Back in February Google released the Google Now Launcher on Google Play for its Nexus and Google Play Edition devices running Android 4.4 (KitKat). Now, Google has released the Google Now Launcher for all devices running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or higher. Now, users can directly access Google Now from the home screen.
Even though, the Google Now Launcher is mostly a stock experience, there are a few very nice extra features, which are focused on Google Now. Also you could side-load Google Now launcher APK on other devices, but the Google Play app would offer you instant updates.
One of the best features about the launcher is that users will now be able to use the "OK Google" command from any of your homescreens to automatically trigger voice commands.
