Google Now Launcher officially available for Android devices running v4.1 or higher

The very-useful-yet-sometimes-spooky Google Now Launcher is now available to all Android devices, the only condition being that you should be on Android v4.1 Jelly Bean or higher.

The launcher first came out with the Google Nexus 5 last year, but had since been made available for GPE devices on Android v4.4 earlier this year. Of course, Android users did the evergreen side-load trick to use it on non-compatible devices, but that’s something you won’t have to do anymore.

The Google Now Launcher allows you to access the Google Now service right from the homescreen. All you have to do is swipe right to get to the Google Now screen and you’re good to go. It also comes with some cool functionality, including hotword detection and offline speech recognition among others.

Download the Google Now Launcher for your Android v4.1 or higher phone via Google Play.
