    Has anyone tried sideloading the new Google now launcher & are you having any issues?

    I have been using it for almost a month and have had zero problems no lag and everything works great

    I also have loaded it and really like the ability of "ok Google" from every home screen. It's great while driving and more intuitive than my Acura hands-free.

    I sideloaded it this morning and it crashed on me while I was setting up my homepages. Then I uninstalled it and tried to reinstall it and now it tells me I have to upgrade my Google Search first. But my Search is up to date. Not sure what's go to on

    This would be on a rooted phone correct?

    Nope. You don't have to be rooted to get the Google Now launcher.

    I installed the Google Now launcher on my wife's Moto X when she received it a couple months ago. It works perfectly! In fact, I don't even think she knows that it's not stock.

    So I finally download the apk one more time but this time when I got the error about my search needing to be updated I just hit the home button and made the Google launcher the default home and seems to be working fine now. I had it glitch back to the stock launcher once but I just hit the home button again and it went back to the Google launcher.

    Do I need to have a Google play edition to do this?

    Nope, just need the .apk and an apk launcher tool from the play store. you can switch back and forth, or select one as a default. I use it and love the fact that i can say "ok google" from any screen

    Very nice! Glad I found this. Wish it let me turn BlinkFeed off and set my homescreen though. Being able to say "ok Google" on any screen totally makes up for it.
