An update of Google Now launcher can your tablet or smartphone a little more turn into a lollipop device – at least in style.
Sure, there are already some devices running Android 5.0 lollipop, but most of us, especially on the tablet side, still waiting for updates. Not even the current Nexus 7 with LTE has Lollipop – hopefully Google delivers quickly! Anyway, who is on the material design of Lollipop, thanks to an update of the Google Now launcher tablet or smartphone can be at least adapt to Lollipop, by design, a little more.
Google has released an update of today Google Now launcher and the Google Search app published in the Play Store. Both must be up to date, because the apps are closely wired together. The adjustments in the design will work only if you have a tablet or smartphone with Android 4.1, Android 4.4, or a version in between.
I have installed the latest version of Google Now launcher on my Nexus 7 with LTE, a picture you see above. Too big but the changes are not. The Google search on the home screen is now white, the same goes for the button to the app selection. There is now a Google Now Side-in panel, set in the memories, changed accounts and settings can be made. You just get a little more “material design“.
Hopefully future updates will soon appear on Lollipop for tablets. In the case of smartphones, many manufacturers have already released updates, but who has no Nexus 7 or Nexus 9 without LTE, looks far into space.
