How To Install LawnChair Launcher on Android Phone: Google is famous for releasing special goodies with its smartphones. We have seen the Nexus exclusive features in the past. Now the trend continues with the latest Pixel branded smartphones from Google. Both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones bring a lot of exclusive stuff that is aimed at improving the overall user experience. Both devices were launched just recently on the 4th October. As expected new Pixel phones are full of new interesting OS functionalities. Most sought after features on both smartphones is the revamped Pixel launcher and the Pixel 2 stock wallpapers.
Android developers are usually quick at cracking the code to enable porting the Google exclusive goodies on other Android powered devices. However, things are not exactly the same this time around. The Pixel 2 launcher is available only to the newly released smartphones. It is not yet compatible with all Android phones yet. The stock Pixel launcher on the Pixel 2 phones requires certain hardware and software to run properly. As always, Google has managed to design a stunning launcher for its smartphones. But as any Android enthusiast knows that nothing is beyond the capacity of Android developers over there at the XDA forum. One senior XDA member, who goes by the name of ‘deletescape’, has been able to mirror the entire Pixel launcher into a separate launcher app named the LawnChair Launcher. It enables users of non-Pixel 2 devices to enjoy same great experience and functions. The custom designed launcher comes with additional goodies on top of the stock Pixel launcher features.
