A number of Google Pixel 4 apps expected to debut on the new phones are now available for download.
If you’ve been following the Pixel 4 leak frenzy, you may have seen a bunch of new developments after a website called Nextrift got access to a pre-release Pixel 4 XL unit. The website (via 9to5Google) shared a number of Pixel 4 apps — the new Google Recorder app, updated Pixel Launcher, new Pixel Themes app, and a handful of new Pixel 4 live wallpapers (via XDA). Now, all of these apps are available for download.
Pixel Themes app
Google’s new Pixel Themes app will allow you to customize fonts, icon designs, accent colors, and more on Pixel 4 devices. While Google will possibly bring this app to all Pixel users in the future, you can now download it with the APK 9to5Google was able to access through the pre-release Pixel 4 XL unit. The Pixel Themes APK can be downloaded from the link in the button pasted below. You can head over to the 9to5Google link given above for the complete instructions on how to do so.
The new set of Pixel 4 apps also features the Pixel Launcher. The only new change here is the ability to swipe down to access your device’s notification tray. The APK for the Pixel Launcher was also extracted from the pre-release Pixel 4 XL unit and should work with any Pixel device.
Download Pixel 4 live wallpapers
While new live wallpapers on Pixel 4 were uncovered by 9to5Google, a member of XDA Developers was able to modify the APK so anyone with an Android 7 and above 64-bit device can download them.
You can choose from wallpapers called Prickly, Leafy, Rocky, and Sights From The Sun. There’s also a Doodle wallpaper which allows you to move objects around on the screen. A Compass wallpaper lets you pick a location and the compass then points to it. There are the “Living Universe” set of wallpapers which now feature locations in Saudi Arabia, Australia, and Switzerland.
Six of the nine Pixel 4 wallpapers also support the system-wide dark mode and turn dark in accordance. Download the Pixel 4 live wallpapers at the link below.
Google Voice Recorder
The Google Pixel 4 phones will come pre-installed with a voice recording app. The app allows you to start voice recordings with the tap of the record button, and you can also share recordings straight from within the app.
