Hey Guys, in this post I will let you know how can you download and Install pixel launcher on your phone. When it comes to the matter of launchers most of the people don’t know what is an android launcher. Let me explain it briefly. Every Android phone requires Android Launcher app(default can also be called as built in app) to facilitate user for interacting with device features and other apps. Android Launcher provides easy interface between the user and the other apps. The more lighter the launcher is, the best experience a user can get from it. Android launchers are used to manage apps in a particular style(List view or Grid view), customize home screen, customize icons for different apps. We can use themes to customize even the notification drawer of our device.
Pixel Launcher is an android Launcher developed by Google for phones like pixel and pixel XL. These phones working Pixel Launcher are smooth and fast in accessing files and working with apps. We can customize several things in this launcher.
Features Of Pixel Launcher

- Swipe up to access the menu drawer.
- Bottom placed Google Search widget on Home Screen.
- Frequently opening apps are placed at top of your menu drawer separately.

About Pixel Launcher
I’ll discuss about Non-Root Mod in this article
This modded Pixel Launcher app doesn’t require your device to be rooted, but it will in need of a device which is having 5.0+ version of Android. I personally tested Pixel Launcher on Xiaomi MI 3S and the Google Pixel.
It runs smoothly on both the mobiles. But, for a group of people with required version android have concern about Launcher and Google Now Drawer in the app
When you download the app and tried to install it on your phone and get error message like installation failure or app failed to install then you’re going to be the unluckiest person who can’t use pixel launcher. In another case, If you got some luck and installed the app onto your phone,but experience some other small bugs which are reported by users of the ported Pixel Launcher then it might be fixed in the future updates rolling from the developer. The bugs may be of type crashing and Google Wallpapers app issue.
To overcome this error we need to install another app called Wallpapers which is developed by Google specially for Pixel Launcher. Wallpapers app consists material design and material design is supported in API 23 or higher.
If you are using Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL, then make sure that you have installed the different version other than Official release because this modded version is another app which is not considered as the same to the Google Now launcher that came as inbuilt on your phones so it won’t settle in. The “Modded” version installs as stock(Built in) to Pixel launcher.

My Review About Pixel Launcher
I don’t know why Google has rolled out Pixel Launcher as there is Google Now Launcher which is a super hit in the market of Android Launchers. There are so many fans for Google Now Launcher.
Releasing Pixel Launcher at this moment is strange but everyone started loving it.
Easy to use, simple UI, Google Now Drawer,bottom search bar and what not. Everything looks perfect in this modern day launcher.
“If you’re a Google Products Lover then Pixel Launcher won’t disappoint you.”
