Google Pixel 2 Launcher now available to Download

Google's brand new Pixel 2 also came with a new version of Pixel Launcher and if anyone of you was hoping to get their hands on that kind of UX, your prayers have been answered.

So, what's new in Pixel Launcher 2.0, or whatever you want to call it? Fortunately, you don't have to have wait any longer or have a Pixel device.

The APK weighs in at around 2.52 MB and can be downloaded from the below link. Aside from the search bar now occupying the dock, instead of the upper portion of the home screen, there's a new, bouncy animation when opening/scrolling the app drawer, as well as an "at a glance" widget that displays upcoming events and reminders. It also includes the animated Clock app icon, which now shows the actual time.

The only new area in the launcher settings is the At A Glace widget. The feature can be toggled on and off. Further, the At a Glance widget remains in the homepage itself whereas the Google Search Bar is displayed on all the pages. The new Pixel launcher is now available for download from APKMirror and can be installed on any smartphone running Android 5.0 Lollipop or above. If you are running another device, you can still install launcher. Better yet, it's based on an APK file that you can install just like a regular app - no root required.
