Exclamation Google Now is not available on the Nexus 5. How i can fix it?

Hello everyone, i'm trying to solve a problem that I'm having with the Google now on the new nexus 5. The slide from left to right option on the home page to open the google now is not available on the nexus 5. I have uninstalled the updates, reinstalled the updates, cleaned the data, removed and re-add the account in the Google Settings - Search - Account & privacy - Google Account, but still i'm not having the option of google now and google cards to enable it. How i can fix this issue and enable the google now? Have in mind that the location services inside the location-settings says not available in Cyprus. is it this the reason or takes time to enable the google now from google because the gmail that is on the nexus 5 was on gingerbread phone before?

thank you

Have you tried long pressing on the home screen for the options and selecting Settings and enabling through there? I'm not sure about your location settings but this should enable Google Now.

Are you a Google apps user? If so you need to enable Google now in the Google apps administration.

Have you changed your launcher? Google Now (slide from left) is only available on the stock launcher. (I don't think anyone has created a launcher with this option yet. (If so please share the info)

It's a Google service - you need a Google account. Create a Gmail account and log in to phone with that (or play store at least) and it should work - otherwise I would try the Google support forums.

From the home screen, tap the google search icon (or aka the google now bar)
you should see something that says get google now
tap it and follow the steps and select your account

i had to do that on my nexus 5
