Google I/O : a new design of the Pixel Launcher the tip of its nose

A new version is not deployed on the Google Pixel Launcher has been seen during the Google I/O. The search bar has been reviewed.

During the Google I/O, and without really do it on purpose, Google has unveiled a new design for the Pixel Launcher. On a stand, the firm of Mountain View has in fact exposed of smartphones shipping a version that is still not deployed the interface of the Google Pixel. The site 9to5Google has had the opportunity to discover it.

First of all, we observe that the search bar has been reviewed. Farewell to the white design and place a gray bar and transparent. But mostly, it is placed in the bottom of the screen, just below the dock icons of applications. A choice that seems logical a priori. This configuration seems to facilitate the use of a hand. A detail not negligible when we see that smartphones are becoming increasingly large.

This version of the Pixel Launcher also allows you to search for apps directly on the Play Store, while up to now, the search is focused only on the apps already installed on the phone.

It is good to clarify that the stand on which has been sighted this interface was intended to do demos of the feature Time Apps. Therefore, it is assumed that this version of Pixel Launcher is compatible with this option that allows you to launch applications from the web. Nothing lets you know when the new version of the interface will be deployed. We will find out may be more when the release of’Android O or at the time of the formalization of the second generation of Google Pixel.
