How to remove Google Assistant & get back Google Now on Tap



Google just recently announced the official rollout of Google Assistant for pretty much all the Android smartphones running 6.0 Marshmallow or above. Most of the users have already received it, and it looks like it is working just fine without any issues. It is finally great to see the Assistant making its way to the other smartphones and is no more limited to just Google’s Pixel devices. If you haven’t received the update yet, then be sure to stick around as the rollout has begun and it is slowly making its way to other devices.

No doubt the Google Assistant is a great feature to have on your smartphone since it offers new ways to interact with your device and it can be a lot of fun. However, on the other hand, most users want the Now on tap back. Yes, although the Google Assistant is really good at what it does, most people are still trying to find out ways to get back the Google Now on Tap back. The reason for the same is that most people just don’t want to get habituated to a new way of interaction or other just don’t want the hassle of speaking or typing to it.

If you are one of those people and if you are wondering how to get the Now on Tap back on your device, then yes, there is a way to do it, and you are in the right place since we will be showing exactly how to do it. Be sure to follow the steps given below.

  1. The very step is to trigger Google Assistant. As you already know, you can simply do this by tapping and holding on to the home button.
  2. Doing that will trigger Google Assistant and after that simply tap on to the three dots on the top to expand the menu.
  3. Now scroll down through the options and look out for Assistant language. Tap to enter this option.
  4. This will now redirect to the system language selection menu, from where you can change the system language.
  5. Once you here, just swap the English US language to some other English locale.
  6. You can use any English language like Singapore, India, etc. Or else if you are fine using some other language other than English then you are free to do that as well.
  7. Just make sure that it is not English US/ British or German.
  8. Once that is done, you are good to go.

Now when you press and hold the home button, you should no longer see the Google Assistant and you should see the Google Now on tap, back in all its glory. With that said, if you have any queries, then be sure to let us know by writing down in the comment section and also be sure to stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more tutorial like this.
