Nova Launcher brings Google Now to Lollipop devices
Android Lollipop is quite old, although there are still a lot of Android 5.1-powered devices on the market, especially tablets. Nova Launcher is a very popular launcher for Google's mobile operating system, and its latest beta build also supports Lollipop devices, unlike the ones that came before it and required at least Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The latest Nova Launcher comes with a handy tool, dubbed Nova Google Companion. According to SlashGear, this app is "sort of like Google Now, but… just a tiny different." Those interested to take it for a spin should run Nova Launcher 5.2-beta2 or later and, once they install the Nova Google Companion APK, all that needs to be done is to enable Google Now from Nova Settings.
Sadly, Nova Google Companion is not allowed by Google Play yet, so it should be picked up via APK Mirror or TeslaCoilApps. Fortunately, it comes for free, but those less adventurous should wait for it to become available in Google's app store.
