Google launches myAndroid Taste Test to help you customize your smartphone

Due to the sheer level of customisation Android offers out of the box, there’s virtually no reason for two home screens to look the same. To help users embrace their creative side and be different, Google has launched a new microsite, called #myAndroid Taste Test, which is dedicated to helping them discover new icon packs, launchers, wallpapers and widgets.

To generate accurate, unique suggestions based on their preferences, the Taste Test asks users a series of engaging rapid-fire questions. Don’t fret it, though; they’re all multiple choice and take no more than a couple of seconds each to answer. Just be sure to make your responses as accurate as possible, and you should be pleasantly impressed.

A hidden motive

We even stumbled upon a couple of launchers we didn’t know were available, and they work really well. Like The Verge, though, we noticed that the tool recommended Gboard every time — so it certainly looks like the firm is using its latest fun little microsite as a platform to promote its search-powered keyboard.
