    How come the N7 doesn't have the Google Now launcher? I thought that was the pure Android way. I updated to 5.0 by flashing the factory images. What am I missing? Is anyone else wondering this, too?

    So why do the N5 and N6 come out of the box with the Google Now launcher anyway, while the N7 doesn't?

    It may have it in the next update. 5.1 or 5.0.1. Bug fixes.
    I only said it that way because the op said " I thought it was pure android ". I was just pointing out the difference between pure android and pure google. Then letting them know its in the play store. :D
