Google changes name of Nexus 5 launcher; move could signal its availability soon on Google Play Store

If you go to Settings> Home > menu after updating the Search app, you should find the new name of the launcher staring you in the face. And those of you who sideloaded the Nexus 5 launcher on their handset should see a splash screen (image below) after the update.
Does this all mean that the heralded Nexus 5 Google Now launcher will soon be made available to other Android users via the Google Play Store? Stay tuned.

I'd love the new launcher to be in the app store. Though I came up with its APK for my tablet after it got the OTA KitKat update, I'd love to see it updated automatically.

Yes it will be great to have this come out officially and be optimised for the other nexus devices and even the other android devices but launchers like Nova, apex and action launcher still have greater functionality. I'm still waiting on stock launchers being able to use custom icon packs!
