Google has great news for the fans of Google Now. The company has just made available their Google Now Launcher for all Android devices running 4.1 or later.
The Google Now Launcher gives you a home screen that’s clean, simple and customizable. One swipe leads to Google Now cards, bringing you the right information at just the right time. Tapping the search box or saying “Ok Google” lets you ask a question or search the web. And of course, you can easily add your favorite apps, widgets and wallpaper.
• Google Now on your home screen – it’s easier than ever to get just the right information at just the right time.
• Just say “OK, Google” – when you’re on your home screen, just say OK, Google to trigger voice input. Then say your search query. Or tell your phone what to do, like send a text message, get directions or play a song.
• Faster search – tap the search box and you can enter your query immediately.
• Easy access to your favourite Google products and services, like Gmail, YouTube and Maps.
• Larger viewing area – the status and navigation bars are now translucent, so your wallpaper pops from every pixel, and is even visible when you expand your apps drawer (when supported by device).
• Intuitive wallpaper picker – select any image that is stored on your device, or in the Cloud. Position and preview your wallpaper before you set it.
