Lack of customisation. Can't change App Drawer colour, icon size etc etc (all the usual customisations provided by launchers like Apex, Nova). And while I appreciate Google want you to use their search facility, I do NOT want to be forced to have that carbuncle of a search bar permanently fixed to my homescreen!
Great launcher on Nexus devices, but on Samsung S8 the drawer doesn't show any apps, I'm forced to switch back to the original Samsung launcher. Please fix it. Update: it seems that the Samsung Secure folder is not compatible with the Google Launcher, once you uninstall the secure folder, the app drawer starts to load all the apps.
Can't swipe stories, can't even swipe to that stupid news feed you added. Before you tried to copy newsfeed apps that literally no one wanted, I received weather, driving times and stock updates, now I have to click extra buttons and my stocks never show up. Ruined the best launcher. 1 star is generous.
It's great, fast, colorful and minimal. I do wish it could have fancier animated swiping but can live without. However, one thing I cannot live without is ORGANIZING APPS INTO FOLDERS in the app drawer!! I will probably switch to another launcher just for that feature but if you're OK with having folders ONLY ON THE HOME SCREEN then get this. (seriously though why folders only on home screen and not app drawer???)
Just bought a new Xiaomi Mi Max 2 with Android 711 and fully updated and patched it. But I am unable to use my favourite launcher on it. Mobile data just stopped working. I am also unable to put my EPIM calendar widget on my home screen. Google launcher crashes everytime I try it. Had to revert to the default Miui.
This stupid app is driving me crazy. First, the name. Is it called google launcher or google now? Also, when I say, "ok google' nothing happens. Sometimes it works, but most of the times it doesn't do anything but frustrate me. I am very disappointed..
