OnePlus Launcher update adds support for OnePlus 5 & 5T, navigation icons for recent apps, & more

The OnePlus Launcher makes OxygenOS one of the best Android skins out there. The launcher is much more deeply integrated into the system as opposed to third-party launchers available in the Google Play Store.

As of this writing, OnePlus is sending out a new update to the launcher that tags along some interesting stuff. The major highlight is the support for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T handsets.

The duo has been around since 2017. Following their recent update to OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10, they became the second pair from the company to pick up three major Android OS updates after OnePlus 3 and 3T.
