    Works fine on my Nexus 5X with 6.0.1 marshmallow

    • Artjom Poznyak

      even swipe left for Google Now?
      because on my Nexus 6P with 7.0 this feature doesn’t work,
      though it’s activated in launcher settings

      • Johann

        You need to install it as System for swipe for ‘swipe left for google now’. I’ve done it like this and it works.

        • Artjom Poznyak

          So it works only if I root my phone?

          • Michel Nguyen

            You need to move the app to /system, so root (and a custom recovery like TWRP) is very useful for that :)

  • Matthew Fura

    Installed this as a System App on my 7.1.1 6P (to allow Google Now to work) and for some reason, the icon shortcuts don’t work with it. Anyone else have this issue?

    • Matthew Fura

      Moved it back to /data/apps and the Long press shortcuts still aren’t working. Any chance Google disabled that somehow?

      • Xenotrumpet

        Have you tried clearing app data for the launcher and/or the Google app?

    • shortcuts are working for me stock android 7.1.1 on nexus 5x. i have not moved it to system apps as i am not rooted :P i just install this as normal app.

    • samiazza

      Apps shortcuts works only with the default launcher, so in order to make it work with the Pixel Launcher, make this default launcher (Settings – Apps – Gear Icon – Home App)

  • FO M

    Does Pixel support double tap screen on off ?

    • Deku


  • Sattajata

    How do you make the weather widget appear in the top right corner?

    • Antonio Porras

      Give location permission to Pixel Launcher 😀

    • ZeroSen

      location permission and flash open gapps mini (or micro, i tested on mini and work), with open gapps pico pixel launcher doesn’t show weather widget

  • kavin pkt

    Pixel settings unfortunately closed issue. Any one have solution?!
    Remaining working fine.
    Am in Lollipop stock ROM.

  • Alex B

    I’ve downloaded several times to my 5x on developer preview 7.1.1 and I get an ‘error parsing package’. I have ‘unknown sources’ enabled and have also unlocked dev mode and enabled USB debugging which I’ve read can help but admittedly didn’t make any sense to me why it would work.

    Any suggestions?

    • manzs sinclair

      u have custom recovery ?? , email me at [email protected] , n i will send u the zip file to flash , then it will work

  • Kim Morais

    -It needs to fix a bug about the wallpaper. When the main screen is pressed then touch on the “wallpaper” set, pixel launcher just stops working.
    -The launcher doesn’t have the “Google Now Swipe” when it’s swiped from left to right.
    – There isn’t showing the weather on the top right corner of the screen, just day, month and year.

  • Tejasva Bansal

    It doesn’t works on Lenovo a6000

  • Harsh Joshi

    Says app not installed

  • Google has updated Pixel Launcher recently at October, 2017. But the release date of this apk is December, 2016. Why?

  • RizqElder

    Installed on my Huawei p9 and N6 and works fine, also got Google assistant working too, apart from swipe left Google now don’t work, I know it’s because I’m not rooted, not a big enough deal for me to root my phone though.

    • Nika Nik

      I have huawei p9 but I can not install it. Teach me how to set up

      • RizqElder

        Sorry didn’t see your reply you probably sorted it by now.

  • douglas ruopp

    How about download Nova launcher prime, you get everything 7.1.1 offers and more. Just go get the live pixel wallpaper apk and your done. I had an honor 8 looks like the pixel but better

  • Nika Nik

    Hello, I have huawei p9, and can not install this launcher, please teach me how to install it. thank you in advance.
