Nova Launcher Beta Adds Android O 'Dots' Notification Badges

Nova Launcher Beta Adds Android O 'Dots' Notification Badges

To have access to this as noted you will need to be on Beta, but once there and the latest build is on your device you'll see notification badges have appeared where you can add the notification badges.

Ever since its first release, Nova Launcher has been one of the finest third party launchers available for Android. Afterward, they can choose which corner of the app icon they want the dot placed and determine what size it should be.

If you're excited to try the dots in Nova Launcher beta, feel free to opt-in and try them out.

All pretty simple right? well, what are you waiting for?! This won't be possible in Nova Launcher until Android O is released later this summer, but it's a nice preview of what's to come. Here, they can choose which style of badge they would like (none, dynamic badges, dots, or numeric badges). Finally, the build also includes some "minor fixes" created to enhance the app's compatibility with Android O, one Nova Launcher developer revealed, without clarifying on the matter.

Notification badges have made huge strides on Nova Launcher in the last few months.

Of course, in Android O, notification dots are more than just badges, but shortcuts to actioning notifications from the icon itself with a long press. More details on the popular Android launcher and its upcoming features will likely be available later this year.
