Hey guys.
Just discovered that if I press and hold the button on my headphones Google voice pops up.
But when I do that with the screen locked it does this: (attached picture) and it doesn't do anything more, it just stays there saying initializing.
Does this happens to you too? Or does it do anything more?

Which Android version? Do you use a custom lock screen, what lockscreen security do you use...?

I am on stock 4.4.4, with the original lockscreen with the screen lock being "slide"(it's the original one).

I suspect it's designed to preventer pocket dialling, which is one of the reasons lock screens exist.
