Pixel Launcher and Google Now Launcher are exclusive to Google Pixel and Nexus smartphones. Both launchers are lightweight and intuitive, but do not have much user configurable options. For example, you cannot change app icons or apply icon packs, edit labels, etc. However, with Pixel Launcher Mods, you can customize both Pixel and Google Now Launcher with icons and more.

One thing that beautifies an Android phone’s homescreen is apps icons, but in reality, many of these icons are not exactly eye candy, mainly because of their irregular shapes. Android Oreo’s Adaptive icons feature solves this issue significantly in Pixel Launcher, but if you want more customization, then the Pixel Launcher Mods app might be a good choice.



Developed by an XDA user Quinny899, the Pixel Launcher Mods app offers the following customizations, but the app requires root access on the phone. Also, the app supports many other launchers based on Launcher3, including the Google Now Launcher.

– Change icons (Changing Individual icons as well as applying full Icon Packs supported, and applying from a file too!)

– Change Labels

– Modify widget sizes (down to 1×1 if you wish)

Of course, all these features are already available with popular third-party launchers like Nova Launcher, but if you prefer stock Google Pixel Launcher or Google Now Launcher, then we hope this mod will be useful.


Interested users can download Pixel Launcher Mods APK from source here and install it. After installation, launch the app, select the desired option (Apply Icon Pack, Edit Icons & Labels, Resize widget) and apply the settings.
