APK Notes:

Google Now Launcher from the latest Android 5.0 preview image.

This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 1.4.large:

Upgrade the launcher on your Android device for a fast, clean home screen that puts Google Now just a swipe away.

Available on all devices with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or higher.

Key features:

• Swipe right from your Home screen to see Google Now cards that bring you just the right information, at just the right time.
• Quick access to Search from every Home screen.
• Say “Ok Google” to search with your voice, or tell your phone what to do: send a text message, get directions, play a song, and much more.
• A-Z apps list, with fast scrolling and quick searching of apps on your device and the Play Store.
• App Suggestions bring the app you’re looking for to the top of your A-Z list.

    Does this work with things under 5.0?

    • froasjd

      It works, but I don’t see any difference.

      • David Boyer

        A difference : Lollipop wallpapers !

      • there is just more material design

        • Total Faith

          I cannot see a real difference! I am at 4.4.2 KitKat. Any ideas why it does not look like the new material design?

          • You need the latest version of Google Search to get Material Design in the Google Now Launcher. Installing the Google Now Launcher simply only “extends” the Google Search app by adding the ability to act as its own home app if enabled.

          • Total Faith

            I have both, the newest “Google App” and the newest Google Now Launcher… There is no material design used when I open the app drawer…. Why is that so???

          • Since you’re using KitKat, which still uses Holo, it will use the built-in animations, and the ripple effect when you touch the app drawer button will not be present. But don’t despair if that transition effect really matters that much to you, there are custom launchers like Nova and Apex that has its own animation libraries to provide you that same, rich effect, which of course, needs no root.

            Thank you for the fast answer! I am already using the Apex Launcher ;)

          • Total Faith

            So… This means, it is impossible to get material design for the app drawer animation? Because it changed the way it opens, but very very strange…

          • Yeah, I’m afraid so…

    • Sohrab Ansari

      Yeah ! Minimum Android version: Android 4.1+

  • Alexander Mejía

    Need root?

    • Jonathan Stoos

      I would imagine not, but root is too much fun not to have, isn’t it??

  • maheen

    Can we change the icon in this

  • Faiyaz

    Well, some of u say will i need root? Is root that hard? Perhaps, no.
