Hey guys I just updated a couple of apps with the latest daily build and noticed the icons have changed to a very small icon within a white circle on my device 'pixel2' Have been noticing a
few apps icons are showing this. Did a bit of googling and found it has to do with the way Google is changing the icon designs. Here is a similar post in unity.

https://forum.unity.com/threads/android-putting-my-unity-game-icons-in-a-white-circle-but-not-all-of-them.501592/
there is an image in there to illustrate the icon with white circle.

Is this something corona can fix or get an update to allow us to use adaptive icons?

Cheers

Just for comment. I think I solve this issue looking in my Galaxy Tab A settings an option to show the icons with o without the white border. I don't know if pixel 2 have the option.

@dodi_games I don't think that's the issue, most people might not go to their settings to do so, and our apps icons won't stand out like the ones that have adaptive icons do. So might have less people tapping the icon to play our games. Which might in turn affect rankings.

Awesome thanks Vlad's and Rob.
I was reading a bit on them, actually looks pretty cool the fact you can have 2 layers on the icon with parallax effect

Corona, is one of the most useful and easy to use apps for both mobile as well desktop systems. A developer can create various applications over Corona specially gaming apps based on Android as well as iOS. Android app developers specially emphasis on Corona in order to learn and get command over android app development.

Hey guys I know in being a pain in the butt on this one, but any updates when this might happen? The new pixels will come out soon and it would look nice to have adaptive icons as opposed to the white circles with tiny icons inside

Just a +1 in support of this!

 

We've received some comments from Android 8 users and want our apps to look as good as possible on Google's flagship phones.

Any updates on this?

If there is no way to implement the adaptive Icons, is it possible to force the old icon, without the white circle?

Any updates on this guys?  Unity already supports this.  Our app icons are looking pretty lame against our Unity competitors...

Clearly the engineer is waiting for a stack overflow post so he can copy it! ;)

Unfortunately we hit some roadblocks in our build system with trying to bring adaptive icons to our builds

That's the hope: we're re-doing android build system, which should solve this issue, among many issues plugin developers have. But as a consequence, it will take some time.

Just a small note: if you keep the background of your icon transparent and make so the elements of the inside of your icon float. It actually doesn't look terribly bad.

 

cuadros 2 icon is mine:

Some more experiment for my icon. I didn't like how the icon looked on non-pixel launcher. So I just made it bigger. For me, this is a very acceptable compromise.

On Microsoft Launcher (my favorite easy for an old man to find things):
