While Google has been "certifying" Android devices since quite some time now, it is only now that it has chose to launch a website detailing the whole concept to consumers.

The modified Pixel Launcher (version 2.1) has been developed by AmirZ, who was also responsible for breaking the exclusivity of Pixel Launchers and made them available for entire eligible range of Android smartphones in June this year.
