Microsoft is integrating its To-Do and Sticky Notes services into Microsoft Launcher with the latest update on Android. The latest major update for the launcher, version 5.1, introduces a couple of new features.

The standout feature here is obviously the Microsoft To-Do and Sticky Notes integration. Microsoft Launcher’s Notes card now displays notes from Sticky Notes, which is also available through the OneNote app as well as Windows 10. The To Do card for the launcher now shows tasks from Microsoft To-Do, as well as Outlook and Skype.

Another major feature coming with today’s update is the ability to track your screen time. Microsoft Launcher now includes a couple of Digital Health focused features like tracking your screen time, app usage, and the number of phone unlocks through the new screen time card.

Cortana integration is also getting improved with Microsoft Launcher 5.1, with the Cortana card now display more information like traffic updates and multi-commitments. Microsoft is also introducing Hey Cortana hotword support for users in the United States.

The update is available to Microsoft Launcher’s beta users, and it will likely make its way to more users later on.
