Microsoft Launcher Beta (Arrow)

Beta Update from 18 Aug 2018
From Google+ Community

Hey there Microsoft Launcher beta family! Thanks for continuing to be the earliest adopters of the Microsoft Launcher updates and continuing to file bugs/give feedback. We're working on some big things and these next few months are going to be exciting times!

I'm happy to share the latest beta release, Microsoft Launcher v4.13. Please continue to file bugs/give us feedback either through the app (using UserVoice) or on this community board!

Without further ado, here's what's new for 4.13.
-Now you can drag and drop widgets to and from the Launcher Feed. Widgets also no longer have card headers when placed in the Feed.
-Updates to the calendar card let you add a new event with one click when you no longer have any more events for the day.
-Tuning fixes for new app drawer animation.
-Parents can now ask Cortana for the location of their kids via voice (ex. "where are my kids?").
-Cortana can now read incoming SMS messages and now supports en-IN.

The beta build may need a couple of hours or a day to propagate before you will see it in your Google Play download link, depending on Google Play roll out progress, and please keep the feedback coming! Please know that even though we're unable to reply to every inquiry/bug/request, we're monitoring and collecting your feedback daily. As always, we thank you for your support.
