As we all know, Lawnchair is the most close launcher to the Pixel launcher along with the many customizations and combinations when we look for a launcher. They had support for QuickSwitch(recents provider) on Android 11 and 12. But after the release of 12L, they didn’t update for a long time. But now here we are, they officially announced that they released a version that works in Android 12L! We will show you afew screenshots of how it looks alongside with how to install it with the recent provider support.

So as you can see, it’s pretty same as the old one it seems like, but with newer Android 12.1 styled UI alongside with some new features such as adding share and screenshot button to the recents screen. To install it, read the guide below.
Lawnchair installation guide
You definetly need Magisk of course, along with the full root access. It’s not hard to install Lawnchair, it just takes quite a few steps. Follow the proccedure below.
- Download QuickSwitch Magisk module, as it’s required to be able to set the Lawnchair as recents provider.

Now you have Lawnchair installed on your device along with gestures, animations and recent support, which is just like stock launcher on Android 12L. Please be aware that it might conflict with any else modules if you have, as some of the modules are known to break other modules. So we recommend you to take a backup before doing anything.
