Microsoft today has pushed an update to the Microsoft Launcher beta on Android. Along with Cortana SMS dictation, the new version of the app also offers some improvements over the last version of the app. The version 4.13 of the app also brings Cortana to the Indian market. Although Indian users can access Cortana without having to install the update, it is good to have a native experience.

Below is the full changelog in case you want to take look at:

  • 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.
