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!

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 <<...

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 ...

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 ...

According to the Google Now page sports cards are : Shown based on Web History so I suppose there are still many links related to the Giants in your web history. Try to go to your google history page, search for everything related to Giants, then remove the shown items, then maybe Google Now will understand that you are no longer interested in Giants ...

I was searching for a fix to this exact problem and came across your post. I just found this. I remembered your thread and thought i would come back to share this with you. The guide says to: Open Bluetooth Launch and scroll down to “Voice Search”. Tap on it to expand it out, then select: “com.google.android.voicesearch.RecognitionActivity” but i found ...

Go into settings -> apps and click all. Then find voice dialer and disable it. That should disable the voice dialer app and Google Now should come up when you press the call button. If that doesn't work you can always reenable voice dialer.

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. In ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

Invoke Google Now again to be in the same place as is on your snapshot. Just press Back button to hide keyboard and press three dots button bottom right and select 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 ...
