    So I have been looking around Google first before posting not finding any good solutions because you can disable Google now but it does not turn Google off. So the question is what other method can you use to disable Google now.

    Yes that did not help. It still pops up asking me to activate Google now when I hold menu.

    Re: How to disable Google Voice on android

    On the phone, go to settings > apps > and find Google Voice. Then select the app and disable it

    another suggestion:

    (to remove integration, go to google.com/voice log into your account (if you aren't logged in automatically), and go to setting, and look in the phone tab

    Not sure either will be helpful.
    If you are talking to someone pretending to be me aka DNC, you're about to be scammed.
    Do not come to this forum complaining that you were scammed; when buying, selling, trading files is against forum rules.

    Well I've already tried the one with going to Google voice and disable it from there but it still popus up whenever you dubbelclick on the home button and that's the annoying part.

    Anyhow, I'll try the second thing you've suggested on the hope that that is going to work, would be nice If I had such possibility to disable it because it's annoying as hell.

    Check this above link thread. It may be helpful.

    One section of the first thread mentions the following, make sure you check it out. :0)

    Does anyone know how to remove Google Voice from the cell phone and return to Verizon voicemaii?
    Home screen -> Menu -> Settings -> Call -> Voicemail Service. Select the dropdown button and choose My Carrier.

    I went into Google Voice, settings which advised me to call *73 on my phone. I did that - it connected, then automatically disconnected and removed Goggle Voice.
    - - - Updated - - -

    If the first portion doesn't work, try the following thread.

    Re: How to disable Google Voice on android

    Dialing the number does not work because it says that the number is not in service so it's pretty obvious that that won't work for me not at all.

    Both threads didn't help at all because it will just go back to the same option and that is by deactivating Google voice and I've tried that but it still opens when I press and hold the home button so that doesn't help.

    There must be a solution, but none of your solution appeared to help and that's strange and frustrating as hell..

    Thanks anyway .

    It's simple, replace your launcher with Nova launcher, open google settings, go to voice, and disable voice recognition. It won't bother you anymore. Also avoid long pressing of home button on Nexus devices. If you can root it, then you can delete the search app altogether though if you want to use it that's not recommended.

    Re: How to disable Google Voice on android

    Well you phone has to have an inbuilt gesture recognition, and yours is set to recognize long press of home button as activation of google now as I understand. Could you tell us what the device is? Brand, Model?

    I will give an example with mine, I am using an HTC Desire 500 Dual Sim, and I too have this option, the difference is when slide the home button up, google now gets activated (my home button is not a physical one like on Samsung for example) so when I go to Settings > Display, Gestures and Buttons > Buttons, I have the option to choose what the Home button does.

    So look for something similar.

    Every phone that doesn't have a physical home button has this feature thanks to the "nexus" lines. Only way to disable that is either ROOT your phone and use a custom rom like Cyanogenmod and change the button settings, or use Xposed's Gravity Box and change the navbar settings, or disable the Google Voice and Search in the Settings. (go to all apps, select these apps and click "Disable" you can re-enable them another time).

    This is an option, but what you say is not entirely right.
    Here is an image where i have slided the home button and I can choose "Nothing" as an option which practically disables it:

    You have a custom launcher.

    True, but even without it I can still do it, I can upload a screenshot of proof, but I don't intend to uninstall/disable it, unless you insist.

    Seems there are still suggestions here in the thread.
    Hope it all gets sorted out for you bro.
