    Google Now Launcher support appears to be coming to more devices | Android Central

    I'm puzzled by this article. Apparently the Google now her is now compatible with the M8. But don't I already have it? Is this describing where I swipe up on the home button and Google now shows? Or is this something else?

    This is something else, unless you have the Developer Edition M8, in which case yes, you already have this. But the added compatibility is now with non-developer phones, where you can use the Google Now Launcher as a Launcher replacement for your phone if you like the feel of 'vanilla' Android.

    A totally different launcher that puts Google Now on the furthest to the left screen. This would replace your Sense Launcher (but not the Sense UI in menus, notifications, etc) and/or Blinkfeed, if you're using that. It's similar to applying a custom launcher, like Nova Launcher.

    The app can be downloaded from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.launcher

    Strange, my M8 on Verizon was able to load it from Google Play and I'm running it now.

    Just checked again, now it says it will work. Which raises the question, do I want it. 😮

    I put it on my LG G3 for AT&T and no Calendar widgets are coming up. Any reason why?

    Don't see the point of it. I can activate Google now from any screen on my M8 anyway, even the locked screen. Sure you only have to slide up from the home button to see Google now cards

    It's not Google Now. It replaces your stock launcher, much like Nova or Apex, with Google Now built in. Just download and give it a try...

    Its now live in the play store for all M8's. I downloaded it played with it but ultimately I love blinkfeed especially with all the new updates it just received it is flawless.

    In the voice settings I can't set it Ok Google to activate from any screen or the lock screen, the options are greyed out ,so only works from the asearch app. Is that the same for everyone?

    I liked this launcher on my nexus 5 so gonna give it a run for a few days. Shane the HTC clock widget doesn't show up
