With the release of the Google Now Launcher on the Play Store, most Android users were left jilted. The coolest thing to hit Android this week is only available for Nexus and Google Play Edition devices. If you don’t have one of those, but still want the launcher, fret not. It can be done.
It’s actually pretty easy, too. First, you’ll want to get into your settings and allow apps outside of the Play Store to be loaded. To do that, you go to Settings > Security. From there, you’ll see a heading called “Device Administrators”. Under that, you’ll see “Verify Apps”, which has a tidy little explanation of what it’s about. Enable that one, and you’re halfway there.
