Tell us which Google Now features you want to see

Last week, we took a look at the results of a poll that showed that almost a quarter of you hate Google Now. That got us thinking, why do so few people use the service? Today, we ask for your input on what you would like to see added to Google Now – something that would make you want to use it in the future.

Google is adding new features to Google Now all the time. Not too long ago, they added the ability to view flight information and track deliveries. At the moment, many of these features are only available in the US, which is no doubt a big cause of woe for many of our readers, so perhaps greater global support is something you'd like to see?

Whatever it is – maybe more specific voice commands or some design changes – leave us a comment below, and we'll collect the most popular ideas and put them into a poll later in the week so you can vote for your favorite.

  • Think about that how much time you spend reading on your smartphone every day. Even if you are not a New YorkTimes subscriber or bookworm, you probably scanning and scrolling through text always, and probably doing it throughout multiple apps. here on

    Option to customize it.

  • good

  • For me the general direction of Google Now is good, but proper app interaction is needed along with intuitive voice control. I'd like to control all apps via voice especially my music player though of course app developers would need to include the option.

  • I would like to be able to change the size of the icons and the rows and columns on the grid.

  • Too much background noise. I say one thing it understands something else. I also don't want everyone to know what my next move is.

  • I wish Google made the ios a more natural feel in sharing money with app/contact like in a texting,calling, or a everyday experience if you know what to mean

  • What i really want is controlling the whole phone with voice.
    "OK google, what is the mystery behind Bermuda triangle? "
    " Open the first link"
    "Read it to me"
    "Launch Kik"
    "Text James 'It is true, its real,' "

  • I would love to see all this stuff

  • 1. Fix the bugs. Doesn't work well when you have a secure lock even using trusted voice or personal results. Need to use Google now when driving so I'm not looking at my phone but I'm always having errors and it's always asking for my pattern/imprint. Handing off to cellular more aggressively would help too. 80% of the time I want to use Google now is when I'm leaving a place and transitioning from one event or place to another, and it always screws up since I walk away from WiFi.

    2. Read back messages and email. Read back text that you are about to send.

    3. Custom hotword. Annoying that if you say OK Google and you have a phone, tablet, and watch (i dont) 3 things go off. Also if someone else has a phone it will set off their phone or devices.

    Easier editing of some defaults. Google Now is convinced I work at Costco instead of being self employed.
