Google today updated its Google Now Launcher app to include support for all devices running Android 4.1 and later.

After showing off the launcher on the Nexus 5, Google released a standalone app back in February, but at the time it was only available for Nexus and Google Play edition devices.

With the app, you’ll get Google Now right on your home screen. You can use the “Ok Google” hotword to activate voice search.
