Disattivare Google Now su Android
Android it is the system that ensures the highest level of integration with Google Now, the one that allows you to make the most of all its potential. If you use a terminal based on this platform and you want to know how to disable Google Now, take five minutes of free time and put into practice the suggestions I am about to give you.
Disable the Google Now gesture
You want to prevent Google Now or the new Google Assistant from automatically activating when you swipe the button Home on your smartphone? Then open the menu Settings Android (the gear icon located on the home screen or in the screen with the list of all the apps installed on the device), go to Applications o App and presses the icon ofgear which is located at the top.
In the screen that opens, select the item Predefined appwhy are you cheating? Voice assistance and input and set the option Assistance app su None. In this way, swiping the Home button will no longer happen and Google Now will not be activated.
If you are using a terminal on which a version of Android with a custom interface is installed, you may need to select slightly different items in the settings menu. For example, if you are using a Huawei device with EMUI interface, to set the default assistance app you need to go to App, activate the card Advanced, select the items Default settings> Assistance and voice commands and set the option Assistance app su None.
If with the procedure described above you have not been able to obtain the desired result, try to install Swipeup Utility: it is a free app that allows you to "free" the gesture of the Home button and remove the association between Google Now and quest 'last. Using it, you can completely remove the Home button gesture or associate it with another action, such as launching an app of your choice.
To use Swipeup Utility, all you have to do is download it from the Google Play Store, start it and press the button OK. You will be automatically redirected to the app settings for Android assistance and voice commands: then tap on the voice Assistance app and choose Swipeup Utility from the box that appears on the screen. Then confirm by answering Accept to the notice that is shown to you.
Once you have associated Swipeup Utility with the Home button gesture, you can choose which operation to perform instead of starting Google Now. Then start Swipeup Utility by selecting its icon from the Android drawer, presses on the item Choose action and choose the action you want your smartphone to perform when you swipe the Home button from bottom to top: Nothing in no way; Quick search for the research; Recent apps to view the list of recently used apps, and so on.
If you change your mind, you can go back at any time and choose a new action from the Swipeup Utility internal menu.
Disable the Google Now page
Are you bothered by the Google Now page that appears when you swipe left on your smartphone's home screen? In this case, the most effective solution you can take is to change launcher, that is to change the application that manages the home screen of your Android device.
Personally, I recommend that you turn to Nova Launcher, which is extremely lightweight and allows you to deeply customize all aspects of the Android home screen (including the Google Now display, which is disabled by default). Nova Launcher can be downloaded and used for free without any time limitation, however I would like to point out that a paid version is available (which costs 3 euros, although it is often found at a discounted price) that offers additional features, such as creating folders. in the app drawer and the ability to hide apps.
To set Nova Launcher as the default launcher on your device, download the application from the Play Store, then go to the menu Settings Android (the gear icon located on the home screen or in the screen with the list of all the apps installed on the device), go to Home page and select Nova Launcher from the menu that opens. Now press the button Home of your smartphone or tablet and you will find a new home screen managed by Nova Launcher without the Google Now screen.
If you use a version of Android with a custom interface, you should be able to set the default system launcher in a slightly different way than what we have just seen together. For example, if you are using a Huawei device equipped with the EMUI interface, to set the default launcher you need to go to the menu Impostazioni> App, activate the card Advanced, select the items Default settings> App launch and choose Nova Launcher from the screen that opens.
In case of second thoughts, you can restore your old launcher by going back to the Android settings or activate Google Now support in Nova Launcher by downloading the appropriate companion app (to be installed via the APK package).
Disable Google Now Cards
You don't want to deactivate the Google Now page but only the tabs with the news present in it? Then know that you do not need to change launchers or install third-party applications.
All you have to do is open the Google app or access the Google Now page which is activated by swiping to the left in the launcher, press the button ≡ and go on Settings.
In the screen that opens, tap on the item Your feedsposta su OFF the lever for the option Mostra feed and that's it: by accessing the Google Now page or opening the Google app, you will find the "big G" search bar but not the news selected for you by the Mountain View giant.
In case of second thoughts, of course, you can retrace your steps by accessing the settings of the Google app and reactivating the functions you previously deactivated. Easier than that ?!
Disable Google Now voice commands
If you want to disable the Google Assistant, the evolution of Google Now that allows you to give voice commands to the phone, start apps and receive information of any kind from the Internet using your own voice (I told you about it in detail in my tutorial on how activate Google Assistant), start the application Google, pigia sul pulsating ≡ i went his Settings.
In the screen that opens, presses on the item Settings related toGoogle Assistanti went his Telephone and move up OFF the lever next to the item Google Assistant: by doing this you will not be able to call up Google Assistant either within the Google app or in the launcher of your device (by saying the phrase "Ok Google" or by swiping the Home button).
In case of second thoughts, you can retrace your steps and reactivate both Google Assistant and the "Ok Google" command by going to the Google app settings and reactivating the levers relating to the two functions in question.
