We talk a lot about the Pixel Launcher, but the Google Now Launcher is available on more devices. The often-overlooked launcher just got a new feature in the latest update. The search bar at the top of the home screen has a new Home icon that launches straight to the Google Feed.
The Google Feed is usually just a swipe away on the home screen, but it is possible to turn it off. The search bar, however, can not be removed. This new Home icon is a way to put the Google Feed more front and center. People that don’t use the Google Feed will find this rather annoying. Hopefully, this isn’t a trend.
