Default [Q] 'ok google' from anywhere

hi all hope you are loving the new g3 as much as i am

google have released the ok google phrase from anywhere (any app/any screen) as long as the phone is on (only moto x can do it off)

i have tried to set this up on my g3 but without success

i updated google play services to 3.5 and my google search app is is on version 3.5.15 (this feature comes on 3.5.14+)


but cannot get it working

anyone who has? anyone know how?

i am in the uk

i have changed my voice search to english-us from english-uk but no joy

1) it only works for English US at the moment

2) its on a slow roll out, having the correct up-to-date apps is not good enough, Google have to have selected you to have the feature.

If I didn't get it wrong, LGs own search function is killing that feature in G3, so "Ok Google" works just in case Google search is active in foreground.

"of the launcher" is not what the OP was asking. The new Google update allows for "OK GOOGLE" to be used from any app, anywhere on the device.
