Using Microsoft Launcher on Android

Applies to: Mobile Device

What is Microsoft Launcher?

Microsoft Launcher provides a new home screen experience that empowers you to be more productive across all your devices. Microsoft Launcher is highly customizable, allowing you to organize everything on your phone. Your personalized feed makes it easy to view your calendar, to do lists, and Sticky Notes on the go. When you set up Microsoft Launcher as your new home screen, you can either start fresh with your favorite apps or import your current home screen layout.  

 

Android Work Profile


What is Android Work Profile?
Android Work Profile (AWP) is the new Android Enterprise feature that keeps your phone’s personal information private and separate from work, while offering secure access to your work resources—all on one device.

How does it impact Microsoft Launcher?
Since the work profile keeps your personal and work information separate, you'll no longer see a blended view of work and personal data in the Feed page.

As a workaround, you can install/download Microsoft Launcher from the managed Google play store and sign in with your work (AAD) account. Then you'll be able to switch between your personal and work accounts by tapping your avatar and selecting which feed you'd like to view.
