It looks like Action Launcher will be the latest third-party launcher to support full Google Now integration. As you may know, Google doesn’t provide an official API for third party developers to integrate Google Now into their apps, so developers often end up having to leave it out completely or resort to creative means. That’s why with the latest update, you do have access to Google’s pane with a simple swipe on your home screen, but you have to download the Google Now Plugin as a separate APK first. You can download the file via APKMirror or directly.
