    As for the functionality, the Timeline feature allows the users to resume the tasks they were performing from where they had left it. All a user will need to do now is go back to activity history, for example, opening a website which they have visited a few days ago or open any document on which they were working earlier without the need for searching the file. This will make it easy for the users o complete any pending work which they might have not been able to complete due to any reason.

    Apart from resuming the pending tasks users will also be able to perform some other functions with the Timeline feature. Now, with the introduction of this feature, the users will be able to access their PC's timeline on both the Android as well as iOS platforms using the Microsoft launcher. Once a user has logged in with the same Microsoft account on their smartphones as well as PCs, the activity Timeline on both the devices will sync automatically.

    In addition to the above-mentioned Timeline feature for smartphones, Microsoft has also introduced a new section for News with the update. The News feed section on the Microsoft Launcher 5.0 now populates the news based on a user's areas of interests. This will make it easy for the users to stay updated with the news which they are following on daily basis.
