    Hey everybody, this is my first post on the forum.

    On my galaxy S5 recently, over half of the time that I want to go home, and i hit the button, it just takes my to google now instead. Is there a way to change this setting?

    Thanks

    When you just tap it, you are taken to google now? Or when you long press?

    It was happening to me after the 4.4.4 update on att. I just did a restart and it went back to only coming up when I long pressed the home button.

    This has been happening to my phone (S5 Active) and a friend's phone (S5) for a few days now. Both AT&T, both recently received the 4.4.4 update. Restarting helped for a short period of time, maybe a day or two. Bumping this thread for visibility and hopefully a permanent fix, because we are both ready to run our phones over it's so annoying.

    Same issue, restarting makes it better temporarily. Agreed, very annoying. I like my home screen. Samsung should be able to afford testing before releasing.

    BUMP

    Same thing happening to me....I disabled google now but it doesn't actually help. Now upon pressing the home button it just delays or stays on the page or app that is currently open. Hopefully someone will have an answer soon

    Yep I'm having the same issue...I made an account just to reply and follow this thread.
    I'm SO pissed off every time I try to use my phone now. You can disable the S-Voice double tap shortcut but can't disable the Google Now "Hold home button" shortcut - WHICH it goes to Google Now almost EVERY SINGLE time I hit the Home button, I never hold it

    Have you guys tried removing the Google app and re-adding it?

    I am having the same problem and it's beyond annoying. It started today, a few days after installing the latest updates. I have an S5 with AT&T.

    I just tried double clicking the home button and it seems to take me back to my home screen and skipping google. Even if this continues to work, it's still not acceptable that Google has hijacked my home button.
