Pixel launcher was released back in 2016 with the Pixel devices. It only supports the Pixel and Nexus devices officially. But APK can be installed on any android device. Newsfeed doesn’t work if you install the APK. So one of the developers created a Rootless apk of the Pixel launcher that can be installed on every Android device with all the features.

Pixel Launcher is most popular launcher because it brings the minimalism and looks clean. This version of Pixel launcher brings many changes and bugs are fixed.

What’s Change?

  • Microphone icon shows under the same conditions as the real Pixel Launcher: when Now on Tap is in use
  • When no Google App is installed but Google Go is found, its search will be launched when clicking the search bar
