    OK Google is now working for a number of countries outside the US now. Definitely working in the UK on both my Nexus 5 and her Moto G

    No need to set your language to US.

    Thanks. I had no idea and had mine set on English (US). Have now set it to 'proper English'(!) and, yes, it works perfectly. ;)

    I haven't done this but, of course, it could have updated automatically.

    Thanks. That's exactly the same as mine - except for the 'TV lineup and video-on-demand provider configuration' entry, although I don't think that's something I'd be interested in anyway.

    The update is great. I like the cards for searched items.
