Nova Launcher reached version 3.0, Google’s voice hotword included in the update

Nova Launcher is one of the best launchers on Android, no doubt. It is smooth, feature-rich and beautiful. Nova has been updated and reached a 3.0 version after being in beta version for a while.

Full changelog:

  • OK, Google – Use Google’s voice hotword from within Nova Launcher. Requires Jellybean and a device/locale Google supports for hotword.
  • Subgrid positioning – More flexible layouts by snapping items halfway through the grid
  • Dynamica Calendar Icons – Supports Today Calendar’s Dynamic Calendar Icon, also supported by some icon themes such as Domo or KEX
  • Color options – icon labels, tabs, backgrounds

The biggest feature added is “OK, Google” command which should work with JellyBean and KitKat versions of the OS. Try it out for yourself (if you haven’t already) on the link below and tell us what you think.
