Motorola Gallery

A new light theme and slight design tweak from the original app

Motorola's take on the Gallery app is now joining a long list of apps moving out to the Play Store for easy updating. At the same time, Moto is giving the Gallery app a facelift with a new light color palette and slide-in drawer on the left edge. Motorola says that the image thumbnails are larger and navigation is simpler. At the heart of it this still looks like the same 'ol Gallery app and editing features, just with a little bit of tweaking to make it look and feel different.

The biggest story here is Motorola's ability now to update the Gallery app in the Play Store without updating all of its phones independently. The Moto X, Moto G and latest Droid devices on Verizon — provided they're running KitKat — are all compatible with this new Motorola Gallery and will receive updates through the Play Store from here on out.

If you have one of Moto's new devices, hit the Play Store link above to grab your new Gallery.

Motorola puts its Gallery app in the Play Store, updates with a new look


Looks too much like Google+ photos. I don't like it very much.

Sorry about that. The first time I read the story my brain inserted Google for Motorola.

I love my Moto X as well, but I gotta be honest. I kinda like the Google+ photos app better. Especially the icon, and I know that's probably the least important part.

that's a good point. but i think "calender storage" is where Moto Cal/OS gets the info from.. So I dont know if Assist will be affected or not

And why don't they make Google keep, and Google now reminders feed into the calendar. I would love that.

I seem to remember Google+ Photos app having problems sharing to Facebook and the such. I may be wrong...

Although I own the Moto X, the playstore says my phone incompatible with the new gallery app. What gives?

This update is pretty awesome. Any app with a proper hamburger menu tickles me pink, really.

More manufactures should adopt this system of having their main apps in the play store. Great job Motorola hopefully other companies follow your lead.

It's the default gallery app for newer Motorola devices. If it's not one of these, it won't be compatible.

I had to close and open it three times, I thought I was in the wrong app. I have to get used to it, I liked the old one a lot. But white is nice!

Wish I could access cloud accounts with this gallery. I hate using two.

I agree with TJH132 that accessing two accounts from one would be useful. I like the new look but do not like having to access two programs for photos and videos.
