Google pulled the wraps off from the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL a week back at its exclusive event. If we talk about the hardware innovation, it isn’t a good idea to expect such a thing from Google. Google only does what it’s good at. There are massive software improvements in the Pixel smartphones. Both the new Pixel 2 phones run on Android 8.0 Oreo with a number of new features.
It didn’t take too long for Android freaks to get their hands on the applications of the Google Pixel 2. Users even managed to grab the new Pixel Launcher as well. The alleged launcher of the Pixel 2 didn’t have the bottom search bar. This feature seemed quite fascinating and Android enthusiasts couldn’t live without out. Just today, a new Google Pixel 2 Launcher came out which actually is the original Pixel 2 Launcher. There’s a lot of good stuff about this new launcher, but the best part is the addition of the bottom search bar.
The Pixel Launcher from the Google Pixel 2 has got some very smart animations. You can notice new animations while pulling the app drawer or moving the icon of an application on the home screen of your phone. The Pixel Launcher will work a little better on the Nexus and Pixel devices. Google Now panel is exclusive to the Google smartphones for now. Everything else will work on all other smartphones except for this Google Now panel. Download the Pixel Launcher from the Google Pixel 2 using the link below.
The Pixel Wallpaper application from the Google Pixel 2 is also out. This application has been updated with some new static and live wallpapers. You may have seen the Google Pixel 2 wallpaper circulating around the web.

All other wallpapers, which are being published by the websites as the wallpapers of the Pixel 2 are actually the wallpapers of the old Pixel phone. You have to be careful while downloading the exact wallpapers of the Google Pixel 2. The Pixel Wallpaper APK will work only on the Android 8.0 Oreo. At the moment, this application is not working on any other version of Android. You can download the Pixel Wallpaper APK from below.
