Default Touchless Control and Tasker

Sup guys. I was wondering if anybody thinks there's a way (w/out root) to activate touch less controls by holding volume down or some thing like that. Maybe using tasker.,or any other app. Some times I'd rather press a button than say OK Google now. Kinda embarrassing sometimes lol

You could do a shake profile to launch voice search.

I tried to do it, but I have some limitations since I'm not rooted and I'm not an expert on tasker... I got it working with a shaking gesture to launch voice search, but I couldn't make it to happen with the screen off...
If you find a way, please let me know (y)

There's an icon you can press once. Google search.

That's how I have to do it on my N5.

I know what you mean about embarrassing ....tho, to me it goes for all of it. I don't talk to my phone period around strangers. Lol
