Default Simple trick to enable 'Ok Google' on any screen

I still can't believe how simple they made it. Just open the search app and do a text search for "Okay Google Everywhere." That's it. Go back to your Google Now voice settings and you should see the Ok Google section now has options for detection on any screen and the lock screen

Google Now supports "OK Google" detection from ANY screen in the latest update. To activate it, you have to ENABLE "Audio History" and then ENABLE "OK Google from any screen" in Voice settings.

- The update to Google Search added some really neat functionality... which has stopped working for no reason.

- For instance I could say "play music" and the Play Music app would launch and start playing music.

- Then I could say something like "play next song" or "stop music" and it would execute the command. But it seems they have removed that functionality for some odd reason on the Moto G because I get this audible error "controlling media is not supported on this device"
