What is the app grid?
Apps can be moved, arranged, removed, and even grouped on your phone screen in a variety of ways. You can accomplish this by dragging apps left, right, up, or down to specific locations of your choice. In any case, the app layout will be fixed in a row-and-column format. We call this the app grid.

Changing app grid on Android 12
It is possible that the default app grid of your Android 12 phone may not suit your needs or preferences. It would be possible to change the app grid to something else in this case.
As an example, if you change from 5×5 to 4×4, each phone screen will display 16 apps instead of 25.
More apps on your screen will result in smaller app icons. In contrast, fewer apps on your screen will result in larger app icons.
