Default Google EARS

I used to have this version on my nexus 4, but when i changed my google account and moved to nexus 5, its not working anymore.
it fails to be installed.
tried this also, but same issue.

any help with a working version?
i really like ears, better than shazam, and it helps that can be put as widget in lock screen.

Have you tried getting from the play store directly? Here's a link for you.

doooh
due to my location in EUROPE, the playstore app is not available.
On my phone search it does not appear, and when i go to it on PC, it says "NO ELIGIBLE DEVICES FOR APP INSTALL".
thats why i had to try with the apk from xda. but now...that one does not work either.

i click the apk to install..it starts..and then..app not installed. thats all.

I'm in Italy and on my N5 was installed by default...

Here it is my apk: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3p60sht7mb...GoogleEars.zip

If you are rooted just extract and put the apk directly on system folder, then set the correct permission. rw-r--r--

I removed it from the system/apps. What does it do anyway?

I'm in Canada and noticed it was already in System/apps, after clicking it gave me the option to install it and it worked. The widget now appears in the widgets area. I'm not able to purchase any music through it even though I can use Google Music, but the song search feature seems to work great, saves me from Googling lyrics every time I want to know the name of a song.

Rooted stock 4.4.1

So like soundhound and shazam do? Well that's no use for me. Thanks.

Yeah same as what they do, just a bit better IMO and no need for another app. If you want to be able to purchase the music I believe you need to live in the U.S.A
