Microsoft Launcher’s latest June update has caused significant issues for users, particularly those using a Surface Duo device.
Released on June 27, 2023, the update has generated numerous complaints from Reddit and Twitter users regarding malfunctions with Microsoft Launcher. While a variety of devices are experiencing problems, the Surface Duo appears to be the most affected, according to Windows Central. This seems to be linked to a recent system update.
Currently, the primary solution is to reset the launcher when prompted by the error message. However, some users have reported that this does not resolve the issue. This can be particularly problematic for Surface Duo users since it is their only launcher. If resetting does not work, they may need to customize their settings again. On the other hand, users of other phones can simply switch launchers when facing the error, saving them from additional hassle.
TechRadar has contacted Microsoft regarding this problem and will update this story with any response from the company.
Surface Duo users getting the short stick
Microsoft Launcher was initially released in 2015 as a beta version called Arrow Launcher. It was officially launched in 2017 for iOS and Android, aiming to enhance device accessibility across platforms.
Generally, it provides a seamless experience for users to integrate Windows PCs and smartphones, especially for devices like the Surface Duo, which offers a larger screen for better utilization of the feature.
However, the recent error experienced by Duo users emphasizes the need for them to have the ability to switch launchers like users of other phones. Those affected by the problem are currently troubleshooting while waiting for Microsoft to release a fix. It can be frustrating to have a functional device that requires constant resetting or customization.
Hopefully, Microsoft will address this issue promptly and provide alternative options for Duo users in the future.
