On pixels and other Android phones near inventory, the Google feed is built into the home screen, but unfortunately not in the OnePlus Launcher. Even more disappointing is the fact that the OnePlus Launcher has a built-in Google feed code that is not activated. Let us change that.
You do not need to change your default home screen to get the Google feed (also known as Google Now). Developers Stian Pedersen and HofaTheRipper have created a Magisk module that will allow you to replace the standard "Link Swap" (OnePlus "Shelf") action with the Google feed. It's a simple module that requires minimal set-up ̵
The Magisk module that activates the Google Feed for the OnePlus Launcher must be refreshed each time the Home screen app is refreshed. For compatibility, call the OnePlus Launcher's Play Store page from your phone .
Now tap "Uninstall" and click "OK" when asked if you want to uninstall updates from app. When finished, tap the three-dot menu button in the upper-right corner and uncheck the box next to "Enable automatic refresh." This ensures that the Google feed does not just disappear because of an incompatible update.
Step 2: Download the OnePlus Google Feed module  Now you need to select the Magisk module that activates the Google feed because it is not available in the Magisk Manager app. Once you have downloaded the file to your phone's memory, you can proceed to the next step.
Note: If you are using Android 10 and the following steps do not work, try downloading this version .
Step 3: Manually Install the Module
Because you downloaded the file yourself, you must install it manually. Open the Magisk Manager app to the main screen, tap the menu on the left, then go to the "Modules" section. Press the plus button below and locate the OnePlus Google Feed module. Tap once on the file to start the installation process. Then tap the "Restart" button to restart the device.
When you are back from rebooting, keep the button pressed blank on the start screen of your OnePlus Launcher. At the bottom, tap "Startup Settings" and then tap the "Leftmost Screen" option. From here, simply tap on the "Google App" option to replace the shelf function as the new default left-side brush on your home screen. As simple as that!
If you swipe left on the home screen, the Google feed will be displayed instead of the OnePlus shelf. Unfortunately, you can not have both at the same time, but the Google feed is commonly regarded as the more useful of the two.
