Action Launcher, one of the many very popular and competent Android launchers that is out here, has been updated to version 29, and with this update, it brings a series of new features and upgrades (alongside the usual slew of bug fixes and improvements).
The first of these changes is the addition of the dock-style search bar that Google showcased in the new Pixel 2 Launcher at their #MadeByGoogle hardware event earlier this week. It's a feature that caught many eyes at the event and has left many people desiring a similar, Pixel-esque experience on their own devices. Lovers of this feature will also be happy to hear that in a typical Action Launcher fashion, the search bar is fully customisable. That's right; using Action Launcher's quickbar editor, you can easily manipulate and customise every single aspect of that dock that you could possibly think of. It's a great way to truly make your launcher look unique, and yours.
Aside from that, there have been a series of enhancements and improvements to the Quickbar – including but not limited to the ability to use the "G" style Google logos and customize the search box's corner radius – allowing you to get that round look from the new Pixel 2 XL, if you're an adamant follower of the Cult of Pixel. Other than that, you can expect a number of bug fixes and improved launcher stability. Furthermore, they recently added full Google Now integration, backwards compatible Adaptive Icon pack support, notification dots and an improved weather widget.
