More about Pixel Launcher
The Pixel Launcher gives you a first-hand experience of the Pixel phone from Google. The biggest feature of this launcher is the app drawer. Google has removed the app drawer. Instead, the user needs to swipe up from the home screen to view the list of apps. Also, the Google search bar is no more.
The Pixel Launcher is the rebranded version of the Nexus Launcher. And instead of the search bar, you have a Google button fixed at the top of the home screen which when tapped opens the search bar. With a fixed day and date widget towards the left of the Google icon which cannot be removed.
Download the Pixel Launcher
Using the Pixel Launcher you can individually configure whether app suggestions appear in the app drawer, plus a new feature that can let you add them to your home screen, replacing the persistent bottom row of apps. An option to block specific apps from appearing in suggestions is also present. But more or less it’s got more close to Google Now.
If you place a couple of apps into a folder, the Pixel Launcher will immediately suggest a folder name. For example, combining Google Messages and WhatsApp results in the name messages. The dock has been improved alot in the latest 2020 update of the Pixel Launcher and you will find alot of things have improved.
On the “dock” of the Pixel Launcher, you’ll have 5 apps listed. Now, if you remove one of those, Google will fill in the gap with an app it thinks you want to use. Long press on the home screen will take you to the wallpaper picker and widget settings so if you want to change any widgets then go ahead.
