How to Turn On or Off Timeline in Microsoft Launcher app on Android Phone


Since April 2018, you’ve had Timeline on your Windows 10 PC. It aims to end the frustration we’ve all encountered digging through emails and file folders for a document we just can’t find. Timeline makes it way easier to find what matters to you across your devices. You can also pick up what you were doing — even if it was on your iOS or Android device — on your Windows 10 PC when you’re ready to get back to it.

Now with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, your PC’s timeline is available on your phone, so you can scroll back in time to find the files and websites you were using on your phone, computer and tablet.

Basically, you can pick up where you left off, wherever you left off. Go back and forth in time by easily scrolling back to find things you were working on earlier today or earlier this week. Share or remove activities whenever you want from a specific day or hour.

Timeline shows 7 days of past activities, including activities done on a tablet and laptop when users are signed into their Microsoft accounts.

Timeline is now available in preview on Android phone via the Microsoft Launcher app and will be coming soon to preview for iPhone.
