How to install Android 8.0 Oreo Pixel Launcher 2.1 without rooting device

Google made the interesting decision to reveal the final name and consumer launch details of Android 8.0. Such themes are said to be coming to Android Oreo so this means, root access is no longer needed. One of its laudable feature updates is the new Pixel launcher, which non-Pixel phone owners can now get. The tweet reads, "We're excited to bring Android 8.0 to the HTC U11, U Ultra, & 10, beginning with U11 in Q4". Oreo is pretty much the only choice for an "O" dessert that's broadly and instantly recognizable, however, so it seems like it was nearly inevitable.

The first from the list, HTC U11, now runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with HTC Sense UI atop, whereas HTC U Ultra now operates on Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC Sense UI atop.

Android Oreo also ships with more security features, including remote location, locking and wiping with Find My Device, and Google Play Protect, which scans for, detects and automatically deletes malicious apps on a daily basis. It also comes with improved notifications for apps and better battery optimisation. However, many enthusiasts were still not content with what was offered by stock Android and the variety of skins by different OEMs, so they opted to root their devices and make use of custom themes. As a result, the newly updated launcher can now be downloaded on more phones aside from the Google Pixel lineup.

As of now, few settings like the option to change the shape of icons and Google wallpapers are not seen on a few devices, hopefully, this might be rectified in the upcoming updates.
