5 Best Launchers For Pixel 4

The Google Pixel 4 comes with the Pixel Launcher right out of the gate. It’s a simple, fast, and bloat-free launcher. A lot of people like that simplicity, but because of that simplicity, there aren’t a whole lot of features in Pixel Launcher, especially as far as customization goes. So, if you want to take control over your home screen, you’re going to need to download a custom launcher.

Not sure what the best launchers are for the Google Pixel 4? We’ve got all the best listed below. Let’s dive right in.

Nova Launcher

Nova Launcher is one of our favorite launchers for any phone. Nova Launcher has dominated the custom launcher field for years now and is still one of the best options that you can pick up today. With its clean interface and the sheer amount of customization it gives you, it’s a hard one to pass up. Inside Nova Launcher’s settings, you have a ton of customization options, themes, and controls that let you make even the tiniest adjustments of the launcher.

This launcher even has excellent widget support. You can add your usual widgets to the home screen, but Nova Launcher also lets you add widgets to the app dock at the bottom of your screen! There’s a ridiculous amount more worth mentioning with Nova Launcher, but these are some of the highlights. The features here are endless.

Microsoft Launcher

Microsoft Launcher might be a strange one, but they have a perfect launcher for Android. It brings you a new interface that’s different from many of the traditional launchers out there. It also adds support for seamless connectivity between your phone and your Windows PC. You can say goodbye to emailing yourself files once and for all.

Just connect your phone to your PC via the Microsoft Launcher, and then you can quickly and easily share files between that PC and your phone — almost like Apple’s AirDrop. As a bonus, you get a ton of customization features that you can take advantage of, too.

It even comes with a Universal Search function.

Smart Launcher 5

You cannot go wrong with Smart Launcher 5 for the Google Pixel 4. One of the cool things about Smart Launcher is that it has a feature that automatically changes the theme colors to match your wallpaper. Smart Launcher 5 makes your home screen a little easier to play around with and navigate by automatically categorizing apps as well.

One of the unique things here might be a gesture system, too. You could just as easily use your phone’s power button, but in the gesture system, with just a couple of taps on display, you can unlock or lock your phone.

Smart Launcher doesn’t quite have a universal search, but it does have a “smart search.” This is essentially a full search function but also allows you to easily do things like perform a calculation, find a contact, etc.

Evie Launcher

Next up, we’re looking at Evie Launcher. If you want your Google Pixel 4 to continue to sport that simple, clean, and easy to navigate interface, Evie Launcher ends up being a unique take on that simplicity. We wouldn’t say there are any special functions inside the Evie Launcher like you would find in, say, Nova Launcher, but it does bring you an all-new design.

It makes navigation quick and easy, and there’s even a universal search function, which makes finding content on your phone super easy.

Apex Launcher

Last up on our countdown, and we’re looking at Apex Launcher. This one might be the launcher that is closest to Nova Launcher, with Apex Launcher having loads of customization features. One of the cool things about Apex Launcher is that you can preview your changes before actually making them to the home screen.

One of the cooler things about Apex Launcher is the scrollable app dock. Got some otherĀ apps you want to add to your dock? You can, as the Apex Launcher gives you room for scrolling left to right and right to left.

Apex supports smartphones and tablets alike.

Verdict

As you can see, there are a lot of excellent launchers that you can use with the Google Pixel 4. It uses the Pixel Launcher by default, which is a reasonably clean interface; however, if you don’t like the simplicity of it, there’s a large variety of other launchers that you can download for the smartphone, available straight from the Google Play Store.
