The Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, which was launched recently, pack in some cool features. And as per the latest report, the Google Pixel 5 Pixel Launcher is available to download.
Thanks to XDA, users of the old Google Pixel devices can now download the new Google Pixel 5 Pixel Launcher app, which also added a new grid size options feature.
Well, ditching the flagships for 2020, Google went ahead with the mid-range Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. Besides, both the phones are 5G compatible and bring forth some cool new features for the users.
However, some of the features are currently limited to the Pixel 5 smartphone. Though these features will eventually make their way to older models, for that older Pixel users would have to wait.
Good thing is that XDA was able to extract the latest Google Pixel 5 Pixel Launcher APK. It brings a new feature that lets you set the grid size between 4 different options.
You can select, 5×5, 4×4, 3×3, or 2×2 grid size options, in order to customize your Pixel's home screen. In fact, you can download this APK and install it on any of your Pixel devices.
Google Pixel 5 Pixel launcher can be installed on any Pixel phone
We will give you the download link to the latest Pixel 5 Pixel Launcher APK down below. Once you have downloaded that app, install the APK just like any other normal APK.
And you can access the grid size customization feature by simply long-pressing an empty part on the home screen. You will be shown a list of grid size opinions, i.e. 5×5, 4×4, 3×3, 2×2.
You can set the home grid size as per your convenience or your home screen setup. Based on the selection of grid size, the app icons will adjust their size and show up on the home screen of your Google Pixel phone.
XDA has tested the feature running perfectly on Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 4. Apparently, there is one thing before downloading this APK is that you should be running Android 11 in order to install this app.
Moreover, sideloading this new Pixel 5 Pixel launcher APK will also bring a new live wallpaper picker UI on older Pixel devices.
But there is a catch. You will not be able to use this new live wallpaper UI as the Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G are using a slightly newer version of Android 11.
Nevertheless, if you are interested in getting the grid size options for your home screen setup then, you can grab the Pixel 5 launcher from the button given below.
