Pixel Launcher is a special launcher that only worked on Google Pixel Smartphones. Earlier, attempts have already been made to port this application to other devices, but nobody has been able to fully restore its functionality. Some features of Pixel Launcher simply did no work while ported it on other smartphones.
The developer with the name AmirZaidi decide to tackle this app. He decompiled the pixel Launcher and neatly transferred all the code that implements its proprietary chips to the freely distributed AOSP launcher3. As a result, a complete working copy of the Pixel smartphone shell was obtained.
Everything works in the program: the transition animation, weather widgets Google Now Page, application menu and so on. But the most important thig about this is, it does not require any superuser rights/ root access. Thus, the owner of almost any smartphone will be able to use the new Pixel Launcher.
For obvious reasons, the developer was unable to place his Application on the Google Play Store. Therefore, you can download the installation file on the project page in GitHub. Here you can see the source code to make sure it’s safe.
