I could not find the way to set/change the default launcher in Android N (Nexus 6P). I think it is not there. Any help?

Changing the default launcher in Android O (as of 8.0 DP 1)

  • Go into the Settings app
  • Go to "Apps & Notifications"
  • Go to "Default apps"
  • Press "Home app"

Alternatively, you can just search inside the settings app for "Home."


Changing the default launcher in Android Nougat

  • Go into the Settings app
  • Go to "Apps"
  • Press the settings gear in the top-right (not the triple-dot)
  • Scroll down and press "Home app"

Alternatively, you can just search inside the settings app for "Home."

Changing the default launcher in Android (pre-KitKat 4.4)

You'll need a third-party app to change between home screens. One of the best ("Home Switch") is available here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.captainstu72.homeswitch

  • @TungD.Nguyen I realized my answer was incorrect and I remade the answer with the actual information. Sorry about that :|. So look at my answer again, it's right now. – owlswipe Jun 12 '16 at 23:28
  • Thanks! I found that the search function in my settings does not work. But your answer helps. – Tung D. Nguyen Jun 12 '16 at 23:34

  • I have never seen this "Home" option before. – user186920 Dec 7 '16 at 11:46
  • @MarkYisri On the bottom of the left image here: beebom.redkapmedia.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/… . There you can see Marshmallow has a setting for home while Nougat does not. – owlswipe Dec 7 '16 at 12:16

Installing another launcher will cause Android to ask you which one you want when you hit the Home button.
