Default M8+Nova Launcher+OK Google= Complete happiness.

So Nova just got an update that supports OK Google and it works flawlessly. It was the one item I was jealous of from the Moto phones.

Just curious, does "OK Google" wake Nova Launcher even screen off?

No - that's a hardware issue though. There's another thread complaining about how our phone doesn't have that capability while the OnePlus One does.

I wonder if that can be solved with a "Mic always on" type script.

When it first came out, I thought the MOTO X was the only one that could do it.

But my old RAZR MAXX (Not HD) would do the OK Google thing when I loaded CM11 on it. Shocked the hell out of me.

There is an Xposed Module that enables the OK google command for just about any third party launcher. Sense launcher, Apex, Nova, and just about every other launcher you can think of. Simple, install Xposed framework, enable, reboot. Install Ok google module, enable, reboot, done. It's cool that Nova natively supports it now though. I'm sure Apex will follow suit. That was the only feature that had me using the otherwise crappy GEL launcher.
