We’ve been digging through the Nexus 5’s factory image, testing out all the new Google apps to see which work, and which don’t. Here’s a quick list with download links if you want to be on the bleeding edge of Google software. Have at it.
Tested and working
- Keep (Needs Play Services 4.0)
- Play Books
- Street View
- Play Games
- Google Keyboard 2.0
And the rest? Well, we haven’t gotten the opportunity to test them all out. Feel free to download and try out a few for yourself, just be warned, they might break a few things if you aren’t careful. Make sure you let us know what’s installing, that way we can finish up the list. Cheers!
