My experience with Lawnchair 14 Beta 2

I installed the Lawnchair Beta 2 when it was released. I tried this on my Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. The launcher feels smooth. The animations in some parts are broken, for example the return to home from an opened app. It’s not the launcher’s fault, but with custom skins like One UI, these animations have not been working for the last few years. Apart from that, it is one of the best experiences I have had with a launcher. There are tons of customization options. There is a Material You look throughout the settings, and it gives a very close vibe and look to the Pixel Launcher’s appearance.

While Lawnchair supports Android 13 or below, certain features exclusive to Android 14 might not show up in these Android versions. A notable example will be the taskbar, which won’t show up on Android 12 or below. While rooted users will be able to enjoy Lawnchair with QuickSwitch, it leaves most of the users in the dust when talking about Launcher-Recents animations.

QuickSwitch is one of the headline additions as it has been supported for a while but it works much better with Android 10 to Android 14 devices. This allows for customizations for the Recents app switcher while helping you retain smooth animations and transitions.

Global Search is yet another neat addition brought along by Lawnchair 14. When Lawnchair 14 is set as the default launcher, you’ll be able to easily find contacts, settings, files, internet, and more. This is usually available only on the default stock launcher, which makes this such a great addition.

Lawnchair 14 also includes numerous theming options, with the option to hide the Dock, enhanced font support, custom icon shapes, and more.

We hope this helped you know more about Launcher 14 Beta 2 update going live. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to mention them in the comments section.
