Updated Google Now today, and I have a few bugs.

The worst bug: When I tap on the menu key, the menu only quickly flashes.

I cannot get a card back if I accidentally swipe it away.

I cannot remove a stock from the stock card.

The vioce search is not working.

Also, although not a bug, the widget design looks too simplistic, displays minimal info (guess Google wants us to come inside), takes up only 4x3 space as a 4x4 widget. If I shrink it down to 4x3, then it will take 4x2 space, and so on. Drives me nuts.

As their flagship app, I am surprised at the low quality of this major update.

Anyone else care to share their feedback?

Maybe uninstall and re-install? Maybe try a reboot? I'm on rooted bone stock and it works fine.. I think as more cards come up the widget will use more space hence the large 4x4 space required .. Voice search working fine as well as the menu key long press

After you use long press to enter Google now, could you tap on menu again and see what happens? Mine will only flash the menu. Definitely a bug.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. Still the same bugs. I have also seen the same complaints in the play store now.

Re: My Note 2 doesn't work with the updated Google Now
I finally had to uninstall the update and everything is fine again. Saw a lot of similar complaints on Google play. Can't believe this comes from Google and their flagship app.

Yes, my menu button in Google Now is not working either, just to confirm and complain. WTF. Such an obvious mishap. I have not seen other phones complain about it though.

my google now is working as it was before as far as i can tell. I do a long press on the menu button on the 'button' next to the home key or long press on the google search bar to bring me into google now. Then I press the menu key which brings me to settings page

The settings page has the Google Now at the top, then voice, then phone search, then privacy and accounts. Everything works fine running cleanrom 4.0.5

My menu also flashes and then goes away.

Re: My Note 2 doesn't work with the updated Google Now
The only work around is clicking the weather card in Google now and pressing settings. It doesn't flash then.
