Why it issues to you

Google’s Pixel launcher is already considered one of its hottest, and should develop into much more so because of main modifications in an upcoming model.

The Google Pixel launcher is likely one of the extra in style launchers for Android, largely due to how easy and clear it’s, to not point out its emphasis on Google’s apps and companies. Now, we’ve got a second model of the launcher, which simply confirmed up at Google I/O — a little bit earlier within the yr than we anticipated. It’s additionally doable that somebody at Google tousled and it’s not purported to be on present on the occasion — however both manner, we now have a greater take a look at the course Google is taking with the Pixel.

A video of the launcher was taken by 9to5Google, and in the event you’ve used the earlier Pixel launcher, you’ll discover a couple of main modifications. For instance, the “G” tab on the left-hand aspect is not there — as a substitute, the search bar has been moved entrance and middle on the backside of the primary dwelling display screen.

It is sensible that Google would wish to make search a little bit extra distinguished. Whereas it was already very accessible, it did require a swipe to get to. Now, you may merely faucet on the search bar and begin looking out. Hopefully, customers will have the ability to transfer it round on the house display screen, as many individuals want having apps on the underside relatively than on the highest.

Within the demo, it appears as if the highest row of the house display screen is used for the date, which is centered and straightforward to see.

It will likely be fascinating to see if the launcher modifications at all around the subsequent few months earlier than the Google Pixel 2 is launched, or if we’re now a remaining model of it.
