Is there a way we can remove the white background that shows up forever behind the icons on Android. I read somewhere that Android 6 Developer options may provide that. If someone figured it out on Android 5, please advise.



This is very much possible, but you will require a custom launcher. For the sake of this, we'll use Nova Launcher.

  1. Install Nova Launcher and set it as the default when going back to your Home screen.

  2. Go to the "App & Widget Drawers" screen in Nova settings and scroll down to find the options shown in image. Make sure the switch for "Card background" is set to off.
