The developers seem to pay attention to it, too, and they've just released a bit of a redesign on the beta channel for users to give feedback on.

Action Launcher updated to v28 with support for new adaptive icon pack

Action Launcher developer Chris Lacy has seemingly made it his goal to get as many Oreo features as possible working in his launcher. We've already got notification dots and free access to the Pixel-style features of the app. Now, Action Launcher v28 (previously in beta) is rolling out with support for a new companion app—an icon pack.

YouTube for Android TV 2.01.04 update brings back brand accounts and channel switching [APK Download]

The update to version 2.0 ushered in some major changes to YouTube for Android TV. Many of them were superficial, but there were also useful things like being able to turn off autoplay.
