Get the Pixel 2 Launcher on your Android

The stock AOSP launcher has always been the benchmark for simplicity and functionality on Android. Light, lean and with just the bare essentials. After the launch of the Pixel 2, we were all treated to the new launcher. Very clean with the Google Search bar at the bottom and a new At A Glance widget.

If you want to try the new Pixel Launcher on your device – regardless of whether it’s a Pixel, Nexus, or other OEM-made phone – you can grab the APK file from APK Mirror: Pixel Launcher P-4275643. But remember that you’ll need to install it as a system app on non-Pixel devices to get the Google Feed on the leftmost screen.

If you don’t have a rooted device, you will need the modified apk that adds tons of features over the original apk. You get a dark theme, the Google Now page to the left and a few other tweaks.
