I'm running the Dirty Unicorns Nougat ROM. I installed this launcher. Looks cool and all, but I noticed, the Google Now page on the left is redesigned. Something like this https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Byz...w?usp=drivesdk
AFAIK, this is only in the launcher, the Google app still shows the old design.
Although I totally dig the new look, I can't swipe to remove a card in this new design. I have to do the 3dots menu -> hide story. Not a deal-breaker, but minor annoyance.

Nice, altough I can't customize the icon shape, it would be nice if we could and it would also be nice if we could put custom icon themes... Btw i'm running fine on my OnePlus 3T on OOS 4.5.1

Pixel launcher 2
I seen on Google Plus pixel launcher 2 on the pixel 2 phones have automatic light and dark theme based it changes by the wallpaper light wallpaper with light theme dark wallpaper with dark theme and it changes the color of the notification panel that would be a feature for a future update but that's if Google decides add that to the pixel 2 launcher for other Android phones just a thought

I have a Nexus 6P and the launcher works perfect for me. My wife have a honor 8 and on her phone there is no option in settings for icon shape. Developer is enabled. Anyone have an idea?

Apparently the Pixel 2 launcher has auto dark modes for dark wallpapers, can you port that?

Your phone is on O and your wife's on N/M?

There are 2 cases when this port needs root.
1. You're on a Pixel. But if you're on a Pixel you don't need this anyway as you can just install the official version.
2. You're on some custom ROMs that include Pixel Launcher for some reason. If this is the case then I don't see why rooting is a problem for you since you already unlocked your bootloader.
Otherwise, I don't know any phone that includes Pixel Launcher as a system app.

There are some codes related to this but it's not working. I'll wait for a full system dump first.
