A new update is rolling out to the Google Now Launcher, making it available to
just about all devices running Android 4.1+. That’s right, if you have been frustrated at the lack of compatibility for Google’s own launcher with top devices, you can finally relax.
For those new to the Google Now Launcher, think of it as the name suggests, a simple launcher that allows you to easily access Google Now. With the GNL as your launcher, Google Now can be accessed with a swipe from left-to-right. It’s also buttery smooth, gives that stock Android look, and has extra large icons for those needing a pixel explosion. To see it in action, check out Google’s new promo video for the launcher below.
The update just went live for all today, so go grab it.
Update: Google made the news official – all Android 4.1+ devices are supported.
