    Does your Google Now talk? When I see videos... Google Now talks to you like Siri or S-voice. Google Now seems to tall for the Americans... but mine has never talked.

    Does yours talk? Is there some setting I have to change?

    Update your GOOGLE SEARCH from the play store. Even if you have auto updates on it won't update. You have to do it manually.
    Mine does speak but only for certain things...If I ask what the weather is like it speaks. If I ask it to navigate to such and such, it will say
    "Navigating to..."
    Is that what you mean? Or do you mean full blown talking like Siri?

    Apparently mine does talk, I had my media volume down so low that I had never heard it before.

    Not at first, but after I set my preference language to US English, it talks back to me. Download the app called Locale Setting and change the preference to US English.

    If you already have set your phone's defaults to US-English using either the Locale Setting app or some other way, check if your media volume is not in mute.

    Its talking I guess I just wasn't asking it the right questions

    Tip for those is just ask Google what time is it and it should speak to you

    Something I really missed was the British voice from Google Navigation. Now that I downloaded Locale Setting and switched it to "English - UK", he's back!

    Thanks for the tip!
