    just got it lastnight so got some questions.. i usualy have Maps disabled but Now seems to want it enabled?
    aparently Now talks to you, id never use voice input but why isnt it talking to me?
    in the guide it says it learns by what you ask it but does that include text input?
    (im scottish and it wont understand me)
    thanx

    Its only gonna enable your GPS upon your permission it will still give u directions even when GPS is off and on the talking back issue it only talks back upon certain questions

    lol brer i hate to say it but like everyone says its an anticlimax so far.

    crazy thing is its the voice recognition (something i didnt care about) thats impressed me most
    i still dont understand expanding notifications.....?
    none of mine have changed exept that you can long press to go to the app in app manager....

    Certain apps like power amp gmail Google music has notifications that u can expand

    When I press the left soft button I just get what I had on ICS. I press the search button and it doesn't do anything. Saying this I have my maps voice etc disabled.

    I've just updated my S3, but there seems to be no Google Now loaded with it. I have tried to install it, but have had no luck so far. Looking at settings there is nothing to indicate that Google Now is installed and if I ask it anything it will just do a net search. It does not give me any sensible answers, oral or written. For instants "Do I need an umbrella" will not give me the weather. But umbrella related sites. Google Now looks really cool, so it would be great to have it.
    Can anyone help?

    ^ I have exactly same problem. I've tried to ask it the same questions I see in pictures but the Google Now will just search for the Internet. It only gives me search results. I does NOT give me any of these:

    ask it "whats the time" and it should speak the time "whats the weather" and it speaks weather in your town" i use "english generic" voice input coz im scottish, make sure yours is set to whats suitable for you.
