How to make your Android smartphone equal to Google Pixel
The new Google Pixel is really a very interesting smartphone and full of amazing news and features. But in addition, the smartphone also has a very beautiful version of Android, known as 7.1 by its users. The problem is that, for now, only Pixel and Nexus line smartphone users can have access to this version of the system and there is no forecast when it will reach other devices.
Fortunately, there's a way around this if you just want to make your Android look like Pixel. Learn more about how to do this in our detailed tutorial below!
If you've seen any Google Pixel video or images in action, you may have noticed that your home screen is very different from what we were used to before with Android. In addition to having beautiful wallpapers, the interface is completely different and more fluid than before.
This is not simply due to the new version of Android, but to the Pixel Launcher. As we mentioned in our special Android launcher article, these apps serve to give your system a completely new look, which can be fully customized.
In the case of Pixel Launcher, you get an Android pretty much the same as Google Pixel, except for the aspects that are unique to the new update. You can download this launcher through this link and the Pixel wallpapers at this other link.
As you will be downloading the file for manual installation, we recommend that you take a look at how to do this in our tutorial via this link. The launcher is even available on the Google Play store, but can only be installed on Pixel today, so you need to download the file from another source.
With all the files inside your smartphone, just install as mentioned. The process takes just a second and is completely safe.
To enable launcher on your smartphone, open the device settings and click on the "Apps" option.
Then click the gear icon at the top right of the screen.
You will see some extra settings, but you need to click on the “Launch App” option.
There you will see the launcher options currently installed on your smartphone. Just select “Pixel Launcher” to activate it on your device.
Okay, now just enjoy your smartphone with the look of Pixel! Just remember that this will not bring the features of Android 7.1 and only serves as a common launcher.
