    You need to have the Google Experience Launcher. You can sideload it but it's only on the N5 by default
    Everything in this post is 100% accurate...I think

    R.I.P. Motorola...and what could have been the best smartphone line ever

    That's the standard way of bringing up Google Now--pressing and holding Home until you see an arc with the Google logo appear, then swiping up. The OP is asking about how on the N5 you can swipe from the left to bring in the Google Now page. It's specific to the N5 on KitKat. You can try to install it on other devices running KitKat (there are various articles that describe how to install the Google Experience Launcher, as mentioned by UJ95x), but I've read of various minor glitches when you install it on non-N5 devices.

    I have GEL on my Nexus 7 and it works fine. (There are various places you can download it and install it on the Nexus.)

    I can swipe left and it pulls up Google Now.
