Hangouts consolidates your chats and texts together (left), and will serve as your default SMS app (right). Google Now, now, now With the advent of Google Now, which has been around since Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, users have been able to begin a Web search by saying, "OK, Google." But KitKat brings a couple of changes to this service. First, if you turn on Google Now, you can access it by swiping left on your home screen, in addition to holding down the home button. Second, you don't have to manually launch Now or tap the microphone to start a voice search anymore. Search automatically begins once it hears the magic phrase. It's so automatic, it borders on overzealous. In fact, you don't even have to face the handset if you say, "OK, Google" remotely loud enough (or anything that rhymes, really, like "bouquet doodle"). As always, though, you can turn this function off in settings.
To use all of these new book lover ii iphone case features, KitKat also has an updated Google Keyboard, This keyboard is very similar to the version released on the Google Play Store, except the swiping line color has changed, you can glide over space to insert it between words, and some upgraded emoji are included, If you have Android 4.0 or above on your device, AndroidPolice has made the keyboard APK available for download so you can try it right now, Ready to get started?

Finally, open any app where you can type to test it out. The emoji have their own button in the bottom right-hand corner, but if you don't see it in some apps, try long-pressing Enter or Search. Please note that emoji will show as black and white versions only if you are not on Android 4.4.
