The release date of Pixel 2 is next Thursday that’s October 19, and until then sure you won’t be having it. But there’s something you can do that will just require 30 seconds of your schedule and an Android Smartphone, and after that pretend like you have the newest flagship of Google. Thanks for releasing the default Pixel 2 launcher that helps you do so.
The Pixel 2 launcher works with any kind of Android phone that run on the 5.0 version and above, which is anything but less than 3 years old basically. The launcher file is small with only 2.5 MB as there’s not much running under the hood. While installing the launcher just remember to install it as a system application. Installing it as a system application makes Google feed appear when you swipe left, else the app will not have permissions to make it work.
The app that you can download from an unofficial mirror via this download link that’s the default new launcher for the Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 2. The grand change in this is the new search bar of Google that’s located at the screen bottom, and also has a new glance widget. Apart from these it’s just effectively similar to the previous Pixel launcher. Either way it’s no doubt way better than anything that you’re operating right now.
For those who want to get their hands on the new and original Pixel 2 before its release it, you can pop at one of the retail locations of Google in LA or NYC, or right now you can head to a Verizon corporate store. The Google retail locations and the Verizon stores they have all the models of Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 2mon display. They also have all other new toys that Google announced beside the new Pixels.
Despite Pixel 2 is exclusively Verizon, yet you don’t need to be a Verizon customer if want to have one. You can get the Pixel 2 directly from the Google that’s available unlocked.
