An update the Google Now Launcher is currently rolling out now in the Google Play Store. Marked with today’s date (May 9th), the 1.0.16 update sounds like it could be pretty minor given Google didn’t even bother posting a changelog to its Play Store listing.

The good news is, according to reports from rooted users, the update doesn’t seem to break the Xposed GEL Settings module (Xgel), so don’t worry about the update killing compatibility. In addition to Google Now Launcher, the Google Camera app also saw a .01 bump in version number to 2.1.043.

We’ll go ahead and link both down below should you feel like downloading/updating. Just don’t forget the Google Now Launcher is only available to “stock” Android devices in the Play Store, but is easily sideloaded. Should someone grab the update, feel free to post a 3rd party download link in the comments. Cheers!

Download/update on Google Play: Google Now Launcher 1.0.16 | Google Camera 2.1.043
