    Hi, I'm new to this forum so this might be posted in The wrong category.

    I'm also new with using launchers, but I don't really like tuochwiz on my S7 Edge so I downloaded the Google Now Launcher. But i found that there's no call/phone app, just a contacts app. As you can see in the attached pictures. Also none of The apps I've downloaded to the phone followed to Google Now launchers app drawer or homescreen.

    So does anyone knows how i can solve this, get a calling app and all the apps I've downloaded to touchwiz to come over to Google now?

    Nope, there's nothing in there, just the Google Search app.

    No, the only icon that shows up for me in the app drawer are the Google Search app as you can see in my first picture.

    So you have no access to any other apps in your phone?

    Uninstall, clear the cache from recovery, then reinstall.

    That's really strange - I also use the Now launcher (and have done that on pretty much every Android phone I've ever owned) and don't seem to have that problem. Do you use an SD card? Try formatting that, then re-installing the now launcher, emptying the cache and installing all updates. The only time I've had Android apps disappear on me was when I had apps installed on the card and then removed the card.

    Yeah I know, it's super weird. I haven't even put in a sd-card in it yet. Seems like the only way will fix it might be with a factory reset :/ since nobody seem to have had the same problem yet and have come up with a solution...

    After some research on other threads it would appear this is an issue caused by Samsung's KNOX software encryption. To disable KNOX completely search for KNOX in the play store and uninstall the app.

    More on a google thread can be found here: https://productforums.google.com/for...ch/hzWLtsueYCQ

    This would have been my advice. Backup and factory reset. Any results?

    Google launcher is so plain and boring. Nova launcher is amazing. So much customization! Ditch, Google and ditch touchwiz, Nova is the best.
