Motorola Gallery arrives to Google Play, features brand new look

by: Andrew GrushJanuary 23, 2014


Over the last few months we’ve seen quite a few Motorola apps make the move to Google Play including Motorola Connect, Motorola Assist and Motorola Touchless Control. This is great because it makes it easier to update individual Motorola programs without having to issue system updates. With that in mind, Motorola Gallery is now following in the same footsteps.

Earlier today, Motorola Gallery officially debuted on Google Play sporting a new look that includes a lighter color palette and a slide-out navigation panel that replaces the previous dropdown list. The change-log also mentions that the app now features larger thumbnails.

Now it’s important to remember that just because the app can be found in Google Play doesn’t mean it is compatible with just any device. To grab the app update you’ll need a Moto X, Moto G or a newer Motorola Droid handset. To grab the update, you’ll want to head on over to Google Play.

    Can we install touch less control on Google play edition moto G ??

      That’s a good question. Part of me would lean towards ‘no’, but I’m not sure. Anyone else know the answer? In case no one else responds, I’ll try to do a bit of digging and find out. Thanks! :)

        If we can, even to some limits, it will b great win for moto G!

          If you change the build.prop, and the play store recognizes your phone as a moto x, then you can install it, but there is no guarantee that it will work.

          Also moto g can use this app…

      You can’t side load it unless you go into the code for the app and port it to your device otherwise all you’ll get is a “parse error” and with apps like these that’ll be more difficult than average. And if you wanted to try and change your build.prop to make it so your phone is identified as a moto x that could work but I have had no luck whatsoever with that. Cheers if it works though.

      By the way, someone should make an xposed module to change how play store recognizes your device if there isnt already.

        Anything possible, I side loaded the nexus5 Google dialer and flashed in to my lg Optimus g and it worked flawless, lol?..

    APK anyone? I really hate this region blocks!!!

  • Jason Brian Chapa

    Will this work sideloaded on another phone, such as a Nexus 5?

    What’s wrong with the default Gallery on Android phones?
