A recent report came today from Read-Only Memory (ROM) Developer @LlabTooFeR with screenshots of a recent version of the Nexus Launcher which first came on developer preview builds of Nexus devices. As it turns out, the launcher is being renamed to “Pixel Launcher” which directly reflects reports of HTC “Sailfish” and “Marlin” being srecent as Google Pixel devices rather than “Nexus”.

The launcher update has a few recent features as well as a second component .APK for searching and applying wallpapers.

For starters, the launcher now allows landscape mode, but it isn’t enabled by default, you just have to flip the toggle in the settings page.

The wallpaper selector looks like it can download a bunch of high resolution wallpapers from what we can only assume is hosted on Google’s servers. Among the categories of wallpapers you can also choose to turn on “Daily Wallpaper” which will change your wallpaper every day with one of the wallpapers in that category.
