Best Launchers That Support Google Discover Feed

by Ravi Teja KNTS

Google Discover is something I would consider more useful than Samsung Daily, OnePlus Shelf, or any other side panel for the home page. But as most of the default launchers don’t support it, here are the third-party launchers that support the Google Discover Page.

Best Launchers That Support Google Discover Feed

1. Lawnchair Launcher 2

Lawnchair is the closest launcher that completely makes your phone feels like a stock Android without any customization. Comparing to other launchers like Nova, CPL, etc Lawnchair has easy to use customization options which you can tweak out easily.

Anyhow, the Google Discover page is not available by default. To enable it, long-press on the page and select the option called “Home Settings”. Now select the “Plugins” option. Under the Google App section, you can enable the toggle for “Show Google App Feed”. Now click on “Get Lawnfeed” in the pop-up. This will open the website where you can download the Google Feed Plugin. Click on the blue button “Get Lawnfeed” to download the plugin. Once downloaded, install the plugin just like any APK file. Once installed, you again need to open “Home Settings” > Plugins and enable the “Show Google App Feed” option. That’s it, now you can find the Google Feed in the left side panel.

2. Nova Launcher

Nova Launcher is undoubtedly the most famous launcher on Android for the amount of customization it offers and also feels like a stock android launcher with added features. Anyhow, Google Feed is not enabled by default even on the Nova Launcher. You need to enable it by installing the Google Companion app. Make sure that you are on the latest version of Nova Launcher for this app to work perfectly.

To enable it, open this web page and download the “Nova Google Companion” launcher. Now install it like any APK file. Once done, close it and now open the Nova Home page settings > integrations. Now you can see a new option called “Google Discover”. Here you can enable it, make changes to themes, transition effects, etc. That’s it, you can check out Google Feed on the home page.

3. Hyperian Launcher

Hyperion Launcher feels like stock Android with added transparency to the UI. Similar to previous launchers, Hyperian Launcher also does not support the Google Discover page by default. But you can download the “Hyperian Dock” from the APK Mirror and install it. Make sure you are downloading the latest version of the launcher and Dock app for a better experience.

Once installed, open the Hyperian settings and select Integrations under the Advanced tab. Here enable the “Display Google Feed” toggle and select the theme for the Feed.

4. Rootless launcher

Rootless Launcher feels like Marshmello, Nougat style of Android making it big different from many other stock Android launchers. To enable the Google Feed, all you need to do is download the Rootless Pixel Bridge app from Github. That’s it once installed, you can open the Rootless Launcher settings and enable the “Display Google app” option.

Anyhow, the Pixel Bridge app doesn’t work on many OEMs like Samsung, MIUI, etc.

5. Action Launcher

Action Launcher supports Google Feed but behind the Paywall when you have chosen to get Plus. Considering Action Launcher supports many features like creating custom shortcuts, adaptive zoom transition for the opening app, at glance support, custom widgets for popular apps, etc you can choose the plus and also have many other advantages. Once you have the Plus plan, all you need to do open the Action Launchers settings, select the “Google Discover Feed” option and enable it. This will replace the left side app drawer in the Action Launcher.

Wrapping Up

The experience and suggestions from Google Discover is the same on all the platforms. The only difference that these different plugins make is they merge the discover feed perfectly into the respected launcher with a clean fade out and fade in animation from the home page.
