The HTC Edge Launcher is a feature that debuted with the
HTC U11+ and lets users access a host of applications and functions by squeezing their phone and getting a carousel of icons. It is an expansion of the Edge Sense feature launched earlier last year that only let you trigger one function at a time.
In the latest update, now rolling out over the Google Play Store, users can edit the position of the icons on the carousel by pressing and holding on them.
Another addition is that users can now add shortcuts to battery saver, auto rotate, and Wi-Fi hotspot, among others.
Lastly, the feature can now also be triggered from the lockscreen. If you have a password or fingerprint setup, you still have to enter it after touching a shortcut but otherwise the feature just launches directly.
The Edge Launcher feature will also be rolling out to more HTC devices with Edge Sense support.
