One of the best parts of Android is the ability to customize your home screen. Now, a new launcher called Pixel Launcher is available for all to download, and it brings the Google Pixel’s home screen experience to any Android device. Now let us talk about this android app in detail.
Pixel Launcher for Android
The Pixel Launcher is Google’s stock launcher for the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, and the upcoming Pixel Phones. It is considered a successor to the Google Now Launcher. It has features like swipe up from your home screen to see personalized Google cards that bring you news and personalized information, and at a glance, you can view your upcoming calendar events and appointments.
It was first released on October 20, 2016, along with the Pixel series of smartphones made by Google. We can say that the Pixel Launcher is based on the official home screen used on Google’s new Pixel phones. It looks like a normal launcher, with an app drawer and app icons, but there are a few features that make it special. Here we have shared the list of new features added in Google Pixel Launcher’s latest APK
Pixel Launcher APK- Main Features
- Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the app drawer. A search bar will show at the top of the drawer, so you can quickly find apps without having to scroll through them all.
- With Google Now integration, you can get helpful information without opening an app. Swipe right from your home screen and see your agenda, news stories and more. You don’t need to be signed into any Google services for this feature to work — just swipe right on your home screen.
- A long-press on a blank area of your home screen will show some options for customizing it. You can select wallpaper or add widgets, change how many apps fit in each row or choose which apps should appear in or out of the app drawer.
In our testing of the Pixel Launcher, we found that this Launcher is fast and smooth. Obviously, Google knows a thing or two about making launchers. If you are ready for a change from what you have been using and love the Pixel phone’s launcher, give it a try for free.
