How to remove or delete app names on Android [Guide]

Is it possible to remove app icon names or labels on Android? The answer is simple, yes. However, such a thing isn’t possible if you just rely on your device’s default options for appearance and personalization. Now, what if you don’t have any advanced knowledge with regards to Android development? Simply put, you’re just aiming for better device aesthetics. Well, you can still make your app icons “label-free”. It doesn’t even matter whether they’re on your home screen or app drawer.

Now, here’s the catch. You will need to replace your device’s default home screen launcher in order for this method to work. Anyways, if you are still cool with this, feel free to proceed and follow the steps below.

So that’s it. The next time that you check the apps on your home screen, they no longer have those annoying text labels. The same goes to the apps that you have on your app drawer.

Just keep in mind that this method might not work on devices with older Android OS versions. If this is the case, then you can try using an alternative home launcher such as Go Launcher EX.
