Transparent Google Feed Pane Currently Being Tested

Help us, Google, please.

Moreover, the new Android operating system will allow users to customize the design of their notifications. Their new Nova Google Companion app is available from APKMirror and acts as an add-on to the Play Store-available main app - though this setup now only works on the latest beta build of the launcher. Debuggable apps have their own drawbacks like not being publishable on the Play Store, so a workaround had to be thought of to enable the Google Now pane.

The new Google Feed interface also has an "Upcoming" section located on the top right-hand corner. Tapping this will display information like weather warnings and the user's parking location.

What does this mean for Google?

Interestingly, the name "Google Now" has also been discontinued by Google, as the company now refers to it as Google Feed.

It's been months now, and it appears as though no one has received the update yet.

Google's Nexus smartphones never sold that well, when compared to the likes of the Apple iPhone or the Samsung Galaxy S lines of smartphones.

Long story short, the only way to achieve this integration with Google Now was to have root access, and thankfully Nova never went down that path. "We look forward to sharing updates on this point soon". While I personally saw many Android users opting for 3rd party launchers to have stock Android UI, few also ditched the proprietary UI on their device for more customizations. Unfortunately, the company neglected to give out this detail when it first announced the update in its blog post from past year. Once you've downloaded the latest beta version (5.3-beta 1), follow the link at the end of this article to get the companion app. The tab might be a bit redundant, given the search bar already present at the top of the page, but perhaps scrolling to the top was a bit too inconvenient for some. Nonetheless, the original Google Pixel XL is expected to be replaced by a new model with an even bigger screen, dubbed as Taimen.
