You can now download Android Q Launcher APK for Android devices. This latest Pixel Launcher has been directly pulled from the latest Android Q beta release for Google Pixel phones. Google is still working on the next iteration of their mobile platform, but the updates have already started trickling down to the beta users and a lot of new features have been identified.
Pixel Launcher was previously known as the Google Now Launcher, but a couple of years back with the launch of the very first Google Pixel phone – this launcher changed into the Pixel Launcher. Google brought in new features which were exclusive to the Pixel lineup only. However, several ports are available online which allow you to run this launcher on other Android phones too.
