Nexus 5’s Google Now Launcher Made Available for All Nexus and Google Play Experience Devices

Feb 28, 2014

Google has made available their Google Now launcher, which was first introduced on the Nexus 5, available to all Nexus devices and Google Play Experience devices running Android 4.4 KitKat. This means that by downloading the launcher from Google Play, these devices get easier access to Google Now from the home screen with a swipe right action. As well, voice input is automatically on while in the launcher, making searching and voice actions easy to do. While this is only available for Google-sanctioned devices, it’s likely someone will figure out how to get this on any device. Just Google it!
