Give Your Phone An Android P Makeover With The Latest Action Launcher Update

Android: Android P won't officially launch until later this year. While you can get in a little early by checking out Google's latest developer preview, there's another way to get a taste of Android P on your current smartphone if you're fearful of buggy beta software.

Action Launcher, a popular feature-packed Android skin, announced its latest update this week, which packs in a few design ideas from Android P.

Version 35 of the software copies the home screen search dock - including its rounded corners and transparent shading - from Google's upcoming operating system. App folders also get the same rounded-edge treatment.

Action Launcher's update also brings a few new features, with a focus on the All Apps drawer. Version 35 gives you the option to keep any apps that are already on your home screen from showing up in the apps drawer, which should reduce clutter and make it easier to find apps on your device.

You can also add multiple apps to a folder at once, which is a huge time saver if you're used to doing it one at a time.

These may sound like small changes, but they will give your smartphone a fresh new look while you wait for the official release of Android P. You can grab Action Launcher now from Google Play, which should be compatible with any Android device running Android 5.0 or later.

It might take another day or two Action Launcher's latest tweaks to roll out, so stay patient if you don't see them immediately.
