Android O Highlight: Pixel Launcher to get a new teardrop icon shape


The third Android O Developer Preview has just released for the beta devices. The release includes final APIs for Android O along with official SDK developer tools. The latest developer preview shows an all-new teardrop-shaped icon for Pixel launcher apart from square, rounded square and squircle shapes which were already available for quite sometime now.

The teardrop icon looks really cool resembling a chat bubble, just like the Allo icon. This new option seems to be working fine on Developer Preview 3 and should be rolled out to the Pixel launcher when Android O releases officially.

Android O brings a host of features and updates and this is just a small addition to allow users to give their menu icons an updated look and feel.
