That's what I assumed. Bummer

I almost never use the google search bar on the bottom of Pixel launcher. I wish there was a way to remove that and gain a row of icons.

Phone working better? Sucks you need to do the watch setup all over again

Nova launcher with a Google Now apk is almost identical to stock Pixel, but better in some ways. Might consider staying with Nova after I get my pixel back.

I feel like the stock apk is going to be more reliable as a backup, so I'll probably never switch. At least not when I'm using a 3yr old phone

Big things for me were getting rid of the huge search bar at the bottom and being able to resize icons and change the padding
