Get Pixel Navigation Bar on OnePlus 3/3T (with Animation)

4

If you have been paying attention, you would have probably noticed how the navigation bar is redesigned in the latest Google phones Pixel and Pixel XL. Unlike the old hollow navigation bar icons, the new icons are filled with a solid white color. And to make it even more interesting, there is a cool new animation whenever you press the home icon. Long pressing the home icon (to call up Google Assistant) has a new animation as well. It’s good to see Google paying attention to detail in even the smallest of things, really.

I own a OnePlus 3 and every single day the developers are giving me a new reason to love it even more. Oh yeah, one more awesome mod has popped up today for our beloved OnePlus 3! And with my lengthy intro about the Pixel navigation bar above, you would have probably guessed what the mod is all about. Yes, the new mod helps you get the latest navigation bar from Pixel, complete with animations and all. Ain’t that awesome! Let us take a moment and thank the XDA Forum member jassycliq, who has brought us this one awesome mod.
