I flashed the full 4.4.2 factory image from google. Still shows "Ok google" on my search bar and worked just fine.

It goes away after like 10-15 tries... but that time google knows that you have learned the process.

or are you saying when you say "okay google" it doesn't detect at all ?

Default Found the culprit. Problem now solved.

Guys, I know what happened - it was Pushbullet that caused my problem.

Apparently their "Notification Mirroring" feature (which is quite awesome) under Accessibility settings somehow gimped Google Search's hotword detection. Here's a link to someone else's thread where this problem had already been discovered last month(!).

I only found out after Pushbullet themselves acknowledged the issue in their app update description on Google Play.

I'll update the OP.

I had the same issue going from 4.4 to 4.4.2. The fix for me was the main language setting. All my inputs were set under English (U.S.), i.e., keyboard, voice but my main language setting was English (U.K.). Don't how how it happened but I switched it back and I was good

This didn't work either and that seems to have reset my entire launcher/home screen.... Awesome

The "OK Google" hotword detection was working fine (in both the GEL and the Google Search app if I accessed it via the app icon) before I updated, but now the ability seems to be lost no matter what I do.

I've double-checked the following -
  1. My system default language is English (United States).
  2. In my Voice Search settings:
    a) my language is also English (United States).
    b) Hotword detection option is checked.
    c) In my Offline speech recognition > Download Languages settings, I've English (United States) pre-installed (no different from in 4.4).
  3. In short, I simply haven't changed any settings that might have caused this problem.

Anyone having this same issue, or know how to fix it?


UPDATE:
I figured out what happened - it was Pushbullet that caused my problem, not 4.4.2.

Anyway thanks for all the suggestions and comments.
You were spot on with that buddy! The same thing happened after I allowed notification mirroring with AirDroid. Disabled that in the accessibility settings and Google hot words works again. Thanks a lot
