Default Google now hotword not working.

I'm not a COMPLETE nub (although this may be something easy to fix, I'm just not sure how to, if at all.)

- Google Now version: 3.5.15
- Google Play Servces: 5.0.x

Cleared data for the Google search, not quite to google now launcher, although I'll try that now.

Restarted the device.

The Ok google hotword is still there, however, the extra settings are not there, almost like it's registering that I never updated it.


Could this be a custom ROM issue?

Is your language English (US)? For me the extra options were grayed out until I changed the language to English (US).

from what I've read, its a server side option that Google needs to activate on your account

i think that you were right in regards to the server-side switch.

It magically showed up yesterday when I stopped checking it every 2-3 mins at about 9:30p or so.

-shrug-

No rhyme or reason to the flag on the account I guess...?
