Default Always Listening PROOF of Concept

Hey Nexus 5 owners,

Just saw this break my news feed:
https://plus.google.com/106978520009...ts/H4CiUhBRghi

Proof that we can have Always Listening on the nexus 5. Hopefully this gets some big attention because it's one of the most wanted Moto X features available!

Sorry if this is a double post, but I don't think so considering it's 6 hours old.

This is amazing because they can use that hack to use the low powered core for other features like tap on and music playing.

I'm surprised that this has not caused the Nexus 5 forum to XpLoDWilD. Guillaume does some excellent work.

I read somewhere that we can't have always listening because it needs trademark from nuance, both moto x and note 3 have it but nexus 5 doesn't.

The main reason we don't have an always listening feature is because of the complications and licensing at the hardware level. Google chose to use the low-core processor for a step counter, which I think is a lot less useful thank touchless control. Hopefully Guillame can prepare a version free of copyright infringement or trademarks/licensing and allow us N5 users to make full use of our S800!
