    One thing that really bothers me about Google Now on a mobile device is that if you say "Set a timer for 'x' minutes" it will set an alarm (vs a countdown timer) for 'x' minutes into the future. If you say the same command to Google Search on Chrome on a PC it will set a countdown timer. I would really like it if I could just say "Okay Google (Now)... Set a timer for 10 minutes" and then have it start counting down.

    Is there any way to make this happen?

    Does anyone know if KK updates Google Now to the ability to set a timer?

    Thank you

    I just tried this on my nexus 5 it uses the alarm as countdown timer but it gets the job done

    Yeah. That's not what I'm looking for. I want a regular countdown timer.

    Use S Voice or Dragon. They are better for personal assistant types of things. Now is good for what it is, but it isn't on their functional level yet...
