Default How to disable S-VOICE and get GOOGLE NOW with double click of home button?

Is there a easier/better way to do this now than originally explained in this post?

Replace S-Voice with Google Now (Home button double tap)

Default Can you wake up Google Now?

Can use Google Now by saying "Hi Galaxy" or whatever? Or is S Voice the only option for that?

I set my phone up to do exactly this by using the Home 2 shortcut app. It's on the play store.

Great question. I did this and love it.
Download Home2 Share and follow directions.

You will be choosing Voice search as the app in the configuration, not google voice (Voice search is the name of the google component).
Make sure you go to s voice and turn off the S voice connection to the home button.

Perhaps that is the reason I could not get this working.

Will try it again.

Can use some help...

Ran into this problem before and I forgot how I figured it out...

Followed all the steps. However, when pressing the final CLOSE button, I don't get the "Complete Action Using" box.

Anything I may have done wrong?

Thanks.

I did two things.

first, load s voice (double tap home)
click menu button, then in those options you can unclick the "use home button for s voice"
next go to applications manager and disable it altogether.

Nevermind, I see it is in the settings for the S Voice application and not general settings....

What I can not figure out is how to set in Step 4 Home2 Shortcut a s a default app. What is it becoming a default app for? Do I just need to click the close button to do this as instructed, or am I supposed to do something else? So far, I have followed all the steps up to this point and double-tapping the home button does nothing.

Thanks!

Go to application manager then view all applications. Then touchwiz and then clear defaults. Just don't clear data or else you'll lose all of your homescreens, etc

Still can't get it to work for some reason.

....and I have done this twice before successfully on my Galaxy Note II and S3.

I disabled S-Voice in both menu and Application Manager.

I am using Nova Launcher Prime. I cleared defaults under that Program in Application Manager.

Using Home2Shortcut I chose VOICE SEARCH. I chose SHORT presses. I hit okay and when the little confirm menu came up I selected NOVA LAUNCHER, ALWAYS and OK.

I double Press and nothing comes up.

Oh where oh where did I go wrong?

You needed to select Home2Shortcut instead of Nova Launcher on the popup.

No problem. I have been using this configuration for a while now. If you can get used to setting the interval to Very Short it really takes or the lag when you just want to restore to the homepage.

Default Replace S Voice with Google Voice Search

There is an easier solution, and it also works with always listening voice wake-up!

I made a little app using Tasker. Available in the Play Store for free: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hu.viczian.deathtosvoice

Please read the instructions carefully.

Google Now, Home 2 Shortcut AND Nova Launcher are MUST HAVES for your GN 3. S Voice is a MUST DISABLE. PERIOD.

I am giving your app a try. Will see after a few days which method I prefer. I love having the screen-off voice command even if there are compromises.
