I suggest you ...

Add swipe to the left for Google Now (Kit kat feature)

In Kit kat, the user is able to swipe to the far left to bring up Google Now. It would be great if this new feature could be added to nova.

        Please add this feature, please also make it like the google now launcher so the status bar is transparent with tinting when in the google now screen.

        Please add this feature, if you can't let us know why. You guys have the best launcher around

        Would also love swipe left for google now. Very happy with everything else in nova prime

        I'd like this as well. Or at least the option to have left swipe open up the Google Now App or some other app (Blinkfeed, Flipboard, etc.). Action Launcher 3 has it so it isn't impossible.

        Still waiting for this. This feature is the only reason I keep the Google Now launcher loaded. C'mon guys... this would take Nova a notch above everything else.

        Just adding this comment to let you guys know we still want it badly. Would make nova the best again.

        KK Launcher (KK App Team) in the Play Store is able to swipe to Google Now the only limitation is you can't swipe back, you have to use the back arrow key to return to Home.

        I like nova launcher from very long time, swipe to google now is missing in nova launcher. But there is one more launcher called epic launcher and it has same feature like swipe left to launch google now.

        Great idea! It is the only thing stopping me from setting nova as the default launcher.

        Gestures and Buttons in Nova Launcher Prime can solve your problem. You can set up a gesture to bring up Google Now. It makes easier.

        I agree with those who want the "swipe to Google Now" feature on Nova. I love Nova, and so far that's the only feature I'm missing from it. Adding the Google Now widget just doesn't give me the same experience as the native Google Now page.
