The team behind Nova Launcher also finished five years of its efforts to making the app what it is, and to celebrate the milestone, a new version 5.0 update was rolled out with many features and improvements. The most prominent change was the 'swipe to open' drawer, similar to the one in the Pixel Launcher. It also brought the Pixel-like search bar, new settings, and shortcuts like the new Launcher Shortcuts seen with Android 7.1 Nougat.
