Grab the Pixel Launcher for any Android phone, no root required

Ever since the Google Now launcher was discontinued, there was no official way to get the Google home screen experience on your Android device short of buying something that used Google’s newer launcher, which is pretty much just the Pixel.

Amazon shifts gears, set to release a new phone with Google Play

Sure, you can use a browser and side load some apps, but for the most part you don’t have an easy way to access things like Gmail, YouTube, and Google’s marketplaces for music, movies, and TV shows.
