    Default Google Now Search Problem

    Hi, I am sorry if this has been asked before but if it has I can't find it. I am having a problem with Google search / Google now search. When I type something in it will often just look like it's finished, but with no results. If I click the images button and then go back to normal web it will show - but it's a pain to do this.


    I know the first thing to do would be to reinstall Google search and see if it happens still, but I don't want Google now to forget all the info it knows (i.e. where I go etc...)
    So I guess what I'm asking is 1. Is this a known bug and 2. Will removing and reinstalling Google search forget my Google now data?

    Many thanks!

    It shouldn't forget any of that stuff. Try the uninstall and reinstall.

    To take this a bit further, Now should retain all this info between devices. It's not stored locally on a phone or tablet.

    Uninstalled updates and the search went back to behaving as normal. Going to update again and see if the problem persists.

    Reinstalled updated and search doesn't work...uninstalling until there is a fresh update.

    Have you reported the issue to Google yet?
