LG G5 pre-orders in UK
The Home and app drawer feature available for LG G5 LG

LG is rolling out an update that brings the Home and app drawer feature which was missing in the flagship handset LG G5, for which the company was widely criticised. Before LG's flagship could go on sale, the company introduced the new version of its mobile user interface LG UX 5.0 based on Android's latest Marshmallow for the LG G5 users as well as for upcoming handsets.

One of the features LG confirmed as part of its latest user-centric UX is the Home screen with the app drawer. The company also released a video for UX 5.0 detailing the Home & app drawer.

Surprisingly, after the market roll-out of the device, the feature was still missing in retail units. The app drawer was available on UX version 4.0 for older LG phones and there was a workaround for G5 users who wanted to have an LG launcher with an app drawer. They had to simply download the UX 4.0 launcher from the LG SmartWorld.

However, now users do not have to downloading the older version of the UX as LG's latest update bundles the functionality, Droid Life reported.

If you are using an LG G5, head over to Settings>> About phone>> Update Centre>> App Updates and you would see the option to download. Under Apps Updates screen, you should see updates for Home and app drawer from where you can choose the new home screen layout. Once you tap the home button on the phone after installing updates, you will be prompted to choose a default home screen that includes the Home and app drawer option.
