This is a guide to enable Google Now Cards / Now on Tap in any country, if you get the not available in your country.
Works on Android L/M/N
NO ROOT REQUIRED


Video:




!! WARNING: THE FOLLOWING STEPS MAY VARY DEPENDING ON THE ANDROID VERSION YOU ARE IN, BUT THE GUIDE SHOULD STILL WORK !!

Instructions:
(1) Remove SIM card (if you have one)

(2) You need to come from a fresh install (factory reset)

(3) At the first time setup skip all steps. No wifi, no email, no time/date, nothing.

(4) Disable Location

(5) Connect to Wi-Fi

(6) Go to Settings > More > VPN and connect to any VPN from US or UK (I use vpnbook.com PPTP) - Add a simple pattern for security

(7) Once you are connected with the VPN, Tap the Google App

(8) Sign in with your account

(9) After you sign in, you'll see a new window introducing 'Google Now'. Click "Yes, I'm in".

(10) To enable Now on Tap go to Settings > Google > Search & Now > Now Cards > Now on Tap and enable it

(11) Insert your SIM card and delete VPN (and the pattern you set up earlier if you wish)

(12) Enjoy Now on Tap


Hit thanks if this guide helped you!

I tried it and it doesn't work. It still says not available in my country when i try to enable it at Now Cards in Settings.

1] I removed SIM card,
2] did Factory Reset,
3] Turned Off Location Services (I assume this is GPS?),
4] Enabled Developer Mode
5] Connected to my home WiFi
5] Downloaded and Installed my VPN apk
6] Choose USA server.
7] Opening Google app as it says is doing nothing - just directs to the search bar. So instead I added account. Settings/Accounts/Add Account, then added my Google Account.
8] I have a two-step verification so I had to change that to another mobile number also based in my country (Where normally Google Now is not available). After receiving the code I entered it and my account was setup.
9] After Account was set, no prompt for Google Now and Now Cards are not available in Google Settings.

10] Estimated cost of damage about 125EURO considering one working day to restore all.
11] Ideas?

Thumbs up Worked on my Nexus 5
I live in Tehran (Iran) and your tutorial worked for me.
I just need to mention that one extra step was crucial to the VPN process and that was setting up a VPN on my ADSL router.
I also had to disable TwoFactor Authentication in order to login without using the simcard.

Thanks for the tutorial.
