OnePlus Launcher 4.3.3 lets you hide icon labels and adds an AMOLED black theme to Shelf
Earlier today, OnePlus released a new version of the OnePlus Launcher on the Google Play Store. The changelog for the update mentions that the launcher now supports hiding icon labels, and it also mentions that the UI has improved. Here’s what you need to know:
Hiding Icon Labels
This feature is fairly straightforward. Open the OnePlus Launcher settings and you’ll find a new “hide icon labels” toggle in the main menu. Enable this and the text will disappear underneath app icons in the home screen and in folders. App icon labels will still appear when you open the app drawer, though. This feature will help make the home screen feel less cluttered if you’re going for a more immersive look. I personally like this feature since I’ve taken the time to group all the apps I use into folders in a single home screen page, and I’ve used this setup for long enough to know exactly where to go when I want to launch a certain app.
AMOLED black theme for OnePlus Shelf
This change was spotted by Redditor /u/JelleZon_ over on the /r/OnePlus subreddit. Instead of a dark gray, the OnePlus Shelf now has an AMOLED black background. This makes the OnePlus Shelf match the rest of the dark themed interfaces in OxygenOS 10. As a reminder, the Shelf is the minus-one screen on international, EU, and Indian versions of OxygenOS; the Shelf is replaced with the Google Discover feed in U.S. carrier devices.
Version 4.3.3 of the OnePlus Launcher is available now for OnePlus devices running OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10, which includes the OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T, and OnePlus 7T Pro. The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are expected to get the OxygenOS 10 update later this year. You can download the latest version from the Google Play Store. I received the update already on my OnePlus 7 Pro, but if the update hasn’t reached your device yet, you can skip the wait by sideloading the APK from APKMirror .
