Swipe left-to-proper to get to Google Now from the KitKat launcher
When Google Now used to be unveiled again at Google I/O 2012, we asked how long it would be before this new predictive search app became your home screen. Now, with Android 4.4 KitKat on the Nexus 5, it seems that time has finally arrived.
Similar to HTC BlinkFeed, the stock KitKat launcher lets you swipe right from the leftmost home screen to get directly into Google Now. Of course you can still get to it the old fashioned way by swiping up from the home key, too. And it’s also possible to disable the Google Now pane entirely through the new home settings menu, accessed by long-pressing on any blank space.
Google Now has taken on more and more importance within Android over the past year, to the point where it’s even rumored to form a major part of Google’s upcoming smartwatch. So it is no enormous shock to look it given a bit of top Android actual property. If anything else, it simply underscores the concept that the way forward for cellular search is certainly predictive.
We now have acquired a handful of screenshots after the destroy.
