2.Using Nova Launcher

You know that for doing a particular thing there are two different way: an easy one and a difficult one. Using Nova launcher , is the latter one. So basically all you will need in this process is:  nova launcher , pixel look alike icon pack, and pixel stock wallpaper.

So lets start with process.

Download Nova launcher from the package below. (PS: some features i will describe are supported only by nova launcher beta version 3 and above. So ,some features might not be supported by the playstore version)

It looks like pixel? far no. You need to make some changes to it that will later result you into a pixel like experience.

So below are steps on how to do it.

  1. Desktop>Indicators and change page indicator option to “None”
  2. and Turn on “Swipe to drawer indicator” option.
