You already know how awesome Android is at customizing your device. Be it changing the wallpaper, ringtone, theme, buttons, LED notification light or icons, everything is possible on Android.
Talking about icons, in case you didn’t know, you can change the icons on your device with the icon packs. Icon packs are cool and give a new look to your device. Icon packs are apps, like any other app on the Google Play Store but instead of adding any new functionality, they replace the default boring icons on your device with the customized icons based on your liking.
However, you cannot use the icon packs directly on default launchers as most of them do not support the icon packs, you have to install a 3rd party launcher first. Here is our detailed guide on how to use and apply icon packs using 3rd party launchers.
