We have seen how other brands like HTC or Samsung integrated other feeds on its side, as Blinkfeed or Flipboard, but now Sony has decided to integrate Google's assistant in its pitcher, to complete a little more.

Although the Sony launcher has always been one of the most complete, and integrating various options for the application drawer and enjoys a very careful design.

And it is that despite its shortcomings in customization, Google Now Launcher is one of the most downloaded on Google Play, evidently because the desktop integration of Google Now, which facilitates and speeds rather casual on Google search.

Sony has also chosen to include various improvements in this new beta, such as the support for notifications of Facebook and the Facebook Messenger, a transparent search bar and several performance improvements.

Undoubtedly, the Japanese company has done well by introducing the support for Google Now, because so the users will not have to modify the phone by installing the launcher from Google to also get it when this beta version becomes stable, we can check if it is well integrated or not, in order to decide between one or the other.

Although despite this, the Sony launcher continues to sin - much less than Google - the absence of more customization options, so if you really look radically to change the look of the smartphone and have other options to install Google Play as Nova Launcher or ADW Launcher is recently updated.

Sony is in the doldrums and many of us wonder where that is new X series that has left offside to Z in which we found very interesting in high range.

Although it’s not being able now to launch for the Android smartphones that fit the needs of many, it is launching a very interesting software and this we have seen in the beta ROM Marshmallow with the best we have seen for Xperia. It has been able even to launch a preview of Android for a non-Nexus device.

To use this launcher, you need to have a Xperia phone (do not know the exactly models). It is an open beta version so you can participate. You will find a message at the bottom of the screen for you to confirm your participation to the beta version. So you'll find the installation launcher to test this very interesting new feature.

So when you have an active current, to activate Google Now in the settings of the app launcher, you get to move the main screen to the left, so that with a swipe you can access Google Now as with the launcher from Google. This has the same look and the same functions that the Google Now Launcher.

We still have doubts about how Sony has been able to have this feature, because the third - party launchers are unable to access this option.
