Custom app icons on Android


(Andy Graham) #21

I legit asked for the LGBT icon over a year ago, when iOS got it. Thank god android now has it!

Yeah I was just going to swap it directly, probably for the iOS version of Beta.

I’ve currently got the M without the bg.

Nova launcher

Hold on app > Edit Shortcut > tap icon > Gallery apps > Files > Select new image for icon

Talking customisation… When can we disable that useless and obtrusive pulse bother? I hate wasted screen real estate. At least tweak it’s behaviour so when scrolling it automatically hides.

I was jealous of my girlfriend’s Pride icon on her iPhone - glad I can now join her on my Android! :rainbow:

Quite an exciting development, on the stock Google launcher with the first Android Q beta, the custom icon updates itself - no need to re-add :ok_hand::grin: hopefully custom icons become more widely supported by Android and the feature gets adopted by more Devs :pray::tada:

Here’s a screen recording of this in action :sunglasses:
