Google Now Launcher’s discontinuation
Google is finally shutting out the Google Now Launcher after 10 years. As first reported by 9to5Google, Tech Giant Google is finally announced Google Launcher’s dicontinuation by completely shutting down its Google Now Launcher from April 2023. After dicontinuation, your launcher will change to your device’s default launcher.
Launched in 2014, Google Now Launcher has been one of the most popular launchers for Android devices.
Google Now Launcher is a launcher for Android devices. It was first released in 2014 and has been a popular choice for Android users who want a simple, easy-to-use launcher. The launcher features a clean and simple interface that allows users to easily access their apps and widgets. It also has a Google Now page, which displays personalized information such as weather, traffic, and news.
As reported by 9to5Google in its blogpost:
The latest beta version of the Google app (14.14) reveals today (as seen below) that the “Google Now Launcher will stop working in April.” When this occurs, “your launcher will change to your device’s default launcher.”
Practically speaking, this will impact very few people as devices that still have the Google Now Launcher are probably not usable as daily drivers. If you want to keep things the way they are (for posterity), don’t update the Google app, which probably isn’t serving you too many new features. One small upside for everyone else is that the Google app might get slightly smaller when the GNL is removed.
In conclusion, Google Now Launcher was a popular launcher for Android devices. However, Google has decided to discontinue the launcher in order to focus on other projects. There are several alternatives available, such as Nova Launcher, Action Launcher, and Apex Launcher. While this decision will mainly affect users who currently use Google Now Launcher, it is important to keep in mind that there are plenty of other launchers available for Android devices.
