Get the Google Now Launcher now!

The Google Experience Launcher –now called the Google Now Launcher– has finally made its way to the Google Play Store.

There’s a quick list of some features:
  • Google Now is a part of your home screen. After activating it in the launcher settings, you simply swipe left of the main home screen and it’ll be there waiting for you.
  • Saying “Okay, Google” while on any home screen should automatically open the voice search for everyone.
  • Instead of a pop up box, long pressing the home screen allows you to add widgets, wallpapers, or enter the launcher settings.
  • A larger viewing area thanks to translucent status and navigation bars (where supported).
  • It is only available currently for Nexus devices and Google Play Experience devices. Unfortunately, we don’t know when it’ll be available for everyone.
