It has been a long time now since Google released Android KitKat 4.4. One of the most exciting feature about the new version is the transparent look with a Google Search bar on the home screen that can listen to the hot word “OK Google”and Google Now on the left side of the screen. This feature is in KitKat 4.4 because of the Google Now Launcher that was integrated into the operating system. Google has released the Google Now Launcher on the PlayStore but the catch in that release is that it only available to 4.4 based devices. But recently thanks to developers at XDA forum have released the Google Now Launcher version that can be installed on devices running 4.1.2 and above. So if you got any of the Android devices running minimum 4.1.2 with the latest Google Search application, you can try the Google Now Launcher that can be downloaded from here!
How to install:
- Download the zip file.
- Transfer it to you phone using data cable or bluetooth or wifi.
