The Nokia Z Launcher also ships with Nokia N1 Android tablet as custom UI on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop. For other devices running Android versions ranging from Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to Android 4.4 KitKat can download the Nokia Z Launcher Beta app from Google Play (notably, the app is not available on Google Play India yet).
The company says that, "Throughout the day, Nokia Z Launcher is learning how you use your phone and promoting your favourite apps so you can get to them faster." It adds that over time, the "Z Launcher learns what applications are in use, and predicts and highlights the applications consumers are expected to want based on time of day and location."
Just like the pre-beta version of the app, users can 'Scribble' the first letter of the search on home screen and it finds the related app, contact or task. Nokia says that with the Adapt feature, the launcher over time "learns to promote the right stuff at the right time."
