    Default Nova Launcher adds voice control. Finally

    The only thing I was still missing from GEL...Nova finally added it. Hands-free voice control on the home screen. I officially have no use for GEL anymore.

    Just tested. It works pretty good. I checked against a different account, and this on the normal version of the app, not the Beta release.

    Testing it now. Doesn't seem to work all that well compared to my wife's Galaxy S5.

    I think it requires KitKat to work.

    I am running Kit Kat on my Note 3 but it's not very reliable. It works from time to time. Glad to have it though.

    It works fine on my Galaxy S3. The command works a bit differently in that it doesn't pull up the Google Now voice command box until after you say OK Google and start speaking (of course this may simply be a delay) but it's finally here. Was so tired of using GEL which frankly did not have the customization features that I want. Bravo Nova, still the one to beat!

    Confirmed it does not require KitKat...Mt BF's Galaxy S3 works just fine with it, and it is on 4.3, not Kitkat.
