Today, I will tell you the way you can enable Android O notification dots on any Android device.
We have seen the feature of notification badges in the devices such as Samsung. Today, I will tell you the way you can get this feature on any Android device but this will be totally different.
You might have used the launchers on any device. Today, I will show you the way you can enable those feature with the help of the Nova Launcher which will help you to enable the Android O notification dots on your device.
What is Nova Launcher?
Nova Launcher is the application which helps you to change the look and feel of your Android device. Suppose if you have Android Jellybean, and you need to enjoy the look and feel of Android Nougat then you can do the customization in your launcher and enjoy Android N features.
Now, the new Beta version of the Nova launcher is up, and you can enjoy the notification dots on your device too if you enroll yourself to the beta version of the nova launcher.
Recently, Cliff Wade from TeslaCoil posted a changelog on XDA and came up with the new features in the latest beta of Nova Launcher.
- Dots! Android O style notification badges.
- Round search bar style. Performance improvements.
- Minor fixes for Android O.
Enable Android O Notification Dots on Any Android Device
We have seen the Samsung earlier devices was having the feature of notification badges. We have seen stock Android never came up with the feature of notification badges. Now, Android O is coming with notification badges.
If you want to enjoy the notification dots on your Android device, then you need to pay 4.99$ to buy the Nova Launcher Prime. This feature is still available for the beta users. If you want to enjoy this feature on your device, then you need to enroll yourself to the beta version and buy the software.
Personally, I don’t like the notification badges just because it keeps on showing us the number of how many messages you have got. I love the new feature which is coming in Android O, and you can use this feature on your device too with the help of Nova Launcher.
