San Francisco, Nov. 22 (IANS) – Microsoft has added a "Digital Health" feature with support from Cortana in the beta version of its Android launcher, which will allow users to track application uses.

The Microsoft launcher "Version 5.1" is an attempt to give users more control over how they interact with social media, Windows Central reported on Wednesday.

Together with the "Digital Health" feature, the new update integrates the "To Do List" and "Sticky Notes" list to allow users to synchronize their tasks and notes.

"The launcher's" To-Do "card now shows tasks from Outlook and Skype applications, along with the" Notes "card, showing your" Sticky Notes "listings on Windows, Outlook and OneNote mobile," the report added.

The new beta is available to testers on the Google Play Store and should be released to all users in the coming weeks, the report added.

Big technology companies like Apple, Facebook and Instagram recently added features like "Screen Time", "Your Activity" and "Your Time on Facebook", respectively, to alert users about the use of applications.

In October, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would soon adopt Android to mirror mobile applications on computers, so the company has aggressively updated the Android launcher in the last year.

Earlier this year, the technology giant added the family-focused localization tracking feature to the Android startup application along with an activity reporting feature that keeps track of which apps are being used on a device and for how much time.
