    I believe the Photos app replaces it, it is tied to G+ but does show pictures from the device itself too.

    Yeah, Google got rid of it as the Photo app has the same purpose. I prefer it, on all my devices I use the Google Photo's app instead of the stock one

    Is there any way to get a list view in the Photos app? As videos are displayed by a thumbnail and its impossible to find a particular title by that method.

    Just had a quick look at QuickPix and it looks kinda cool, does it intergrate Google Photo's with the photo's on the device?

    Prior to a recent update, the Play Movies & TV app listed movies on your device, this is where i went to select a movie. This has now been removed.

    It's frustrating when you need to install another app to do something pretty simple. The main reason i bought an Nexus 5 was to avoid bloatware and have minimal apps.

    My old S4 had so many gimmicks and bloat but it did have many solid standard features.

    Not sure about the internet connection, I can always view my device pics if I don't have the internet connection, but I can't view my backed up pics

    Hey
    I also just had an update to 5.0 Lolipop and found difficulty in looking at Gallery. But i found it in "Photos" only. There is an option list appears when you slide to right, and there is an option "On Device". then will take you to gallery view (category wise view like Camera, whatsapp, bluetooth etc.)

    What I don't get is how I'm still able to use the messaging app that was stock on my Nexus 4 even after they try to switch to Hangout with Kitkat and now there is a new messaging app. So now I'm at 3 apps for sms only by updating the OS. But they decide to completely get rid of the gallery. I don't mind, really, I just don't get it.

    I don't understand why they've decided to re-introduce a separate messenger app again, either, especially when the new app doesn't support Google Voice. I use GV almost exclusively as my SMS number, so it is a showstopper for me not to be able to use it. I was so happy when Google finally integrated GV with Hangouts SMS.

    The overwhelming majority of Android users don't have GV, so in the most part it's a non issue. Also, a lot of people just want a SMS app and that's what they've got with the new updated Messenger app. With all that in mind, Google will probably ditch the old green SMS app completely as more phones get updated and new models come out.

    Even if it were to be true that the lack of GV support isn't a big issue, I still disagree with the idea of having to use separate apps for Hangouts and SMS. I suspect a lot of people do want to use one application to send messages to anyone regardless of whether or not they have a Google account, just like the iOS people use iMessage. That's what Hangouts allows you to do, though the interface has a lot to be desired.

    If you just want the old Gallery back you may try looking for Gallery Lollipop in the Play Store, for example.

    You mean QuickPic. QuickPix is a game. It is a replacement photo gallery that also has basic editing. You can add any photo file explorer - Dropbox, Flickr, Picasa, etc.
