Android TV launcher update lets you reorganize your home screen apps


If you’re using a smart TV running Android TV or using a set-top box like the NVIDIA Shield TV, you’ll be glad to know the launcher has been updated to include a much-needed feature. With the latest software version, you’ll be able to reorganize apps on your home screen so they’re laid out exactly how you want them to be.

With the new launcher you simply head to ‘Settings’, then hit ‘Home Screen’ then ‘Apps & Games’. You can organize apps using a custom order you set for yourself, or choose to have it organize automatically by recent apps. Once you’ve chosen to organize using your own custom order, you can drag and drop app icons by long-pressing on the app/game you want to move.

To download, you can grab the new launcher directly from APK Mirror or download the update from the Play Store.
