APK Notes:

Pulled from Android M Preview 3

Upgrade the launcher on your device to make Google Now one swipe away. From your primary home screen, swipe right to access Google Now cards that give you just the right information, at just the right time.

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

Key features:

• 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 favorite 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's stored on your device, or in the cloud. Position and preview your wallpaper before you set it.

Some features are unavailable in some areas.

This release may come in several variants. Consult our handy FAQ to see which download is right for you.

    Vertical app drawer???

    • Billy Hole

      No, just new wallpapers

    • Greg

      Nope, still need to swipe sideways, one by one. Uninstalled straight away.

  • Billy Hole

    Thanks for new Google now launcher, living new wallpapers

  • Nikhil A

    Any one plz upload the google arm.apk from the M preview 3 for vertical app drawer.

    • Can’t because:
      This M preview 3 APK is missing libraries and should not be distributed due to likely crashes.

      • Adrian Vovk

        You can… It’s called root…

        • OMG… Really??? How can I root apkmirror page???
          He asked for upload, I answered him why is not possible to upload it here…

        • That information about missing libraries is from apkmirror web, so no one can’t upload google app apk file from M3 here. So, if you can root apkmirror web, please upload apk ;)

          • Adrian Vovk

            He asked if anyone can uploaded and you said no because it is missing a few libraries and would crash on your device. With root you could just install those libraries. So why can’t anyone upload the file like they did with the last 2 previews without any libraries???

          • As I wrote… That message is from apkmirror web, when you try to upload Google App file to apkmirror you will get that message… If you don’t believe me, try it yourself…

          • Edit: screenshot…

  • sivajithee

    does “OK Google” voice detection works in this version?

    • Boteman

      Yess :)

  • Dutchy

    m3 preview no long scrolls vertically for the app drawer?

    • Adrian Vovk

      Actually it still does… It’s the Google app that changes that not Google now Launcher (basically allows you to actually view the launcher AND provides the wallpapers

  • Marty

    What’s different? I don’t see anything different.

  • Rahul Jhala

    It looks same in Samsung Galaxy grand , no sign of Android M , even app drawer is the same as Android L.

    Is there anyone who is facing the same issue?

  • Barney Alpert

    The APK for the Google App version needs to be downloaded to get the verticle drawer and widget. Only Now on Tap works on Marshmallow 6.0. I already have downloaded this version.
