How to Replace S Voice with Google Now on Your Samsung Galaxy Device

If you’re sick and tired of using S Voice, you’re probably after an alternative. After all, the voice command functionality is very useful when it works. Google Now uses some pretty state-of-the-art technology, so it’s a very worthy alternative to Samsung’s existing S Voice. This article will cover the basic process for adding Google Now as your default voice command app.

Ensure You Have Google Now on Your Device


 

This may seem obvious, but it’ll save you the headache. Check in your apps for the “Google” app. Easy, right?

Download and Install the Home2 Shortcut


 

On opening the app, you’ll be presented with a rather archaic app design – but don’t let that fool you. This app does exactly what it says it does.

There’s only three steps to do now. Chose the Home > Home application as “Google” as shown below:

Follow the rest of the steps presented by the app, including setting a single home press to take you to your favorite home launcher (probably NovaLauncher).
