How to Change Name of Icon on Android?

Launcher apps have the functionality of changing the icon name.

Here, I’m using the Nova Launcher app.

Using this app, you can change the name of the icon on the home screen and app drawer.

Remember that the following steps work on both rooted and non-rooted Android devices. Let’s see the steps.

Steps to Change the Name of the Icon

Long press the icon in the app drawer or home screen.

You can see the “Pencil” icon or “Edit” option. Hit it.
