How can I get Google Now/Search to work offline? I've got Google voice typing to work offline through settings > language & input methods but I'm unable to use it with Google Now. Anyone have any ideas?

ex: I'd like to just say "Open Settings" to be able open the settings app without being online...

I'm struggling with this issue as well. Sometimes when I'm traveling, I'll be in an area with no data connection or WiFi. I can say "OK Google" to activate the voice search...however, any command I give it (i.e. Play 'artist') is met with "Can't reach Google at the moment. You can still use the mic to place calls. Say "Call" and a name or number." I know the offline voice recognition works, because I can turn off my WiFi and data and use the voice input to write text. I have Xposed installed and I tried the "GoogleOfflineVoice" module, but I'm still met with the same message.

Does anyone have any ideas of a work around for this? This is particularly frustrating because I used the Google Search API and Tasker to automate a lot of my phone usage while I'm in the car. However, if I don't have a data connection, it no longer functions.

If you don't have a data connection it's never going to work. It has to go to Google servers where the database is and all the heavy lifting takes place
