The best two features of the Google Now Launcher are, not surprisingly, ways to access Google Now/Google Search faster. If you have a supported device, and you were to install the Google Now Launcher, Google Now itself would permanently fit itself to the left of your default homescreen.

Otherwise, you can try sideloading the APK and hoping for the best. Sideloading doesn't necessarily work with every device. The launcher reportedly works on the , , and .
