Default [q] anyone got OK Google to work on s3mini

I was playing with Google now and like it a lot but can't get it to work without hitting the mic button (hotword ok google). Does anyone use it and does it work like on nexsus 5 without the extra app?

I'm set to English (US), functions are on..., did restart, updated all the apps needed...

The for any clue.

The funny thing is - your guide sucks. Removing velvet.apk removes Google launcher and you have to manually open Google now-Google search to use it and OK Google function. + learn proper English or use auto correction. I don't speak English to, but I do my best to be understood.

His guide didnt work for me the first time either but I kept trying, even with different launchers I think the trick for me was rebooting before installing Google search and then again after. Now it works. My friend also did this, it worked for him as well. I'm not saying this WILL work for you but its worth a try good luck.
