It hasn’t been long since the next version of Android (dubbed Android L) was announced and we are already seeing things getting ported over to the devices running an older version of Android. The stock keyboard from Android L with the great looking Material Design is now available to existing Android users and that too directly via the Play Store. This means there is no need to mess around with the settings and to download the APK files from other sources.

The keyboard has been extracted from Android L and released as a standalone by @shen_ye, so all hail for him. Hope we will see more of Android L getting ripped off and released for devices running older versions of Android.
