Abstract: Microlensing has become a powerful method to detect cold extrasolar planets beyond the snowline and free-floating planets. In this talk, I will first introduce the basic concepts of gravitational microlensing, review some of the recent discoveries with ongoing surveys, and then finish with a discussion of the future outlook of the field.
