Implementing Circular Icons

Circular launcher icons are supported in Android 7.1.1 and later. Circular launcher icons are not enabled by default. To use circular icons in your device implementation, you must edit the resource overlay on your device to enable them.

The resource file you are using an overlay on is at: frameworks/base/core/res/res/values/config.xml

To enable circular icons, change the config_useRoundIcon setting in your overlay file from false to true:

<!-- Flag indicating whether round icons should be parsed from the application manifest. -->
<bool name="config_useRoundIcon">true</bool>
