What to Expect from Nova Launcher v5.2

Nova Launcher is a fully customizable home screen replacement for all types of Android devices, and it’s easy to see why so many users love it. The main advantage of the app lies in the myriad of customization options it offers to the everyday user, and this is why many Android users hold it as their go-to aftermarket launcher. And now it also has a new and updated version that brings many Android O-style changes.

The new version, Nova Launcher 5.2, comes with notification badges that look like those we’ve seen on Android O developer preview. However, what is the most interesting here is that Android O might have actually been inspired by Nova Launcher in this, and not the other way around. Nova’s developers have been testing and out and playing around with customizable notification badges for a while now, and they did offer this feature as a separate companion called the TeslaUnread for Nova Launcher. So it might very well be the case that Google was inspired by Nova, and not the other way around. After all, Nova’s the first to this party.

Other improvements include a round search bar style, as well as updated translations and minor bug fixes and performance tweaks to fit the future launch of Android O. Yes, Nova are getting prepared for the impending arrival of the newest version of Android, namely Android O, which many believe stands for Android 8.0 Oreo.

In order to receive the new notification badge feature, you need to grant Nova Launcher access to your notifications. Then you can customize the size, as well as the placement of the dots, but that’s about all you can do so far. Maybe in the future there will be more options. We’ll just have to wait and see.
