How to Get Adaptive Icons on any Android Device

Android Oreo 8.0 update is already rolling out for Smartphones like pixel series and others. It will be available for most of the latest Smartphones very soon. Android Oreo comes with some cool features, and one of my favorite features is Adaptive Icons. In this post, I will tell you How to Get Adaptive Icons on any Android Device.

Adaptive Icons: Android Oreo 8.0 introduces adaptive launcher icons, which can display a variety of shapes across different device models. For example, an adaptive launcher icon can display a circular shape on one OEM device, and display a squircle on another device. Each device OEM provides a mask, which the system then uses to render all adaptive icons with the same shape.
