    Default Google Now/ Voice Search Not speaking answers?

    Anyone else having an issue where google search doesn't speak the results? It will recognize my voice bring up the answer but not speak it. When asking it the temperature or the height of the President it just brings up the answer. I thought it was supposed to verbally give you the answer as well. In the settings it's set for us english and speech output is set to always speak. I tried S Voice and that vocalized the answer. Am I missing something or does voice search no longer give verbal answers

    Seems to be a glitch with the latest version. Mine does this at times as well, if it doesn't just search. I asked "what's the weather" one day and it just Googled the phrase.

    Not sure I got that. When you used it it just did a google search for the weather and it didn't state the weather? How often does that happen? I've never gotten it to speak, no matter what I said

    Try clearing data in the settings for apps. Mine works once in awhile, but not all the time. Users report this across devices.

    I know this is a very late reply but useful for anyone coming here like i did with this problem. Mine wasn't working then i went into the setting and made sure that Web History was on - it worked after this!

    The voice output only seems to work if you have your primary language set to English (US). Don't really understand why, but that's how I got mine working...
