It seems that Google recently updated Google Search on Android to set up "Now Cards". I have no intention of enabling this. I've disabled it in the Google Search settings, but it continues to nag me to set it up. How do I disable it and get rid of this nag?

    if you type any search term in home screen then you wont see any Now cards being displayed..but if u search in Google Now screen then you will see the suggestion first and then the cards(sports, weather etc) based on your configuration of Google Now – Lucky May 24 '15 at 10:32

    Lucky's comment has a point: why do you need to go to that screen if you want to perform a search? AFAIK, you can just search from any home screen with the Google Search Bar widget. Or, do you want to actually remove that part from the home screen (which I think is impossible unless using other launcher)? – Andrew T. May 25 '15 at 6:56
  • I'm using a Samsung S5 and I prefer to access Google Search by pressing and holding the home button. – Frotz May 26 '15 at 7:34

    @Frotz If you dislike Now cards and you haven't configured then you wont see any Cards. so just igonre the Get Cards message.. – Lucky May 27 '15 at 10:51

It looks like Google has mooted this question by removing the nag.
