Xiaomi’s Poco Launcher is lightweight, fast, smooth and features a customizable app drawer, enhanced app shortcut function, app recommendations, and dark theme. It is one of the best apps of its category with 4.7 stars rating on Google Play Store and available for all phones runs Android 5.0 and up. Xiaomi updated the Poco Launcher app to version 2.0 with some new features and Android Q support.

The main changes of Poco Launcher 2.0 are related to the app drawer. Now users can create their own app groups by clicking the + icon at the top right and delete any group that they think inappropriate. Until recently, it was only possible to add applications to pre-made groups such as entertainment, tools, Lifestyle, etc.



One of the most attractive features of Poco Launcher is a true dark mode for app drawer. Xiaomi offers three app drawer background options – Light, Dark, and System. You can select an option depending on your taste. It is also possible to set drawer transparency ranging from 0% to 100%.
