Get The All New Google Nexus Launcher Here!

The Google Nexus launcher, which is rumoured to be present exclusively on the upcoming Nexus devices Sailfish & Marlin, has been leaked. No, it is not Evan Blass aka @evleaks this time, it is XDA Recognized Developer & Recognized Contributor BeansTown106, who got his hands on the exclusive launcher. In this post, we will tell you what's the fuss about this new launcher and we will guide you on how to install this launcher on your device.






One of the interesting changes this launcher incorporates is that the Google search bar has been replaced with Google icon. Right next to the Google icon, the clock is permanently fixed there along with the Google now icon.








Another notable feature is the absence of the app drawer icon. Google decided to do away with the app drawer icon and now if you want to access the app drawer, you can swipe up to access it.









Using the Daily New Wallpaper feature, you can automatically let the Google launcher to update your homescreen wallpaper everyday. This feature is similar to the the daily wallpaper change feature in Windows 10 unlocking screen.




The app drawer and widget picker are pretty much the same like the Google Now launcher (currently available in the Play Store) as shown below:

To access Google Now, you can swipe right from the first homescreen as shown below:





Long pressing on the wallpaper will get you into the launcher settings. Google does give us an option to enable or disable the app suggestions feature and swipe to access Google Now. The rotation settings were present in the Google Now launcher for Marshmallow too.
