    Default Moto G - Add Icons to Swipe Up Display?

    Hey all,

    I was wondering if I can add icons to the display that comes up when I swipe up from the home button on the Moto G.

    Currently on the display is the Google icon which takes me to Google Now. Is there a method of adding more icons to the display?

    e.g. Swipe up for Google Now
    Swipe right for Chrome
    Swipe left for Whatsapp

    There looks to be plenty of room on the display which got me thinking.

    Third party launchers, such a Nova, allow gesture based controls on the home screen. If you go that route you'll lose Google Now swipe up functionality as it's done now on your device, but you'll be able to assign other apps with various swipe gestures.

    Currently not supported by the stock Motorola launcher.
