Microsoft on Tuesday launched a new feature for cricket fans in India. Users of its Microsoft Launcher on Android devices can now stay updated with the live cricket action on their phone’s homescreen.

This widget allows cricket fans to stay updated with the latest action without having to toggle between multiple web tabs. The Microsoft Launcher updates the scores automatically and gets live cricket scores as soon as a user unlocks their phone.

Microsoft allows you to customise the widget by selecting the teams you follow. Users can also view live scores of multiple matches at the same time, right from the home screen.

This free launcher app for Android devices gives detailed customisation options. It also offers a personalised feed to users for all the important events, top news, recent activities, favourite people and most frequently used apps.
