It is possible that maybe your parents (or your friends) searched for it, or +1d it, or checked into it, and they are in your Circles! Google regularly gives you suggestions based on what people in your Circles like.

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. Now, instead of swiping the Home button, you just need to hold it to access Google Now screen (or "Now on Tap", if enabled). AFAIK, this ...

Since Google's redesigned Feed as a replacement of Google Now on July 19, 2017, there's no easy way to remove Stories to read but to block every single source/topic. James Wald commented: I was able to defeat the "Stories to read" section by blocking every single source using "Not interested in stories from ..." on each card. The stories section is now ...

I think the one on the right is the icon that shows you have an alarm on (always shows when you have an alarm). The one on the left is a notification and should disappear if you dismiss the notification.

The Google Experience Launcher is actually built into the Google Search app along with Google Now. This is why it can listen for 'Okay Google' and have Google Now accessible via the left swipe. Ars Technica has a good article which goes into more details on this. There are some launchers that support gestures, which might be similar to the left swipe to ...

Though this question is almost 5 years old but I think an updated answer can help users looking for updated info. Nowadays Google gets its weather data from weather.com as mentioned in bottom left corner of Google weather search results when you look for temperature of any location (highlighted in red rectangle). But as the OP says a lot of times Google's ...

There is the activity Google Search > com.google.android.voicesearch.fragments.reminders.EditReminderActivity which does exactly what you want.

I don't think it's possible to add a shortcut to the "add reminder" card at the moment. I've had a look through the Activities as well and none of them appear to do what you want. There is a "Set reminder" option in the menu within Google Now which may help? Click the three dots at the bottom right (you might need to scroll down) and you should see the "Set ...

Here is a fairly simple solution that does not require the use of a variable. You will need to set up two additional profiles and also ensure that you name the profile you created to trigger on your shake context. To name your existing profile, if you haven't already, long press on the profile and then touch the A on the top bar to name it - let's use '...

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. Wierd I dont know how this fixed it.(May be some registry or some other system reset changes required with restart.)

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.

It appears as though you can't turn off stories to read without turning on Web & App Activity, which saves (and presumably allows google to see) all of your searches and browsing history. So you can either (a) not use Google Now (b) be annoyed with trashy clickbait "stories" (c) allow Google to see, save, and track all of your searches and browsing ...

Answering my own question, this seems to just be my misunderstanding of how Google Now works. I was typing the search and expecting a voice response. But apparently it only responds with a voice if you ask with a voice. If I use voice search, then a voice does indeed reply. Leaving this question/answer here in case anyone else has the same ...

The overflow menu for Google Now (on all form factors, I believe) is in the bottom right corner of the app instead of the top right, where most other applications put it. You need to make sure you've scrolled all the way to the bottom of your cards, though, because it shares the bar with the "Show more cards..." button, which is hidden if your screen is full....

Don't know if you found an answer or not but here is what I did. It requires Desktop VisualizeR. Open Chrome on your mobile device and search for "Google Now Add Reminder". This will initiate a reminder card through through Chrome. In Chrome Menu select "Share..." Then select "DVR save to clipboard". Then create the shortcut on your home screen using the ...

Not sure if this question can be answered any more, because I have had the English UK male voice back for a while now. Turns out it was Google changing things - not me. Just one day it reverted back to the male voice. Thanks to the guys who answered though! :)

Magic wand at the bottom of Google Now should do it (that is if you turned them off). If you just flicked the tile away they will be back so don't worry. If not just go into the magic wand menu and set the way you "get around" to another mode of transportation, then change it back to driving.

Keep clicking on the Next button as if you are agreeing. Then you can choose 'No, Maybe Later` to opt out of google-now. When you perform a normal search under your previous searches/ suggested searches there is a link to "Get Google Now" again! You can click the big X beside it and it will not come back. However, some updates and reinstalling the ...

No. The app drawer is part of the same app as the home screen itself: the launcher app. You can only replace both of them at once. Some launchers don't even have a separate app drawer: the list of apps is a seamless part of the home screen itself.

You need to use a third-party launcher app like Nova Launcher. In Nova Launcher, you can hide the persistent search bar by navigating to : Go to Nova Settings > Desktop > Persistent Search Bar > Select "None".

You need to install the google search apk before the google now launcher

If you go to google now, and then go to settings (the three dot menu button if its a soft key) theres a section that says notifications. That section has a part titled Urgent Updates and has the option to set a ringtone or turn on vibrate. As far as I know this should change the sound for the alert since it says urgent updates include public alerts. Just ...
