Replacing "Google voice dialer" with Google Now /search
I'm still trying to configure my phone so that it's my ultimate laziness enhancer but there are still quite a few hurdles. One of them being Google Now. In all honesty I love the concept of it and I'm still trying to make it work, but there are so many little details here and there that make it impractical. But, I digress.
What I'm trying to do is, every time I press the mic button on my wired headset to call up Google now, I'm greeted by this:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
This program does not interest me in the least. It's extremely limited (just calls) and very cumbersome. The strange thing is that this only occurs while the phone is locked /screen off. If I press the headset button while I'm using the phone it immediately brings up Google Now/Search . I'd like to extend this capability to when the screen is off so I can play my music, and send texts or set reminders +much more while my phone is in my pocket. Why? Well apart from the general brilliance of the notion, it's extremely cold outside. I have to wear gloves (still cold even then) and I can't use my phone with my gloves , not to mention how uncomfortable it is to search for anything in my pockets with a glove on. I'd like to avoid this hassle while on the road /walking by being able to use Google now with a touch of a button.
I've already disabled S Voice(because I want to use Google now) but the phone keeps defaulting to Google voice dialer in the conditions described above. I've searched high and low for an answer to no avail so I'm hoping someone here can provide the miracle.
Thank you guys in advance!
