Google Now not obeying commands, searching instead.

I don't know what I did, but even a factory reset hasn't restored this capability on my Note 2.

I used to be able to tap the mic in the Google Now search bar and say things like:
Locate nearest Home Depot
Navigate to nearest Home Depot
Call nearest Home Depot
Create new appointment, dentist 2:30 next Friday.

Now all it does is do a google search.

What did I do and how do I make it work again?

I have seen some posts over at XDA that suggest making sure your system language is set to English. Not sure that will help or not.

Everything was set to English in the system and voice search settings. I switched it to Chinese and back to English and now it works.
Thanks!
