Turn your phone into a Pixel 2+ with these rootless Pixel launchers

by birtanpublished on September 2, 2020

Hey guys nose my see here with Andrew police by now you're probably well aware of the launcher found the Google pixel too and then you can side load the official apk onto your device and have most of the same features but there are some great alternatives that

Give you even more features and customizations and you probably never heard of these apps as they're not in the Play Store two of my favorite launchers is the rootless pixel launcher by Amir's d and the other one is called

Realist pixel – launcher by phone very similar titles with similar motives but each one has its advantages both of these can be downloaded and installed on any Android device running Android 5.0 or higher with no requirement of route

Let's start with the rootless pixel launcher by amir z version 3.1 as expected this launcher is based on AOSP 8.1 launcher 3 so as most of the same features that you would expect to have on the official pixel 2 launcher this

Includes the Google now panel same animations at-a-glance widget Google search bar with the white or color G icon the new app shortcuts app drawer pixel blue accent color dark theme when using a dark wallpaper and more

Everything is fast smooth and works perfectly but the main reason why you would want to install this over the official pixel 2 launcher is that it supports custom icon packs this is a huge advantage because a lot of people

End up using a third-party launcher for this reason alone which is a bummer because in my opinion the pixel launcher is the best stock launcher I've ever used on top of that the calendar icons change with the day if the icon pack

Supports it and all icon packs are hidden from the app drawer when an icon pack is being used other than that everything else is the same including the settings it's honestly just a replication so you can have a

Similar pixel experience with the addition of using an eye compact if you want a bit more customization then try out ruthless pixel – launcher by fulfill like the previous launcher this one also has all the exclusive Android 8.1 pixel

– launcher features but with a few more settings and sadly no support for icon packs you can instantly toggle the dark theme mode without having a dark wallpaper to trigger it use dark text to increase visibility on light wallpapers

Force round icons disable the at-a-glance widgets you can use an alternative one if you're getting bored of it force the colored Google logo on the search bar regardless of the wallpaper hide apps from the app drawer

And remove the white gradient below the dock I'm not gonna lie this is my main launcher and the first one that I've chosen to use over Nova because of the exclusive features animation the option the added Glantz widget to use my own

Clock widget and the option to remove the white gradient effect for a flat look Plus everything loads up quickly animation to smooth the developer is very active with updates for stability and I haven't run into any issues while

Using this app I'm well aware that both of these astronauts feature packed as nova action or launch air and that there's still plenty of reasons to use a third-party launcher over a modified pixel – launcher but after using these

Two apps for a couple of weeks and made me realize how far we come from not ever using the stock launcher app it's now actually concerning them as the May one as you get exclusive features and animations that most third-party

Launcher apps don't have and you probably won't ever run into any bugs or forecloses well at least with the AOSP 8.1 launcher 3 either way I'll drop both links right below that like button if you also want to use the pixel 2

Launcher with the extra features just make sure you don't have the old pixel launcher installed before downloading installing this one let me know in the comments what your favorite launcher is give this video a huge thumbs up if you
