You may be familiar with Google’s ‘Google Search’ app, which has impressed many with its very accurate ‘Google Voice’ search feature. If you are, then you’ll be pleased to here about a cool new iOS tweak, that allows you to trade the default assistant Siri with something a little more Google-ey.
I should say from the off that this tweak does, of course, require a jailbreak, so if you’re never one to do such a thing to your beloved iDevice, then I suggest you go and read something else. If you’re still reading this, then I’ll get on with telling you how to get Google Voice to replace Siri. To start, you’ll need the BigBoss repository in your Cydia sources. Once you have it, find a tweak called NowNow, and download it. From this point on, you know the drill, set an action to trigger it in Activator, and hey presto, bye bye Siri, hello Google Voice.
If you fancy some more Google in your life, it should be mentioned that to make this tweak work, you’ll need to have the Google Search app installed on your device, which shouldn’t be a hindrance, considering that most people already have the app. Also did I mention that the tweak is free? I didn’t, so that’s even more reason to install it.
