Download Android P Launcher – Brings Focus Back to the Dock! [APK Download]
Google released the upcoming version of Android P earlier today for the developer community to start testing. Among an extensive list of features, visual redesign, and improvements, the company also always plays around with the launcher.
One of the most used and viewed screen on any Android phone, launcher is an important part of the Android ecosystem. This time is no different as Google has introduced some changes, even if minor ones, to Android P launcher. You can take a look at the differences between Android Oreo and Android P launcher in the above screenshot. The differences are minor and mostly cosmetic but then you can’t expect the company to deliver some groundbreaking changes to the Pixel launcher with every Android iteration.
Android P launcher brings focus back to the dock
Dock fans would be delighted to see the dock coming back to its full glory. Android Oreo had kind of hidden the dock removing all the visual cues. With Android P, Pixel launcher now carries a transparent, cloudy shade to highlight the dock. As the dock carries your favorite apps and a Google search bar, giving it some focus helps it stand out from the rest of the clutter on your home screen.
Another change is the addition of the mic icon on the right side of the search bar. This will open up Google Assistant, offering easier access to Google’s smart assistant.
