Default Google Now integration

Hello to all!

I have a question: how is the integration of Google now with Sense? The various tabs of Google now appears in binkfeed or is there a widget that sometimes it works and sometimes it does not like the galaxy s2 and other terminals? The voice commands how they work? They are integrated with Google now to the point that if I ask something I am given an answer on everything (at least if provided by Google now)?

It's not very good IMO, voice search only works when in the Google app - not on the widget for the home screen. Once HTC activate that I'll go back to using Sense

I believe there is an exposed module now that allows the ok google stuff from the homescreen if that's your bag.

Personally I don't touch google now for obvious reasons, but I think it would be more useful if it integrated with blinkfeed.

Nothing obvious about not using Google Now, I use it without issues so not sure what you're on about...

If I had to guess, he's concerned about his privacy. Although the way I see it, Google is collecting that information anyways, I may as well get something out of it.

That's kinda the way I see it, I just embrace Google. I'm fully invested in their services so I don't particularly care...
