Google Search update has the Google Experience launcher inside

There has been ongoing speculation about the new Google Experience launcher that is found on the Nexus 5. There has been speculation that because the new launcher is really just the Google Search app that Google would bring the launcher to more devices.

"Well, the Google Search app is getting an update right now that brings with it the Google Experience launcher."

Actually no, this update only brings the new KitKat search and associated cards to Jelly Bean 4.1+ devices. You'll still need to manually install the apk in order to have the new experience launcher.

Misleading title should be fixed.

Since that's what the sentence directly after what you quoted says, I think it's okay.

Also, the title just says the Experience launcher is inside the app, doesn't say you can use it.
