Google Now Appears to Be Sleeping this Morning

by Todd Haselton | January 16, 2013

Google Now appears to be sleeping in this morning. After reports from AndroidCentral seemed to suggest the service was offline, we tested it ourselves and found that it’s not working as usual. I usually test the service by asking the Jets score — you know, to remind myself of the terrible season they just had — and while I get the score, I don’t get the voice response. The cards appear to be working properly, it’s the search option that seems finicky. I guess that technically means it’s Google Search that’s down, right?

We’re guessing this is a small hiccup that will be fixed in a few hours at most, but who knows? Let us know if you’re having the same problem if you have an Android phone running version 4.1 or 4.2.
