Like how the OnePlus Oxygen OS looks? Now you can get the OnePlus Launcher APK extracted from the OnePlus phones running Oxygen OS. No root needed to install this Oxygen OS Launcher APK!
When the OnePlus One was launched, OnePlus relied on the CyanogenMod team for the software. CyanOS, which is a commercial fork of CyanogenMod custom ROM ran on the OnePlus One. Then a lot happened and Cyanogen had a fallout with OnePlus. Thanks to that, we now have the OxygenOS.
OxygenOS is probably one of the most polished and most underrated Android Skins out there at the moment. It is close to stock, well optimized and also comes with basic customization options which the actual AOSP Android is still lacking. With the customization, also comes a launcher, OxygenOS OnePlus Launcher, which is lightweight but also comes with minimal theme options.

One of the signature features of the OnePlus Launcher is the ‘Shelf’ option. This is a screen where you get, sort of, a summary of your recent items and also a place where you can add and manage widgets as well. All you recent contacts, recent apps show up here.

Another important feature of the OnePlus Launcher is the support of Icon Packs, which is not available in most of the stock Android Launchers.
