    I am really indifferent to the round icons, but I do like the Pixel's Google search bar and the time/date/weather widget.

    I am wondering if the Pixel style time/date/weather widget is available for the X5? I figured there must be something like this out there, but I've not found anything in this particular format.

    Also, with using a stock launcher is it possible to change the search bar (I don't think it is...)?

    Here is what I am talking about:pixel style home screen-app-shortcuts-1.jpg

    I think there is a theme in the Play Store that can help with this. It's called Pixel UI.

    Nova Launchers update today allows you to have the Pixel style search bar and app shortcuts. Version 5.0 I think.

    Action Launcher also gives a lot of the Pixel look and feel. To go full Pixel, you'll need a rooted and unlocked Nexus 5X to get there.

    Nova launcher doesn't give the weather, just date - time.

    Search for Pixel launcher apk and install that. I used it for a few days and it's smooth. I missed the functionality of Nova and hence went back to it

    Try this to enable the weather in the search bar. In Nova settings go to 'Labs' and switch 'Allow weather in search bar' on. Then go to desktop - search bar style and check 'weather'. If you don't have Labs enabled, open Nova settings and hold volume down for a couple of seconds.

    The weather option can be a bit buggy on some devices, tell us if it works fine on yours.

    Glad it helped, mate! Have you already tried the new swipe to open the drawer, a la Pixel? It's great.

    Yes. I was using the Pixel launcher before Nova came with this update. Like it. I like the wallpapers as well. Sideloaded Pixel wallpapers

    Hi. Where is the 'Labs' option? Can't seem to find it in my Nova settings?
