The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus launcher have become one of the most requested apps and programs in the Android world in recent times. Ever since both devices got released, Android users and enthusiasts especially Samsung users have in all ways searched for means to install the Samsung GalaxS8 and S8 Plus launcher on their devices.
A lot of developers have quickly moved to port the launcher to older Samsung phones. They were lucky, anyway but with only Samsung Galaxy devices running on Android 7.0 Nougat with GraceUX (TouchWiz). The problem which developers encountered with the launcher is that it could only be installed on Galaxy devices running on Android 7.0 Nougat and others which run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow or older Android versions and the old, .non-GraceUX firmware could not install the launcher.
Users who have tried installing the launcher on their Marshmallow devices ended up receiving errors such as the “Unable to install package”, “Unable to parse package”, “Installation aborted” and other similar warning errors and messages. Most times users get this kind of errors is when they try to install an application which isn’t compatible with their Android OS version.
Luck for such users, Samsung has finally released the official Samsung Galaxy S8 launcher, and it works for all Galaxy phones running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and 7.0 Nougat. Samsung officially supports the launcher, and it can be found in the Google Play Store.
