Adaptive Badges, Icons:- The Google Pixel Launcher brought adaptive icons, and now Android supports them systemwide and natively.Options can be given for different shaped masks that define the outside border (think squircles) and icons can be animated. Adaptive icons will be supported in the launcher, shortcuts, device Settings, sharing dialogues, and the app overview screen. Google has built this out in a way that’s easy for developers. They provide an icon as normal and a background, and the system stitches them together using a mask that the home launcher defines. Additionally, new icons support badges for new content. Called “Notification Dots” they are a lot like badges we’ve seen before. Google adds things like a preview pane from the home screen you can access from the icon shortcut as well as app-exclusive shortcuts, such as replying to a message.
