Delete ic_launcher.xml. Probably not the best answer but it works.

This worked for me!

if you are having 2 folders named as ic_launcher and ic_launcher_round

then you need to go to manifests directory,

inside that you will find AndroidManifest.xml file

in that you will find android:icon = "@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"

just set it to android:icon = "@mipmap/ic_launcher"

and you are good to go.

also i couldnt see the change on NEXUS 6 API 28 device. So i added NEXUS 5X API 15. then i could see my logo changed to the one we want.

you should not go for deleting any file.

let me know if this works for you.
