If you want the pixel launcher to work on your smartphone then you might like to read this post till the end. Initially, the launcher was exclusive for the pixel devices until AmirZaidi found a perfect replacement. Now the pixel launcher is not exclusive to the pixel devices any more. If you have a smartphone that runs Android 5.0 or higher than you can experience the launcher anyway. Apparently, the name has been revised to Rootless Launcher from Rootless Pixel Launcher and is available on the play store. The only problem here is that you need to download and install the Rootless pixel bridge app separately. The rootless pixel bridge provides full functionality of a normal pixel launcher which includes swipe right to get Google now page etc.
Just head towards the play store and install the Rootless Launcher here.
Also, download and install the Rootless Pixel Bridge here.
The Rootless Launcher works exactly like the pixel launcher and is snappy indeed. All the features are completely free and open source. To make the rootless pixel bridge to work just enable the same in the home settings. The app available on the play store features a search bar at the bottom, wallpaper based theme selection, regular icon packs, adaptive icon packs such as my Google icons and Icon shape selection on Android 8.0.
The new app changes a few things which include
- Remove Rootless Pixel Bridge installation code to conform to Play Store rules
- Replace icon with material design version (by @allstargaurav).
- Show launch shortcut in other launchers.
- Specify tablets are supported in the manifest.
So just hit the links and do the needful. Please do let us know how is your experience with the launcher.
