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 are 3 options which I have found. If you use Inbox by Google it comes with an add reminder shortcut available in widgets. (This opens up in the Inbox app, and the dialog to create a reminder is not as friendly as Google Now, especially if you want to add a custom time.) Supposedly Google Now will ask you if you would like to add a shortcut to the home ...

Whilst it is possible for apps to make themselves available to be searched, each applications needs to be updated to implement app indexing in order for them to show up in this list. I don't think it is possible to add additional providers without the apps themselves being updated to support this.

Try Nova Launcher. It has an option to disable persistent search bar.

There is some critical error for the new android Oreo (for me is nexus 6p) which make a system crash on the desktop (google now launcher) and on settings (you can't open app list).

I discovered an approach that, at least for two weeks now, seems to have worked. I tried a twist on this approach which I had mentioned above: I did find one thing that says to "Disable" (or Uninstall, but Uninstall is not an available option, but disable more-or-less the same) the Google App, and re-enable it. This works, but only for about 1 day,...

From my own experience of Lollipop, it's Google's new concept to show you everything you're doing as a separate activity. Unless you go down the route of rooting and applying some mod (I don't know of one which does this), the only solution I see is to get into the habit of always closing them as soon as you open them. (Easier said than done, I can say for ...

UPDATE 2014-01-27 17:...
