  • Hulu for Android TV update adds Google Assistant voice control

Today the Pixel 2 launcher (the newest Pixel launcher) was released through 3rd-parties for older devices. The battery app has only been included on Google's Nexus and Pixel devices, and support has not been widened with this standalone release. Of course, to be able to use it, you would need actual AirPods to go along with your Android smartphone. We downloaded and tested it on a Pixel XL running Oreo and it is working flawlessly, Google Now intact. This along with a few other bits of software have been both ripped from the Pixel 2 and made available to all Android users - a bunch of which will be able to use the lot. "The case offers a sleek design while offering heavy-duty protection to the Google Pixel's impressive new camera".

It's one more feature that brings parity to Google Assistant but a very welcome one. At a glance, and all that.

The all-new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 offers a new launcher style in which the location of the search bar has been changed and moved to the bottom. It did, however, work with Google Assistant on our Android. And make sure you understand that whatever happens with that file or your smartphone or anything else, for that matter, SlashGear will not be held accountable. The file is a tiny 2.5MB, as there's not much going on under the hood.

Do note that Pixel style navigation bars are not included, for that you have to install Xposed framework separately anyway let's get back to the Pixel 2 Launcher.

Google's brand new Pixel 2 also came with a new version of Pixel Launcher and if anyone of you was hoping to get their hands on that kind of UX, your prayers have been answered.
