Trusted voice ("OK Google")
When you say "Ok Google" from a secure lock screen and we're able to recognize your voice, you can ask Google to do things for you, or visit sites, without manually unlocking your device.

Google displays Weather conditions using Weather Underground as per Google Web Search Features page.
All weather conditions and forecasts are provided by Weather Underground, Inc.
So, Google Now also might be picking from the same source.
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 ...
Finally found the answer. I had four Google accounts - one of them could not sync because it required domain policy to be enforced, and I hadn't allowed that. I connected the tablet to my laptop and used adb logcat to see what was being logged when the error was displayed:
I/GLSUser (28125): GLS error: DeviceManagementRequiredOrSyncDisabled <<...
In Android 4.4:
Open Google Now.
Press the Options button in upper right corner of the Stock Card.
Press the Right Arrow to cycle through options for the card.
When asked about "Interested in the stock UNWANTED-STOCK-NAME?", tap "NO".
In older versions:
This should do it for you:
Open Google Now
Press the menu button
This feature isn't available as of now. But you should frequently check the Google Now app page for such updates. This feature is available on Siri though, but that's probably irrelevant right now. In the meantime, you can still get turn by turn navigation to take you home by saying " directions to home". It'd be a good app feature though.
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 a way of forcing a certain app to be in different locale / language than your general phone settings!
you need to be rooted
install "xposed framework" from xposed.info
within this app install a module "app settings"
within this module search for "quicksearchbox" (it's the google search app)
change its locale to "english-us"
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 ...
I have found that if I search for an address (or other location), not too long after that I get a card with driving directions to that location. If I tap the card, I'm asked if I "care about travel time to this location". Usually I say no, but if I say yes I'll have a new card that gives me the travel time to that location, just like for work or home.
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 ...
According to this help, Google Now notifications can be limited or turned off.Most notifications for Google Now cards can be turned off or set to low or standard priority. Low priority notifications appear at the bottom of the notifications shade without any additional signal.From the lower right corner of the Google Now screen, touch Menu > Settings > ...
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! :)
I think you need to adjust the settings in the Google Maps application that control this. Launch Maps and press the overflow menu icon (the three dots in the bottom right on Vanilla Android; you may need to access your settings slightly differently on other devices with custom UI skins), then go to Settings => Location settings and scroll down. You should ...
I was just looking for the same thing to be able to run my phone in English, but my Navigation application in my native language (dutch). I found a program called localized apps program on XDA Developers: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1174443
It lets you create a shortcut for an app for a different language (it actually changes your phone ...
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 ...
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....
