    Hello everyone,
    I don't post much, but I just got sick and tired of no good virtual assistant being available for bb10 so I googled "google now apk"
    I then downloaded and installed the pack.....guess what it works. the command "ok google "just like the Google now launcher on my note 2....anyway I was very excited, hope this helps anyone else looking for a voice search option...
    Peace everyone!!

    No, you'll have to ask for those. Unfortunately, it's just the search command via voice. It's Google Search, not Google Now. Google Now is actually the voice assistant

    I've never being able to make any leeway with the Cards. I'm not even sure what they are. Have you tried using a modded Google Play Services and Google Accounts apk? Might change something

    I haven't yet buy I will check it out and see what happens....if I have any luck I will let you know....the cards are sort of useful. for traffic alerts going to work, weather or stocks...junk like that....

    Sports scores and news, traffic and weather info, recently searched things all show up in Google Now. It's great for travel. It will tell you when to leave your home to get to the airport on time. It gives you cards for all your travel info, like hotels, gate and departure info for connecting flights. I love it. I'm not sure you'll be able to get it to work without Google services working.
