    Anyone got any good Google Now tips?
    My only tip is that you can enter voice commands as text in the search bar. Handy if the voice recognition doesnt like your accent.
    The command combination i use most is "remind me "........." at/when ".................".
    Anyone know any useful commands or just cool things we can do with Now?

    Oh yeah, hitting the mic and letting it hear music to identify it is cool and imo better than Shazam or Soundhound :thumbup:

    SPEED:

    Google Now > Settings > Phone Search
    Uncheck/check only what you want Google Now to search. For example, I don't want it to search Amazon, Amazon Kindle, Google Sky Map, Browser (stock), etc. so those are unchecked

    Settings > Apps > All
    Disable "Search Application Provider"

    I would like to get to know Google Now better but I only have it on the tablet, since the phone is running GB, it's not included. I have been playing around with it and find it pretty nice.
