I have a Nexus 5 and I've noticed that the Gallery icon disappeared. I can't find it either in the menu or in the apps settings (running or all). I don't know exactly when it happened, but for sure after the upgrading to 5.0 Lollilop. Now, to open the pics, I have to launch camera and then swipe to the right. Did it happen to someone else? Does anybody know how to solve it? Thanks
Google decided to remove the Gallery app, replacing it by the "Photos" app.
Be sure that you haven't disabled it. Go to Settings -> Apps -> All/Disabled and see if you have disabled it.
I have just went to Settings-APPS-ALL-(Check any Apps set under protected Apps ) by selecting preferences.
I have kept Gallery App under protected Apps ..Now its visible on my home screen once i unchecked the Protected Apps
