Among the leaked things is the new Pixel Launcher. And how does this differ from what could be seen on the Google Pixel and Google Pixel 2? Basically, the Google Assistant is given more relevance, offering it a dedicated button in the search bar, which maintains its position at the bottom.

And what are the limitations? The first is that you have to be using Android 8 Oreo or Android 9 Pie, it will not work in previous versions. The second limitation is that it will not work on Pixel phones, as the build it has the same name and cannot be “reinstalled”.
