can't change invidual icons like in Nova Launcher, which is stopping me from using this launcher as of now
also, no option to see the unread count
other than that this launcher is swell

Great launcher. If I could make some requests:
- import home settings Frome another launcher
- customize tray launcher height
- resize apps folder on home screen just like a widget

One more time very good job...

Hi, great job! With Amir Zaidi's Rootless Pixel Launcher I am able to have the weather display on the homepage in the pill area. Can this be added to this version?

Thanks for all the work so far

To activate "badge notification" in android 7.1 go to "Settings" -> "Apps" -> click cogwheel -> go down to "Special Access" -> "Notification Access" and from there activate the notification badges for this launcher.

Here is what I have to say after first see:
When change number of columns to 5 (idk for other values) it look like the part of time widged is cut off (see screenshot). Also when change number of icons in tray to 4 it doesn't react after you move some icon and then it kicks out the one on right.
All in all this is very nice launcher keep it up!
But I have feeling that it's lazy not to say slow. Maybe is just feel like that..

Pill G and voice search sometimes dissapear and appears after opening app drawer..

i cant use this launcher on my one plus one running 6.0.1 MM Ressurection Remix ROM. It lags so badly and i always get a not responding message for this app. This app is literally unusable

You need to make this app work for kitkat users as well not all of us can get access to newer versions of android:) So please do:)

Really good launcher, used it for a while and have all the bells and whistles I need to make a little bit personal.
Missing just one thing is Android O Pixel Launcher style app shortcuts, else I am using it as my main launcher from today. Well done developer, keep the good work going.

Very nice work. Is there no weather on the pixel pill?? Tried refreshing my google feed several times but no luck. Will keep trying though.

Also hope you can make the notification badge and the force touch work for lower android version.

Nevertheless, very good work and thanks. Will keep checking the thread for updates.

Btw, I'm running Andriod 6.0

Good Launcher. I'm keeping an eye on for future updates. That said, in its current form, it's quite lacking.

- CanNOT resize some widgets, but I can with other widgets. I have a ported Moto Z Force widget, and it's chopped and I can't resize it. But I have some Sony clock widgets which I CAN resize.

- It feels like I'm only on 15-23FPS with this because it's quite slow and laggy on my Xperia Z5 Premium running 7.0, whereas on Nova Launcher it feels like I'm always on 60FPS.

- My icon pack does not show at all.

Those are my only issues with this Launcher. But I like the idea here. God bless.

I'm a performance-over-features kinda guy when it comes to Launchers and I think I've just found my daily driver.

My one gripe is to make the dock background transparent, but I see on Github it's already in the pipeline.

Awesome job!

EDIT - One other thing. Is it possible to have the option not to have newly installed apps automatically have a Home Screen icon?

Thanks for this, great work.

Using it on 6p and g6
My wife's LG G6 double tap screen off doesn't work with this launcher... Any chance you can get that working?

    I know this is probably a 'naughty' question but can you kindly give a rough timescale for Pixel 2, for those of us who find your work very exciting? Hours, days, weeks or months? ?
    You should get a first taste of Pixel 2 features pretty soon ;)
