What you need to know

Launcher (beta) just got updated to version 6.211203.0.1025841.
This version update includes a few items, including a promo banner for those without the Start app.
Other items in the update are bug fixes, UX improvements, and the Rewards widgets now supporting Spain and Italy.

Heads up: A new version of Launcher (beta) is live, version 6.211203.0.1025841. It doesn’t pack anything in the way of major content, but it contains a few small items worth noting. Chiefly, a promotional banner was added to the News feed page for those who don’t have the Start app installed.

Beyond that, general bug fixes were included in the update, as were UX improvements. Also, the Rewards widgets now offer support for Spain and Italy. Here’s the official changelog:

Promotional banner was added on News feed page for users who don’t have Start app installed.
Rewards widgets now support Italy and Spain.
Other known bugs were fixed, and UX improvements were made on feed

In case you’re not familiar with the circumstances leading up to the inclusion of this new promotional banner, here’s the scoop: Earlier in January, a Launcher beta update removed the built-in News feed, seemingly in an effort to move people toward Microsoft’s Start app’s News widget. Now, is doubling down on its Start push with a promotional banner to remind people to give the app a shot.

That’s it for the Launcher update, though. There were no major features or overhauls this time around, but that could always change in the future, should run out of digital promotional banners.

This Android launcher plays ball with a number of Microsoft products, such as Microsoft To Do and Microsoft 365. In the latest update, expect a promotional banner as well as useful additions such as UX tweaks, bug fixes, and a little love for Spain and Italy.
