There are actually 2 issues here: No swipe from Home button gesture Cannot change the action from Google Now to other apps (e.g Tasker, or Greenify) The first issue is caused to accomodate a new feature called Now on Tap.

Open Google app. Go to Settings > Now Cards Disable both Show all cards and Notifications. This should solve the problem.

Simply go to: Settings > apps > setting icon > default apps > Assist & voice input > assist app In there you will find a list of apps, you choose google, now it will be selected. I use the home button to lock my phone with screen lock app. You should find greenify in there too,if you have it.

In Google Now, click the menu icon on the left of the search bar (it looks like a hamburger). Then choose Settings -> Voice -> "OK Google" Detection. (Click image to enlarge) Flip the three switches on. When you switch on the second one, the app will ask you to say "Okay Google" three times to train the voice model.

Restarting the PC fixed the problem. I restarted the Bluestacks and also tried Restart option from the tray icon options menu. But restarting the PC fixed the issue and the fourth option Google Now Laucher is shown in the list.

I figured it out. Actually in marshmallow, the swipe up gesture is replaced by the 'holding the home button' gesture. If you turn off the 'now on tap', the google now will launch if you hold the home button. I guess this is one of marshmallow's changelog...

Uh, I'm not entirely sure what the question is so just tell me if I'm wrong. If you pull up Google Now launcher under the apps section of settings there should be a button titled "clear defaults." If you select this it should ask you which launcher you want to use next time you close an app. You can also install a different launcher and the same thing ...

Apparently (as of current writing), Google Now on Tap only available if the System language is set to English. From Official Google Support for Search, What languages is this feature available in?

Added: After more searching, I found How to remove the Google Search bar from your Android homescreen indicating you have these options: Disabling Google Now, which is not recommended on the Nexus 5 as it might soft-brick your device Install custom launcher, which you don't really want to do Using Xposed framework (root required), which doesn't seem to ...

What I've done in the past (you're not alone in this want!) is take other emails that I've gotten from other flights and replaced all the information with my new flight that I wish to track. Make sure you hit the most important parts Itinerary number Confirmation code Flight numbers Incoming/outgoing airports All flight times Once I filled in all my new ...

No, you cannot. It's built entirely to listen ONLY through its built-in microphones, as it can do so with minimal power drain. Activating touchless control through any normal Bluetooth headset would require that the Bluetooth headset's microphone be always listening and always transmitting to the phone, resulting in a massive power drain to both devices. ...
