Indeed, there are some uses for it, like appointments, package tracking, and the voice assistant. I find many parts to be less than useful, and the battery drain that comes with using it to be an unwanted issue. That is why I just choose to not activate Google Now after each rom flash, and set the voice assistant app to be the long press of my added search button. That way I get the useful part without any of the negatives because this doesn't active Google Now.
