OnePlus is mostly known for its premium software experience and one of the vital components is its launcher. Oneplus launcher was not updated from quite some time but now it is getting an update.
This update brings two brand new features
1:-A faster way to navigate through your recent apps
2:-And an easier way to access quick search in the app drawer.
These things would not look like much but will considerably improve your phone using experience.
Let’s see more information about it in detail below.
1]Navigation icons added for recent apps
OnePlus launcher now shows app icons under the list of Recent apps. These icons now also work as a slider that you can use to navigate through your list of recent apps. You can swipe directly on the row of icons to scroll through the list, switching faster instead of moving one app per swipe as before. It also helps identify apps easily under the icon preview.
OnePlus also added ‘Close Apps’ button with text on it instead of the huge ‘X’ icon that was present before, making for a polished new interface. This actually feels good.
The previous overflow menu (vertical three-dots) at the top right corner was used for menu options? Well, there is a small trick now,
long-press on the preview present in the recent apps screen to access more options such as Lock, App Info, and Split screen. No need to reach out to the top of the screen.
2]Press and hold for a quick search
This is the feature you will use the most. This is quite handy and will help in one-handed operation.
To use the newly added quick search feature, press and hold while you swipe up to access the app drawer. You’ll be directly taken to the search input box, as you can see in the image below. This update makes it much easier to trigger by one hand.
The update is now available in Google Play Store. Download the newest version and tell us how you feel about it.No detail is too small and this is a quite helpful update from OnePlus.we hope one plus will surely keep us updated with all the new features as soon as it is available.
