Google’s Pixel Launcher might not host the same number of highlights as third-gathering choices like Lawnchair, Nova Launcher, or Action Launcher, however its effortlessness and clean structure have earned it numerous fans. The launcher comes pre-introduced on Google Pixel gadgets and just infrequently gets refreshes.
They by and large observe new highlights go to the launcher when Google discharges another Pixel gadget or significant Android update, however the primary Android 11 Developer Preview didn’t carry any new Pixel Launcher highlights with it. In any case, we realize Google has been dealing with the launcher since we spotted indications at another “hotseat” include.
Presently, XDA Senior Member paphonb, one of the designers on the Lawnchair group and a veteran Pixel Launcher modder, has found a few other new highlights that could be going to Google’s launcher application.
Paphonb adjusted the most recent Pixel Launcher work from the Android 11 Developer Preview so as to surface a few being developed highlights. These highlights remember new activities for the ongoing applications outline, the capacity to conceal individual application proposals in the application cabinet, and programmed naming of recently made envelopes.
New Actions in Recent Apps Overview
In Android 9 Pie, Google moved the code for the ongoing applications handler from SystemUI to Launcher3, which is the stock AOSP launcher. Simultaneously, Google additionally presented more excellent late application diagram cards that looked over on a level plane, a help that permits the client to choose content and pictures from outline cards (on Pixel gadgets just), and an assistance that surfaces a line of recommended applications underneath the review card.
Presently in Android 11, Google is trying supplanting the application proposal push in the ongoing applications review with a lot of 3 activities. These activities incorporate “select,” “screenshot,” and “share.” The “select” button wasn’t practical for paphonb, yet we can think about what it does.
It likely features all content and pictures that can be chosen in the outline card. With respect to the next two fastens, the screen capture button catches a picture of the application that is in center, while the offer catch catches a screen capture at that point opens the offer menu so you can rapidly share it.
Concealing Individual App Suggestions
Google’s line of proposed applications depends on the ongoing applications that you have most regularly opened. While it’s conceivable to shroud this line totally by heading off to the Suggestions submenu in the Pixel Launcher settings, it is beyond the realm of imagination to expect to prevent certain applications from appearing right now. That could change soon, in any case.
Paphonb shared a screen capture demonstrating another “don’t suggest app” activity when long-squeezing the symbol of any application in the recommended application push. This activity presently doesn’t work, however it’s unmistakable what it would do.
Naturally Naming Folders
The Pixel Launcher may before long have the option to naturally give a name to recently made organizers that you make by moving one application symbol onto another. As of now, you can physically name envelopes by tapping on the “unnamed” content at the base of the organizer, however Google may spare you a touch of exertion by identifying what sort of applications you’re gathering.
For instance, in the video beneath, paphonb exhibited the Pixel Launcher consequently naming a recently made organizer “Communication” when he gathered Messages and Gmail together. He likewise indicated it naming a recently made organizer as “Social” when he set up Telegram and Facebook.
They don’t know precisely how the Pixel Launcher is figuring out what sort of utilizations the client has gathered, however almost certainly, Google is utilizing an extensive rundown of names and kinds of the most well known applications on the Play Store.
These highlights are not yet accessible for clients in the most recent Pixel Launcher discharge, and it’s conceivable that Google may never discharge them. You can anticipate highlights like these in changed forms of Google’s launcher, however. In the event that Google decides to empower any of these highlights in a future update.
