Well by now the staged rollout should be completed...this may sound dumb but ....did you activate it? It doesnt happen by itself and needs to be enabled within the Google app itself

The two things you might check are that youre running at least Android version 4.4.2 (unfortunately this doesn't work on older versions of Android)....and second that you've updated your Googke search to version 3.5.14.

You shouldn't have any problems on rooted devices. I'm running a rooted stock rom with S-off and it works just fine.

This problem is killing me! I have a Nexus 7, 10 and a M8. OK Google anywhere is working on the 10, used to work on the 7 then inexplicably stopped and has never worked on the M8. I've tried everything, reflashed the ROM(s) cleared Google search, uninstalled it. Same with play services. It's really frustrating!

Everything's up to date. Once the trainer appeared when I enabled audio history but then the app crashed and it's never happened again. Totally stumped!
