Pixel Launcher (previously known as Nougat Launcher) is the launcher that will come installed on Google devices that use Android 7.0. The list of changes with regards to previous versions is not especially long, but you'll definitely notice some differences at just a glance.

The first thing you'll notice about Pixel Launcher is that the Google search bar has been noticeably reduced in size. While it used to take up practically the entire upper part of the screen, now it only takes up a small space in the upper left corner. In the upper right corner, you have a simple widget with today's date.

Another feature that stands out is the pull-down app drawer. Now you just have to slide your finger down from the lower part of the screen to open the drawer with all your apps. You just slide up again to close it.

Pixel Launcher offers a practical and attractive interface. Best of all, it offers it in a compact APK that takes up little more than two megabytes. Here's your golden opportunity to try out and play around with the new launcher from Google.

Unfortunately loads of users of even relatively modern phones haven't gotten the update to version 7.0, meaning the only way to get some of the new features is by installing external apps or using other tricks. (Or installing unofficial ROMs, but that's another story.) In the meantime, here's a summary of everything you can install on your device to make it look like Google Pixel, with the best graphics from Android Nougat (which they say are something like the Second Coming in terms of excitingness).
