How to Get Pixel’s Home Button Animation on Nexus

In this guide, you will be able to learn How to Get Pixel’s Home Button Animation on Nexus : Both the Google Pixel and the Pixel XL are the latest offerings from Google, and while the insane pricing might just nod some heads away from it, it is no denying that the exclusive software features that come with it are totally exciting. While it is good to see a phone with unique features, it really sets off the people who had bought last year’s flagships from Google, the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X.

One such feature is the new home-button animation. While it literally does nothing  but display an animation every time you press home, it is yet an exciting look to achieve, and we will make it a piece of a cake for you. The mod is only available for two Nexus devices as of now – the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X. There are also separate files for the devices, thanks to the change in DPI settings. We highly recommend you don’t try to flash this on any other Android device. With that out of the way, let’s have a look on How to Get Pixel’s Home Button Animation on Nexus.
