    Recent versions of Microsofts Launcher have said it supports changing the lock screen wallpaper. I've been unable to find options in the Launcher to change that. I'm using a Galaxy S7 Edge running Android 7.0 patched up to December 2017. The Launcher version I'm using is 4.5.1.39811.
    Is this feature working on other devices?
    I like to use the daily bing wallpaper for my home screen, and would like that to also be my lock screen.

    Not just you, I've searched and can't find this option either. I'll post something if I find anything

    I could have sworn that is used to always change the lock screen along with the home screen. In fact, unless I'm mistaken my lock screen right now is a daily wallpaper from a week or two ago. It seems to have stopped changing the lock screen about that long ago, and I've also been looking for a way to (re-?) enable it myself.

    When you go into the launcher wallpaper settings and pick the wallpaper (including the Bing daily wallpaper) it will ask if you want to set the home screen, lock screen or both. It will then change both screens if you want. However... the lock screen doesn't change after you've done that. The home screen changes daily, but the lock screen stays the same until you manually "choose the wallpaper again". It definitely used to update itself, but not anymore

    It's different for me - it doesn't ask me if I want home screen/lock screen/both. If I pick a static wallpaper, it shows a screen with the wallpaper and a button across the bottom of the screen that says "SET." Strangely it also says "Swipe to change wallpaper" at the top of the picture but swiping actually does nothing. If I pick the Bing daily wallpaper, it brings up a panel with two on/off controls that are labeled "Turn on Bing daily wallpaper" and "Only download images while on Wi-fi." Am I missing some step that would make it ask me about whether I want to set the home screen and/or lock screen? When is it supposed to ask me?

    It is a little bit tricky. You must click on the Bing logo directly on the launcher page (it is just above the "dock" on the right.
    And only from there, when choosing a wallpaper, you get proposed to setup the lock screen or start screen or both.
