[apk] Get the new Android 4.4 KitKat Google Experience Launcher, Hangouts v2

With Android 4.4 KitKat announced today, we’re sure that some of you do not want to wait for the official update to experience the new Google launcher and Hangouts v2. Thankfully, the Nexus 5 factory image has been made available not too long ago. This means that after doing some looking around, apk files for the new apps are up for grabs.

To be able to use the new launcher, download Velvet, PreBuiltGmsCore and GoogleHome. That’s all you have to do. Following the install. you’ll notice how smooth this launcher is.

To grab the new Google Hangouts, all you have to is install the apk here. Make sure your “Unknown Sources” box in the Settings is checked.

    The link for PreBuiltGMSCore is the same as GoogleHome.

      Or… We can download it from the page were on (right here) rather than navigate to another.

        Ryan, the link for ‘prebuiltgsm’ just redirects to the ‘googlehome’ link (doesn’t work) which is why we posted alternate download links.

    Will this automatically update when the official version comes around? Or what do I have to do?

  • Daniel Benfield

    Thanks for the link. You can add more home screens by clicking on an app and dragging it right which then adds another home screen. I’ve got 5 right now not sure how many you can add but that’s all I needed Thanks
