    Just a quick bugfix release for now. Rolling out to beta first and hoping to promote to release shortly.

    Please note that Android P is still a developer preview. For critical issues that are easy to work around (like this one) I'll try to get the fix out to people quickly, but more minor issues on preview OSes will often need to wait.

    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

    DO NOT REPORT BUGS AT THIS TIME You are using very early beta software that we have had no time to test against due to being at Google IO currently.

    You are free to use Nova Settings -> Contact support to file bugs, please note that you are using beta Android software so a response won't always happen for these things.

    There have been many posts within this community or emails sent to support asking about why there hasn't been any updates to Nova since January.

    I can assure you, Nova isn't dead. We are working on many things at the moment and those things are taking a considerable amount of time as we want them to work the best they possibly can when we release them. Plus we want them to be worth the wait.

    Not to mention we all have lives and various things to do such as Android conferences, Google I/O 2018 and other things. But we are doing everything we can to get things in order for the next release to show all of you the things we've been working on for so long.

    Google I/O is happening today, which means we'll possibly be seeing a lot of new Android features mentioned and talked about or even shown off.

    We expect there will be quite a few launcher things shown off as well, but please note that we are in attendance at Google I/O and are making full notes of what we hear and see with regards to launchers and what possible things we could bring to Nova for all of you.

    We ask at this time that you do NOT fill up this community asking for Android P features or anything that was shown or discussed at Google I/O.

    Android P is NOT in a final release yet and won't be for a while to come. That means features that we see or hear about today could be removed as soon as tomorrow. Once Android P gets closer to release we will then see what all we're going to add or include within Nova.

    There may be things we add prior to that, depending on what they are, how easy they are to include and if we feel they are important enough.

    But please, don't request any of this stuff until a later date. If you post said requests, your post will be removed from this community immediately.

    If you have any questions, comments, concerns or anything else, you are more than welcome to contact me directly using Nova Settings -> Contact Support.

    Android P Developer Preview 1

    We realize that Android P Developer Preview 1 has just been released to the masses and we ourselves are currently testing Nova against it in many numerous ways.

    We ask that you do NOT submit bug reports to this community about Android P DP1 nor post asking about feature request of things that are new in DP1 to be added to Nova.

    DP1 is very early stages of Android P and there's a lot of things that will be changing over the coming months.

    We are working on things that we want to bring into Nova from Android P and as per usual, we don't announce what's coming or what's not coming until we are ready to do so.

    If you post anything about Android P Developer Preview 1 within this community, please expect your post to be removed(deleted) as soon as we see it.

    If you absolutely feel the need to let us know something about Nova and Android P DP1, then you need to use the Nova Settings -> Contact Support button and email us directly.

    We appreciate everyone's understanding on this and we hope to bring some great new things to Nova Launcher as soon as we possibly can, but please just give us time to look into things ourselves.

    Once again, users are posting requesting Nova to update the Google feed, or offering "solutions" to get a newer style Google feed using pixel or other launchers and returning to Nova launcher.

    We are under strict instructions from the community owners NOT to allow any further posts about updating or offering solutions to update the Google feed.

    Unfortunately some users still do not understand that the Google feed belongs to Google and Nova physically cannot update a feed UI belonging to another company.

    No one posts here asking us to update Facebook, Facebook messenger or WhatsApp, so no one should be posting here asking us to update the Google feed.

    Therefore I am sorry to have to announce anyone ignoring our instructions on this rule will not only have their post immediately removed, but they will be banned from using the community for a period of 24 hours.

    We are not being mean or heavy handed, but enough is enough.

    Please contact Google to get the newer Google feed, please don't keep asking us or posting here with "solutions" or "workarounds" involving "other" launchers.

    For further information, please read the pinned post.

    Thank you

    The Google Feed

    Once again, posts have been made to the community asking us to update the nova companion to show the newer style Google feed.

    I'm not sure what users do not understand about the Google feed.

    We've given plenty of information and made many posts and comments about this subject, but once again, I will remind you all that:-

    The Google feed belongs to Google

    The Google feed is operated and updated by Google

    The nova companion only allows you to access the Google feed from nova launcher

    The nova companion CANNOT change, alter, add to or update the Google feed

    Can I PLEASE ask anyone wanting to update their Google feed to contact Google with your request

    Nova cannot do anything to change or update the Google feed and will not ever be able to update or change the feed, as the feed belongs to google

    Any further posts received about this subject will be removed immediately.

    FYI

    Two screenshots from two of my current devices, both running Nova prime 5.5.3 and the latest Google app.
    Both devices show the Pixel style Google feed in Nova.

    FYI

    I do not have the Pixel launcher or any other pixel based launcher installed on any device.

    STK Sync e (Android 6.0)
    Samsung A5 2016 (Android 8.0)

    I also have

    Sony Xperia L1 (Android 7.1.1)
    Nokia 6 (Android 7.1.1)

    Both these devices also show the Pixel style Google feed.

    The comments are currently disabled as there is nothing anyone needs to add to this post.

    The Google feed is a Google product and Nova launcher or the Google companion CANNOT and DO NOT control what you see in the feed.

    Now please let's let this drop and move on.

    Thank you.
