If you’re using the Microsoft Launcher on your Android phone, the latest version 5.9 is now out of beta for all users. The main change is that the Calendar icon will now always show the right date, and the icon itself has also been updated with a more simplistic look.

This update also brings a couple of bug fixes and performance improvements. You can check out the full changelog for the version below:

  • Live date update is now available on your original calendar app icon, and Microsoft Launcher calendar icon is also updated with a cleaner look.
  • General bug fixes on dock, wallpaper, calendar card, and performance improvements.

Along with Microsoft Edge and Your Phone Companion, the Microsoft Launcher is an essential app for Windows 10 users rocking Android phones. The app is getting new features at a regular pace, and you can also sign up for the beta version to get early access to new features.
