Default How To Replace S-Voice With Google Now (Or Anything Else, Really)

I know there are a similar threads for other Samsung devices, but didn't see one here.

If anybody is wanting to launch Google Now from the home button instead of S-Voice, it's very easy and can be done with the help of the free "Home2 Shortcut" app on Google Play.

Check it out here: Home2 Shortcut

If you would like instructions, check out this YouTube video (for the GS3 but it works on the S4 as well). Replace S Voice with Google Now

Yup, that's certainly another way to access Google Now. The solution I mentioned was just if you wanted to launch Google Now by double-tapping the home button (which normally opens S-Voice by default). Thanks for mentioning the other options as well!
