Google Now is no longer speaking to me on Nexus 7. Why?Support

    When I first got the tablet it worked just fine, and I had great fun asking it random questions like "What is the tallest mountain in north america?" or "what is the atomic mass of barium?"

    But now if I ask those same questions it just google searches the phrase I asked instead of speaking the answer to me like it used to. It appears as though the browser (Chrome) is briefly directed to an URL that signs me out of my google account before proceeding to search for the answer and I have no idea why.

    Everything appears to be ok in my Google Now settings. It is set to always speak the output. Any idea what could be causing this?

    Maybe you left the toilet seat up one too many times and she's just not speaking to you... :D

    Just tried asking for the temperature and got a voice response answer. A Now change for me since the 4.1.2 update...no images on the Google Now page. No team icons, no restaurant images, nothing.

    Mine just does a Google search as well. I can't say if this is a change or not, as I haven't used Google Now much.

    I just asked Google Now where Neil Armstrong was born, and she told me that he was born in wikipedia... go figure...

    Did you change the voice from english US to something else like english uk or another language? I notice that when you do that, its no longer as responsive.

    I tried switching to english uk and when I'm on the google now screen it no longer recognized me saying "Google" and searching is far worse. My bad british accent didn't help. I also tried french and it didn't understand a single thing I said even though I thought I was speaking french pretty well.
