All around awesome Go launcher is really well made, it streamlines a lot of the phone and having google now more readily available is convenient. I have noticed some issues though, I have a Samsung s7 and my Samsung themes don't work with this app launcher, most likely since they're system apps, however, the last time I updated my phone they did change for the launcher. It would be nice if Google could fix this issue and not hope that there is an update in order to get the themes I want
Great Launcher Customising text, icon size, app drawer background etc. would be very welcome. Changing the app drawer background to black as opposed to white would probably aid in using less battery power too. The iOS Google now app works better than this one. If I scroll to the bottom to open "more stories" before opening an article in the app or Chrome, when I go to Google now I'm forced to start again from the 1st page and scroll through everything to continue looking at articles that appear after the last one I read.
Quick, Intuitive Google Experience A launcher for those who are happy with their stock Android operating system. Swipe right for cards and that's about it. The result is one of the best launchers that you can get for both high-end and cheaper Android phones. I wish that swiping up from home would open cards on lower-end devices, instead you have to hold the home key. It relies on personal data and your preferences heavily to deliver a wide variety of Google services. Small, tidy, and packs a punch.
Does the job, and does it well. All the other fancy launchers like Nova, Go, Hola, Arrow, Aviate and the rest may have a better interface and countless customisations but Google Now Launcher is free and Ad - free at the same time. After using this for a while I am not able to go back to the stock launcher or any other launchers. It is simple. Everything is where it should be. Microsoft's Arrow and Nokia's Z launcher are so basic they should not even be in the 'beta' phase, just short of falling apart. Yahoo's Aviate is a decent attempt.
Honestly, I think this is a good launcher. It's basic launcher on my Moto G4 and i'm very pleased with it. It's fast, fluid and easy to organise. As a former Samsung user, it took me a little bit to get used with the menu. I'd enjoy if Google could modify the Now Launcher a little bit, in the Samsung style, but only because i'd like to arrange the icons in the menu as i please. Still this ain't a reason for me not to give 5 stars. I'm very satisfied with it and I'd recommend it to whoever thinks about using it as their base or additional launcher.
Great on the 5x Excited about the integration of hardware and app software along with marshmallow. Just a few things...BIGGEST ISSUE no way to hide apps! Also, please enable voice function of Google services on phones and tablets to transfer music or video to Chrome cast "ok Google, cast my music/video to (name of cast device)". Maybe get "ok Google" voice search for Netflix and other streaming video services. And make the "ok Google" voice recognition totally customizable, I tried recording "Hey Google" and had no luck.
