Microsoft have updated the Microsoft Launcher for the Surface Duo, plus they have also enabled Launcher beta support on the dual screen Duo. Previously the beta version was blocked on the Surface Duo.

The standard launcher is build 6.2.200902.91394 and has the following changes:

  • Updated app icons and font
  • Improved app folder layout and gesture support
  • Improved performance
  • Addressed known bugs

If you are enrolled in the Microsoft Launcher beta program the Surface Duo installs the beta which is version 6.2.200904.91704. The changes with this build are:

  • Home screen improvements
  • App Drawer improvements
  • Improvements for device configuration on fully managed devices
  • Timeline deprecation
  • Family parental control deprecation
  • General bug fixes and performance improvements.

As I was already enrolled in the beta program I have the beta version and noticed app groups now have coloured backgrounds.
