Nova Launcher is the go-to launcher for the sheer amount of customization it offers within itself, but he speed and at which the developer team grains new updates to the app is commendable.
However, one component that people have continually clamored for has been forgotten: Google Now integration. It just couldn’t be added because of requirements that Google had set up. But today, Nova Launcher is at last making this possible.
The Google application used to allow applications authorization use the Now pane if it was a system application. At the point when the Xperia Home launcher included Now, fans asked for their most loved launchers to have it too. However, as an application can’t be moved to the/framework without root. The Google application would likewise take into consideration the Now panel to be displayed if the Google application itself was debuggable, but that was a circumstance that was never experienced.
However, it was changed a couple of updates back. Because the Google application now checks if the customer application is debuggable and not simply the Google application, outsider applications, for example, Nova Launcher can now use the API. But because debuggable applications have numerous issues (not publishable on the Play Store, some ART advancements get impaired, and security can be weaker), a workaround must be made.
With Nova, a plugin app called ‘Nova Google Companion’ will be used to include Google Now. This application satisfies the Google application’s need for the client app to be debuggable, but since it’s debuggable, it can’t be distributed on the Play Store.
So if you need the Now panel, you’ll need to download this partner from APK Mirror. Beginning from Nova Launcher 5.3-beta1 (which can be downloaded from APK Mirror here, if the launcher recognizes the plugin APK (get it from APK Mirror here), the Now panel will be initiated. This will run with any gadget running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher. Nova Launcher Prime is not important to use this.
