With the release of the Google Now Launcher on the Play Store, most Android users have been left jilted. The coolest thing to hit Android this week is best readily available for Nexus and Google Play version devices. if you don’t have one of those, yet still wish the launcher, fret not. It can be done.
It’s as a matter of fact fairly easy, too. First, you’ll want to get into your settings and permit apps external of the Play store to be loaded. To do that, you go to Settings > Security. From there, you’ll see a heading called “Device Administrators”. below that, you’ll see “Verify Apps”, which has a tidy little explanation of what it’s about. Enable that one, and you’re halfway there. The second thing you’ll want to do is make positive you’ve got the most recent version of Google Search enabled on your device, which is variation 3. 2. 17. 1009776. if you don’t, go ahead and hit the Play Store and check for an update, but we’re sure you’ll have it already. It’s pretty much Google’s stock and trade — literally. Third, you’ll want to find an APK file for the new Google Now. they’re obtainable via several sources, with DevHost and Android Police being two sought after sources. We’ve no longer heard of any issues just yet with this, so go ahead and give it a shot.
