    Sajo is patient AND extremely helpful.
    I'm limping along in an oldie, but you should be able to go into settings > system > developer options.
    Good luck!

    It's a little different on newer phonea.

    Settings > System > About Phone > find the Build Number > tap Build Number 10 times rapidly. You should see a pop-up message that you are now a developer. Reboot / restart and you will have Icon Shape options in your Launcher / Home app Settings as discussed earlier.

    And FYI...this is not new to 9.0 Pie as I read in a Google search yesterday. I had to re- setup my Z2 Force this morning to resolve an issue with my Google account & my Chromebook. Out if curiosity I checked for App Icon Shape and it was not there, and that is on a Z2 running Oreo 8.0. As soon as I enabled Developer Options on my old Z2 Force the app icon shape option appeared. So this changed before Android 9 Pie, at least in the Moto Launchers.

    It's all good. A lot of the Settings options changed again with 9.0 Pie.

    I'm wondering if I had to do that back when mine was new. Been too long -- can't remember.
    How are you liking the phone @Sajo? I'm still on the fence. Need something, but just not feeling the excitement with the 4....

    I like it a lot. Nice screen, I really like the full screen display. I have had no issues with the in screen fingerprint sensor. And battery life has been really good so far. Like I mentioned previously... I don't like the rounded edges and the silly way Style Shells look. That's my only dislike. But as I mentioned I see this as my "transition" phone, transitioning back to Gorilla Glass and phones in a case. So a new phone for $299.....I like it a lot.

    I'm going to miss the "talk to me" ( or whatever it's called) and the unbreakable force. I guess I'll need to get back into the paranoid groove of being extremely careful, but the hands free ability while driving is going to be rough.

    True, it is a bummer. I forgot about that. So two dislikes. But Talk To Me is totally software so there is always a chance it could be re-added. Slim chance....very slim....but.....

    I'm doing my research and trying to figure out which direction to go. The price is right, but..... I dunno. My phone is about ready to tap out with a very full internal storage, so I've got to do something within the next few months. I want to be excited and I'm not. Find something really cool to brag about,Sajo, so I'll jump in
