  • Microsoft Launcher received a small update for the beta and public versions of the app.
  • The update brings support for "live date update" for calendar icons.
  • The feature works with the Microsoft Launcher calendar icon and some other calendar app icons.

A small update is rolling out for Microsoft Launcher. Both the beta and publicly released versions of the app have a changelog for version 5.9.0. In addition to bug fixes, the update brings support for live date updates for calendar icons. The feature is supported by the Microsoft Launcher calendar icon as well as some other calendar icons.

Live date update changes the date that's displayed on your calendar application. For example, I applied the new feature to my phone today, and the icon shows today's date. It's a handy way to check what day it is quickly.
