Google Now works great when I click on the homepage search bar that opens the Google Now screen but is one of you able to get Google Now to listen actively on the home screen to: OK Google, followed by a voice command? I am using the ViperOneM8 rom and Open Mic+ for Google Now does not seem to work

As a one step workaround I use Nova launcher and swipe up to start Google Now but like the active listening functionality.

Google's Home Launcher offers this. I use it.

Thank you for your suggestion, David but I like to keep Nova as my launcher instead of changing to the Google Home/Now Launcher.

It wasn't really a suggestion.. The Google Now Launcher is what does it.

There's currently no other way to get the always listening behavior on the homescreen.

Good news! Nova Launcher has been updated and now supports the "OK, Google" hot voice word on every launcher screen.

Almost every third party launcher now supports this. I'm using smart launcher and I have always listening on.
