The “Pixel Launcher” is Google’s new take on what an Android homescreen should be, with a unique app drawer implementation and a great overall style. While it’s easy enough to sideload the launcher on any device, it does break quite a bit of the functionality — until now.

Thanks to the work of developer AmirZ, a fully-functional version of the Pixel Launcher is now available for any other Android smartphone. Unlike the standard sideloaded version, this modified version still supports features such as the Google Now panel, Search “Pill,” the weather widget as well.
