Does anyone know a cheat, fix or app that allows Google search to be permanently active and listening for the "OK Google" command, regardless of whatever else is open or foremost on screen? "OK Google" is a phenomenon, but it's a shame that it only works after bringing Google Search or Google Now to the fore; it would be wonderful if it could be permanently listening out for the "OK Google" audio command.
Many thanks. I've installed GEL launcher (KK Launcher), and Google Search is indeed always present. However, "OK Google" still only works after first pressing the microphone iconů? I'm looking for a solution whereby if the phone is on, then "OK Google" responds, without having to press anything first.
(I'm on a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, running 4.2.2, rooted but on factory ROM.)
you might have to toggle it, im pretty sure that it has it the option in settings, try this one instead http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...l-app-t2529594 its the real deal pulled from the nexus 5 , i imagine that it always listening will pull some ram away so note that.
OK, first up my grateful thanks, the basic Google Now launcher you recommended does the trick and I have permanently-on "Go Google". BINGO!
However... ! That launcher is of course extremely basic; only one home page and almost no options. So here's where I get greedy! Is there a way of maintaining the permanently-on Go Google feature of Google Now Launcher, but with the better options and functionality of GEL Launcher?
im sure there is that sort of thing that someone has made already, as for the one homepage there should be more than one? to the left is the google now posts and might have to drag apps to the right to make one. the menu is very disapointing i feel like its a step down, i always got to the settings from there but you only go to the launchers settings.
