Default Google Now stopped talking to me

It answers my questions but doesn't talk to me.

Speech Output is set to 'Always speak'.
Google on my Nexus7 still talks to me.

Is it mad at me?

Have you deleted any programs? Try a factory reset and see if that helps.

Did you do something to piss it off?? lol

Seriously, try restarting your phone and see if it was just some weird glitch.

I have a Bionic but I came across this thread by searching because I was having the same issue all evening, trying to show people how it worked and looking like an ass when it refused to talk to me lol.

The media volume was the problem. For some reason even if I have the Google Now screen open and trying to turn the volume up, it doesn't recognize that I'm trying to raise the media volume. Had to go into settngs>sound>volumes and turn media back up.

I had this problem out of the blue, but turns out it was a setting I enabled. I had Personalized Recognition enabled, and once I disabled it then it started working again.

I had this happen to me as well....the showing people what my phone can do and g now being silent. LOL
And I couldn't adjust the volume either without going into settings.
Hopefully Google will correct that.

Wink For those who tried everything and still nothing - try this

Guys, there is my solution:

- Set your locale to whatever you want
- Set the Google Now Voice Language to English US
- Voice Output to Always
- Remove the tick(untick the box) on Hide Offensive Words

I spent hours of tinkering with this and tried all kinds of options, but in the end that solved it for me. This is because recently there was an update to Google Search, which is the application designation for Google Now and it introduced this bug.

I have my locale to my native one English UK en-GB and everything works like a charm as it should be and as it used to work before the update.
