General :: New Google Search - Google Now Doesn't Show Cards
Nov 14, 2013
Just installed the new Google Search. But i dont have any options to turn on cards, like TV shows, local transport etc. Do these appear over time? I only have 4 things in "Everything else" but i have seen people have like 20+
My mom has an HTC Inspire. She uses the stock HTC calendar to access her Calendar, but her google calendar isn't showing up. I have double checked my accounts and Calendar is checked under the sync settings. However, when I go into the HTC calendar, the only calendar available is the PC Sync calendar. When I go into settings, and Calendars, the Google Calendar doesn't show up there either. I have added another google account to the fun just to check and it syncs the account normally.
I have a debranded Desire, originally sold by Telus in Canada, which I updated to Froyo using the instructions on this site. Everything works fine except that all google search results post UK based urls, rather than US and local search results. I have Google settings to remember my location but I cannot figure out to stop this from happening. It happens using the google search button or when using a bookmarked google web page.
I'm aware that the home key cannot be caught, and I'm worried that a long-press on the Search key is another "Android-OS protected" key press. Just for testing, I tried to catch all keys with this code within my Activity, but it does not stop the Google Voice Search dialog from being triggered
l uninstalled Google Search and Google Play store apps, but they were not completely uninstalled and now I can't reinstall them because the store says they are installed. I cannot find them on my android tablet and so I cannot use them. What is a good app to completely uninstall them. Some of these apps will not install on my Lenovo tablet.
I'm using the latest version of Google Maps on JB 4.2.2 [Nexus 4]..I noticed that I cannot edit the names of my locations in "My Places" in the phone app. So I used Google Bookmarks (google.com/bookmarks) from my PC to edit/rename My Places. However, the names do not sync or carry through to the Google Maps app on the phone. The names in the app are still the generic names, coordinates or street names.
Is there any way to change the names of My Places and get them to sync with the phone app? Really baffling!
On my DroidX, Google Sky doesn't show up in my list of applications, but if I search for it, it does. I can launch it from the search results. I can also add an application widget to the home page and select Google Sky in its settings as the app to launch. Why doesn't it show up in the list of applications (The icon-based list you get when pressing the triangle-in-a-circle icon from the home page)?
I have a Google galaxy nexus ( from Google). The Google now works as far as voice recognition and asking questions, however cards are not displayed and at the bottom of the Google now screen I do not have a area that is supposed to have "more Google cards" button. I have activated everything I can think of and cards still do not display. I even allowed google to save web searches on my account ( its active). It also said to tap in the Google now window go to settings and then "Google now" to turn on or off....well I do not have a "Google now" option....strange! I am on 4.1 Jelly Bean ( did not root ) its standard upgrade.
When I call out using Google Voice to someone and I have their contact info linked to their facebook it doesn't show their profile picture. Yet if I call them with my actual phone's number it shows the profile picture. Ditto when they call in. Anyone have a fix for this or is this Motorola's problem?
I have my hero using built in calendar app.I have a google calendar and a Exchange calendar, I also have My calendar, not sure what that is. I would like to have all the calendars sync using the phone as the main source. So for example if I create a meeting on my phone it also shows on my exchange calendar and my google calendar. At the moment I have to add a calendar entry under the calendar I want the entry to show up on.So If I add an entry to my exchange calendar it doesn't show in google calendar. Can anyone suggest a sync method, without using PC, just phone.
I would like to create a search in my app which acts like the map search in the Google Maps app. I have creates an an auto complete text view which updates dynamically based on the results of the Geocoder.GetLocationByName() Method. However the results retrieved from this function are really bad and not at all consistent with the text I pass to it. Is there a better method of doing this to achieve accurate results?
Google saved search setting. Every time I go to the Google main site and tap on the blanks space to type in a search all my previous searches appear. In the past there was a "do not save searches" setting you could select in preferences, but it doesn't exist now. Now I have a option to turn web history off which I did but my previous search history's still appear when I try and make a new search. how to "not save search history" with chrome browser for android.
If I do a Google search via the search app or the search bar widget and for whatever reason go back to the home screen, how do I get back to the search results page? If I do a search and leave the search results page I can't seem to find a way to get back to it without opening a new search altogether.
Why doesn't autocorrect work/appear when I'm typing in my browser (Chrome or Default) and also, more annoyingly, when I'm typing in Google Now search?
I have tried this with both the android keyboard and with Swiftkey 3 (which I use normally). I have read in a couple of other forums that the problem was fixed in an ICS minor point update but I did not find that to be the case. In fact, I'm now running a (relatively) stock JB ROM and it's still a problem.
Of note: autocorrect would appear on the old google search before I got Google Now...
That's the widget below on the screen, but every time I press it just goes to the Google search page or if I hold it it just opens up Nova Launcher actions. Is there a way to do it from the homescreen using voice?
I'm trying to delete search history on the Google search app that come with Android. I have delete Web history on the Google website and also tried deleting the cache and app data. Previous results are still showing up in the app. How do I delete them completely?
I have just performed my first ROM flash on my S3 with Android Revolution HD 14
With Jellybean comes Google Now, the Android equivalent of Siri. I have been experimenting with this and have discovered that despite my Google account settings being set to safe search filter off, and that I have turned off the Block Offensive Words option in settings, Google Now filters things by default.
For example, if I say 'Images of Large Hadron Collider' Google Now will duly serve me image results as requested, but if for example I say 'Images of furious sweaty butt sex' it just provides me with a web search and I subsequently have to select images myself. Even when I do, it takes me through to images that have quite clearly been filtered. Not only this, but if I were to request images of something where there were mixed images of clean and not so clean, it would only serve me up the filtered pics.
So my question; is there a way to turn off the safe search elements so that my internet can be delivered to me as I wish, or do I have to put up with Google not showing me what I have requested? (which isn't furious sweaty butt sex)
Lots of people underestimated Apple and thought Android phones were ahead of the game. Judging by this video, it seems like a tie if not Apple has the race still won. I mean, the fluidness of iPhone is just amazing, which honestly makes it look more intriguing.
I'm writing this after I just previewed my post. I obviously don't know how to post pictures. What file hosting sites are you guys using to share pictures?
I don't know why these links are not coming up below. The HTML tags are IMG and /IMG which look right to me. [URL]
Oh, well. I don't know why it won't embed but at least the links are live so you can click on them to see what my original post is talking about.
I recently installed and started using Google Tracks and Google Earth last night and now, this morning, I can't do a Google search in the search bar widget or in Chrome url field. Here are some of the results I have been getting after trying. How do I correct things so that I can continue searching as normal?
This has been a rather annoying issue for quite a while. Whenever I use the commands like "Listen to (Artist or Song)" or "Play (Artist or Song)" it never seems to recognize it. Instead it just does web search of what I said, I'm not sure where the problem is in it though. I have Poweramp and Play Music installed with plenty of music on file.
I have a T-mobile prism II (yes I know, not the best phone in the world) and I have the most recent version of the Google search app and I have downloaded the Google launcher, but every time I attempt to use the Google experience launcher, I get an error message saying "Unfortunately, Google Search has stopped."
