Hello XDA,

I'd like to share with you this quick, easy tutorial about how to enable Google Now on Tap and Cards in every country and network carrier that doesn't support this service.

But first of all you must be on Lollipop or Marshmallow based ROM (I assume you are)

And most importantly you MUST be rooted. What is root? Just Google it. Do it only when you know what you're doing I'm not responsible for anything goes wrong with the process of rooting. But this tutorial itself is not harmful.

What you need is an app called Market Unlocker (attached below) simply download and install it..... And you MUST have a SIM inserted at least one (I assume you have one already)

Step1: Remove ALL your google accounts. This is EXTREMELY important.
Step2: Open the app you just installed (Market Unlocker)
Step3: Enable the unlocker to USA Verizon.
Step4: Give it root permissions.
Step5: Reboot your system.
Step6: Press your search button (hold home button on nav bar)
Step7: Tap on get started and add your google account.
Step8: Enjoy Now on Tap and Cards. :)

PS1: you can uninstall Market Unlocker app but don't disable it. Just keep it enabled and uninstall it. Otherwise, you WILL lost Now on Tap and Cards.

PS2: these steps doesn't modify your EFS data which means when you perform a factory reset or clean flash a new ROM, you have to do the process all over again.

On lollipop and KitKat, there is only Google now.
Ohh.. I see.. Thanks dude.. I've been searching how to enable now on tap on lollipop.. Is it possible? Is there any links/sites that can help me with it? Can't find one for lollipop.. Even tho i can just flash new ROM.. It's hard to find nice working rom.. Because my phone's last update was lollipop 5.1.1.. And some ROM based on 6.0 and later didn't work too well with my phone.. As far i know.. I'm using sony Xperia z1 compact if that helps.. Thanks :)

Google introduced Google now on tap in Marshmallow so unfortunately there is no way to enable it on lollipop.
This method enables Google now on tap on older devices but on newer devices, it enables Google Assistant so I need to update my thread but don't really have time. :/
