Nova Launcher Gets Google Now Integration – Download App APK



The Android OS support 3rd party launchers to change the UI of the device. Apart from the Google’s own devices, only very few manufacturers offer vanilla flavored Android with their smartphones. Apart from Motorola, none of the major manufacturers provides stock Android UI, and the skinned UI not only takes additional power from the device but also be confusing for few users. While I personally saw many Android users opting for 3rd party launchers to have stock Android UI, few also ditched the proprietary UI on their device for more customizations.

Talking about the Android launchers, Nova Launcher is one of the most popular launchers on Play Store with more 10+ Million downloads. While Nova Launcher brings new features much faster than others, it is missing the Google Now integration from a long time. The requirement for accessing the Google Now API are now changed and finally, Nova Launcher is now able to offer the Google Now panel. All the non-rooted Android smartphones running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above can install the Nova Google Companion app for adding the Google Now panel on their home screen.

This new Google Now integration is out of the list of restrictions made to the free version. According to Android Police, there are still few issues with this brand new feature, and we expect it to be fixed in the next update. To support the newly released Nova Google Companion app, the user needs to install the Nova Launcher 5.3-beta 1. You can download the latest beta app, and the companion app from the links provided below. Also enable the ‘install from unknown source’ from the system settings, if you face any error while installing the downloaded apps.
