    Default Disable Google Now

    How do you disable Google Now?

    I'm trying to figure out why my battery drains so fast since the jelly bean update.

    Default Re: Disable Google Now

    Open google now. On the card that initially comes up there is a settings menu (3 vertical dots) in the lower right. tap on the settings option. At the top of the settings menu, you will see "google now". Tap it and at the top of the screen is the option to turn off Google now.

    I did that and I'm still getting card notifications. Will reboot and see it the odd setting sticks.

    You can also go into settings/app manager/all/disable voice search

    Have you tried a "Factory Data Reset" yet? I had awful battery drain right after the JB update. I did that and let the phone run down to under 10% battery life and performed a regular restart. This worked great for me.

    Good luck.

    Cool Re: Disable Google Now

    Open Google Now > Click Menu and select Settings > Click Google Now > On top right you will have the option to turn off Google Now.

    Disabling Google Now will surely improve battery life but nothing majorly.
