Earlier in the year, the developer behind Nova Launcher released version 7 of the beloved launcher app in beta form, but it wasn’t made available via Google Play. It was only usable via sideloading the app. This week, the Nova Launcher 7 beta has hit Google Play, and with it, there are lots of goodies to play with.
Along with this news, an updated changlog.
