Default Google Now launcher --press home, then say "Ok Google".

Hey guys,
I really wanted the "Ok Google" from home like I have on my Nexus. After doing this, you can press the home button to wake the device up and then simply say "ok google, remind me to talk to my boss when I get to work". It takes specific versions of the apps to make this work and I located a combination that wiill do the job.

You will need:
  • Google Play Store installed
  • Google Search installed from Play Store.
  • A copy of ADB

Installation
  1. Un-tar.gz this file with whatever program you use for file compression, to a folder called "GoogleLauncher"
  2. Navigate to the "GoogleLauncher" folder,
  3. Using your copy of ADB, type "adb remount", then "adb push *.apk /system/app"
  4. Go to Settings>System>Accessibility>Quick Boot and disable Quick Boot
  5. Reboot your watch.

Conclusion
This worked for me. If you're having problems or you'd like this turned into an app you can download and press a button to perform the tasks above, let me know.
Flash with Odin on Windows, Linux and Mac. Use JOdin3, Available in a web browser or offline

Don't quote the OP in its entirety. Its a waste of space. It can also be confusing if the directions change.

It likely would.

On my S2, Google Now is both part of the Google Launcher and Google Search. For those of us running Loki's EnSec + Operative, does the Google Launcher below replace SmartLauncher as the home action? In other words, are we giving up SmartLauncher / WP8 Launcher / OUI2.0 to get Google Now?

What about making it a flashable zip? Operative includes TWRP, so we should be able to flash system APKs.

Thanks!

Jaskru, I was wondering the same thing. I did what you suggest above back in February, and the OK Google launcher has been an option ever since. Works better than typing, for most stuff.

I am otherwise on unrooted stock, though I do not suggest others use their TrueSmarts unpatched at all.

This doesnt work with just installing the APK. you get a toast stating that there is a problem.

that's not it. something is missing from the system apps. I tried just installing them, it didn't work.
