Pixels and other near-stock Android phones have the Google Feed embedded in their home screen, but unfortunately, the standard OnePlus Launcher does not. Another disappointing fact is that the Google Feed code is built into the OnePlus Launcher, but it is not activated. Let's change that.
You do not have to change your default start screen to get the Google Feed (also known as Google Now). Developers Stian Pedersen and HofaTheRipper have created a Magisk module with which you can replace the standard movement to the left (the "plank" function of OnePlus) with the Google Feed. It is a simple module that requires minimal installation ̵
- Magisk installed
- OxygenOS Android 9 or higher
- OnePlus Launcher set as default start screen
Step 1: Remove Launcher updates and disable Auto-Update
Google Feed on the stock OnePlus Launcher is enabled, must be updated every time the home screen app gets an update. So to ensure compatibility, go from your phone to the Play Store page of OnePlus Launcher .
Now tap "Delete" and then click "OK" when you are asked if you want updates for the app. When that is complete, tap the three-dot menu button in the upper right corner and select the check box next to & # 39; Enable automatic update & # 39; from. This ensures that the Google Feed not only disappears due to an incompatible update.
Step 2: Download the OnePlus Google Feed Module
Now you need the Magisk- grab a module that makes the Google Feed possible because it is not available in the Magisk Manager app. After you have downloaded the file to your phone's storage, you can proceed to the next step.
Note: If you are using Android 10 and the following steps do not work, try downloading this version .
Step 3: Install the module manually
Because you have downloaded the file yourself, you must install it manually. Open the Magisk Manager app to the main screen, tap the menu on the left and go to the "Modules" section. Press the plus button at the bottom and search for the OnePlus Google Feed module. Tap the file once to start the installation process, and then tap the & # 39; Restart & # 39; to restart your device once it is complete.
When you are back from restarting, hold down blank space on the home screen of your OnePlus Launcher. At the bottom, tap "Home Settings" and then the "Left Screen" option. From here, simply tap the "Google app" option to replace the plank function as the new default swipe to the left on your home screen. It's that simple!
Now, when you swipe to the left on your home screen, you get the Google Feed instead of the OnePlus board. Unfortunately, you cannot have both at the same time, but the Google Feed is generally regarded as the more useful of the two.
