This month’s version of Launcher comes with a new feature we’re calling App mode. With App mode, you’ll be able to set up web shortcuts to feel like an app shortcut: They’ll open in a dedicated browser window and in full screen.
Along with our usual tweaks, improvements, and bug fixes, we’re also excited to announce that we’ve introduced Italian to our list of supported languages.
Functionality, features and improvements
- New functionality | All web links can now be App mode enabled. When turned on, your web shortcuts will open in their dedicate browser window and they’ll open in full screen, making them feel like an application.
- New language | We’ve added Italian to our list of supported languages.
