Due to the limitations of Stock android it is impossible to change icons on Android without having a third party Launcher. Most of the stock launcher of Android like Touchwiz, Sense and even the Google Now launcher doesn’t have a feature to change the Icons, so I’ve made a simple list of launchers which allows you to change the icon packs.

List of Launcher in which you can change Icons

  • Nova Launcher
  • Aviate Launcher
  • Apex Launcher
  • Go Launcher
  • Next Launcher
  • Solo Launcher
  • S launcher

Just to make it short an simple I’ve not mentioned all the launcher but almost all popular launchers which you might have already installed or may have used it. After downloading the Launcher, download the icon pack which you want to apply on your Smartphone. For the steps here I’m using Nova Launcher.


  • Once you have download any of the launcher above and have an icon pack installed, go to “Launcher Settings
  • Then Scroll Down to “Look and Feel

  • You’ll see an icon option, you’ll see the list of all the icon pack you have.

  • Select which ever you want and hit okay


  • Open the Icon Pack, you have downloaded.

  • Go to “Apply”, you’ll find a list of launchers in that screen.

  • Scroll Down to one which you have and which is supported.
