Just got my 64G yesterday. LOVING it. Great to be back on CM since I screwed myself over with my SCH-i535.

I really enjoy the Google Now Launcher. Went to install it and its not compatible with the phone? I had run it on my SCH-i535 running CM11.

Is there something I need to do or a way to get it installed?

I have NOT rooted yet nor done anything extra. I am running stock CM11S on the phone so far.

Thanks everyone.

Found the information on another thread.

However, for the One we only need the GoogleHome.apk

I made a write up on the OnePlus forums for new users, giving credit to the XDA post.

If it's like any other 4.4.x ROM, you just need to download the apk and install it as a normal app via any file manager (e.g. ES) - no special fiddling required!

Here's the apk -

Just an easier solution to your question

The Google now launcher is technically only for nexus and gpe devices. So any device that's not one of those shows as incompatible in the Google play store. You however install the apk on any device, but you won't get updates from the play store. When new versions come out, you'll have to download updated apks.
