Nova Launcher is updated with new features of Android 8

Nova Launcher is without a doubt one of the best launchers for Android devices. The popular tool created by TeslaCoil was one of the first launchers to implement functions seen in the latest version of the Google operating system.

Now, thanks to our partners, we have learned that the latest beta of Nova Launcher brings one of the most interesting features of Android 8 Oreo.

When Google introduced Android 8 Oreo was surprised by the change in the search bar widget allowing you to modify the apps dock widget to replace the Google bar with any other.
And now if you update Nova Launcher you will enjoy this new feature implemented in the beta version of the most popular launcher in the Android universe.
