[APK] Google Keep 2.3 Gets Android Wear Support, YouTube and Play Services Also Receive Update Love

Even with all of the I/O 2014 and Android L commotion, Google still managed to give us a healthy Update Wednesday yesterday, with app updates to Google Drive, Search, and Maps, as well as the arrival of Slides and Android TV Remote in the Play Store. But not content in simply delivering 5 new APKs for us, Google has now issued updates to Keep and YouTube. The Play Services 5 update that we talked about yesterday has also begun rolling out.

First up, we have a relatively significant update to Google Keep. Today’s update brings us to version 2.3.02 (up from version 2.2 from early April), and it packs one major feature. If you’re one of the lucky few to already own an Android Wear device–either through I/O or by ordering on the Play Store–you can now view your Keep notes, reminders, and lists on Android Wear-powered wearables.

In order to run this latest version of Keep, you must have Play Services 5 installed. This is most likely due to new APIs needed for the Wear integration. Thankfully, we have you covered there as well, with mirrors for every known variant. In addition, YouTube was also updated to version 5.7.41 (up from version 5.7.38 two weeks ago). There’s nothing major here, so it’s most likely just a bugfix update.

These app updates will make their way out to consumer devices through the Play Store via a staged rollout. Naturally, not every device will be in initial wave. However, we’ve gone ahead and mirrored the APKs over on our DevHost account for your sideloading pleasure:

Google Play Services:

Are you a current / soon-to-be Android Wear owner? If so, do you see yourself using this Keep integration? Let us know in the comments below!

[As usual, many thanks to XDA Portal Supporter MihirGosai for the APKs!]
