Google releases stock Android launcher to all Android handsets

Android, Google


If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy, HTC or an LG Android phone then you’re getting an Android experience, but perhaps not the exact one that Google intended. If, however, you’d like to get a taste of what Nexus users have, then now you can simply download the Google Now launcher from the Google Play Store.

In addition to the different look and feel, the launcher also brings Google Now to other handsets. If you swipe left, you’ll see Google’s “Cards” showing information it deems most relevant to you (eg, how delayed your train is, the weather, etc), and Google’s voice search functionality.

You can grab it now over on the Play Store
