If there was one thing Android didn’t need it would be another third-party launcher, but Microsoft seem to disagree and have come out with a new one rather surprisingly for a rival platform.

Called Arrow Launcher and currently under private beta, Microsoft has taken the launcher experience into their own hands on Android and it’s quite a clean and simple experience, with it resembling very closely to the Nokia Z launcher.

How to get the Microsoft Arrow Launcher

  1. Request to be added to the Arrow Launcher Beta Google+ community.
  2. Download the APK file and manually install Arrow Launcher.

It’s unclear Microsofts motives for creating the Arrow Launcher and whether they’ll use it in future to showcase their ecosystem apps, or whether it is purely just to get their name as a software developer in the Google Play Store.
