You can now get Android O's Pixel launcher on your supported device

Last week, Google held its annual I/O Developer Conference. While there weren't any new hardware announcements, it was clear that the firm was focused on making their existing and future devices better through enhancements of its software. Although its latest edition of Android was announced in March, it wasn't until last week that it was available as a beta.

Since the beta is only available on a handful of handsets, the chances for most to experiment or even experience it are fairly low. Luckily, linuxct from the XDA Developer forums has taken the time to port the Android O Pixel Launcher, so that it can be installed on compatible devices.

If interested, you will need to make sure that your device is capable of installing unknown sources and running Android 6.0.1 or higher. You can enable the installation from unknown sources in the security settings menu. Once enabled, you can download the APK from the XDA source link down below and run the file. If you find any issues, be sure to leave feedback on the forums, it will help improve future iterations of the launcher.
