphone, and it comes with a 360-degree hinge, with two separate OLED displays.

According to the Microsoft Launcher changelog on Google Play Store (first spotted by XDA-Developers), the update comes with firmware version 6.2.201102.92686. It is now being rolled out for Surface Duo in the United States and brings optimizations and bug fixes, shared by the report.

The update brings improvements to opening the feed page in landscape mode and simultaneously with another app on Surface Duo. It also gets a single-screen overview and screen time support on Microsoft’s foldable device. There are improvements to the flow of creating app groups through the context menu as well as to icon spacing and consistency in the app drawer. Users can now search by keywords in Office apps on the device.
