    The first beta of the next major release for Nova Launcher was made official the day after Android Pie was made public. Nova Launcher v6.0-beta1 brings many features from Android P's launcher and here is a list we made with most of the changes in this update:


    • The Google search bar can be positioned above or below the icons in the dock
    • Dock as overlay option

    App drawer

    • Support for Google search in the app drawer
    • Bounce animation from Pixel Launcher


    • Full-screen folder view
    • Customizable folder background shape
    • Vertical or horizontal scrolling in folders
    • Clip to background setting for folder previews


    • Fully customizable Google search bar
    • Search option in Settings
    • Better previews in Settings
    • Option to match the app icon size to the desktop size for icons in the app drawer, folders, and dock
    • Manual X and Y padding control slider for the home screen, the dock, and the app drawer.
    • Customizable shortcuts for the pop-up menu when you hold on an app, a shortcut or a widget
    • Custom app icon shape support
    • New setup UI

    This time we got a huge settings overhaul. The search bar in the settings is very useful, but why does it have to be a separate overlay when it can just expand on top of the action bar like the search option in Android's Settings app.
