Only a few weeks have passed since the official announcement of Android 4.4 update was made, and now people are curious about knowing the list of devices that will get the update. It is sure that the previous version of nexus 5 will receive the update, but for sure not completely. I mean to say that update will be there but you might not get a whole new experience of the Nexus 5.
The feature will is named as the single most exciting feature of Nexus 5 will not be introduced in the predecessor with the initial 4.4 KitKat update. The feature I’ve been talking about is the new Google Now Infused Launcher that promises faster access to the most talked about Google Now Service with just an “Ok Google” phrase and with just a swipe towards the left home screen which in reality is the Google Now as a substitute for a place for applications and widgets take a seat.
In the quick start guide of Android 4.4 KitKat given the company tells precisely that the newest Android update’s home screen for the Nexus 5 says, “The Home Screens on Nexus 5 work very differently from the Home Screens on the other Nexus devices.” Initially everybody thought that this can’t be true, but it a simple yes to Nexus 5 to receive the fastest access to Google Now.
Here are a certain things that the Nexus 5 Android 4.4 Launcher which the users can install with three files on Nexus 4 device:
The new launcher is solely for the Nexus 5 device. There might be chances that the internet giant might change its mind and even include it in the case of Nexus 4 and perhaps someday you will find it on the Google Play Store.
To be very clear, Google Now Launcher does not need any kind of technological leap or specific hardware in the way of Launcher coming on the Nexus 4 with Android KitKat 4.4 platform. It is just the decision of the Google to keep Nexus 4 owners away from it and not the technology.
The Nexus line of smartphones are best known for fast updates that bring the new features from the latest versions of Android to older devices. With Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5 we see a different approach, segmenting the best new features for the Nexus 5 and cutting off support for the fairly recent Galaxy Nexus smartphone that Google released in 2012.
