The latest version is based on Android 8.1 Oreo on the Google Pixel 2, but it’s tuned to the specific Android version (Lollipop upwards) that you have on your phone. Among the included features are the Google Feed, app shortcuts, notification dots, and automatic theme changing based on the wallpaper.

The developer has also tossed in some improvements of their own into the launcher, like icon pack support, installed app suggestions based on what you’ve previously clicked, and the ability to open and close notifications from anywhere on the home screen.

It isn’t available in Google Play but you can download the APK from the GitHub page at the link if you want to check it out; read over its numerous features in the Reddit post here.
