Earlier an XDA member has launched the port of Google Pixel launcher that brings the entire Pixel UI experience of an Android device. You will be surprised to know that a new modified version of this launcher is available and it even weighs less than 5MB’s. The new version of this launcher is termed as Pixel Launcher 3 and we are expecting a similar UI design in the upcoming Pixel device as well. So if you are the one who wants to download and install this launcher before any of your playfellows then you have landed at the right destination. Let’s see procedure to install Pixel Launcher 3 on any Android Devices.
The biggest merit of this launcher is that it is rootless and is isntallable on a rooted as well as on a non-rooted device. This small launcher even brings features like Notification dots and works flawlessly. The launcher is available for free and can be installed on the devices running Android 7.0 Nougat or above version. We have tried it on our Moto G5 Plus unit and believe us it is one of the best launchers we have ever experienced yet.
Note: This launcher is not available in Play Store so don’t spoil your precious time.

Pixel Launcher 3 features
In the earlier version of this app the theme(Dark/White) changes on the basis of your current wallpaper. This time a user can manually set it as per his/her liking. The search bar now has a split Mic icon in the bottom to start the Google Assistant easily. You can even customize the color of Search and Mic icon. This time the option to apply a third-party icon pack has been eliminated.
This launcher supports Landscape mode as well. Hide apps and Force round icons feature is now in-build. According to us, several improvements have been made in this but we are getting mixed opinions about it. If you want to make your device look like a Pixel device or wanna give it a stock Android look then you can try it without a doubt.
