The POCO Launcher, originally designed for the Pocophone F1, has gained popularity due to its advanced customization options. Now, its makers at Xiaomi have released a 2nd version, which can be downloaded and tried out now. It mainly improves on the app drawer and dark theme of this interface.

Launchers in Android are mainly used to determine the look, function and behavior of a given device's home screen. There is a wide range of options out there that can replace the one included with an OEM's skin for the OS if so desired. Then again, some 'native' launchers aren't too bad. One example of these is the POCO launcher designed by Xiaomi.

This launcher was originally developed to ship with the Pocophone F1, but can also be installed on other phones, such as the Mi Mix 3. With its flexible design and adaptability, it has been welcomed by users worldwide. Now, Xiaomi has completed work on a new version for this piece of software: POCO Launcher 2.0.

The OEM announced its availability on Twitter, inviting those interested in the launcher to download it and test it out. Its new features include an improved theme switcher, which particularly applies to the app drawer and allows the user to adjust its transparency. POCO Launcher 2.0 also includes improved app-grouping options, including a simplified way of adding new apps and of organising them within the UI.
