Microsoft has released an update for the beta version Microsoft Launcher for Android, taking it to version 4.10.

The update brings the following new features:

  • Introducing Visual Search. Use the camera function through the Launcher Search bar to capture images and intelligently recognize celebrities, landmarks, items, apparel and more!
  • Microsoft Rewards: Now Microsoft Rewards customers can see their Rewards balance in the Launcher Feed and earn points for using Bing Search through Microsoft Launcher!
  • Your family in Launcher: Parents with Microsoft Launcher can now view the last known location and activity report for their children across their Android phone, Windows PC and Xbox console!

Visual Search, in particular, sounds like a useful feature, but the other two features are also likely to appear to their specific demographic.

The Launcher app can be found in the Google Play store here.
