Question [Q] Svoice voice Wake up?

I've been trying to figure this out since I got the phone, I need some help. How do you wake up the phone while the screen is off using voice?
I turned "voice wake up" on in the svoice settings but it doesn't work. Some people say this was never a feature but apps like "S for switch voice" claim it's a working feature.

It would be awesome if anyone can help,
Thanks

Alastair: I understand that you require information how to wake up the device using S Voice. Is that correct?
Visitor: yes
Alastair: Thank you for confirming.
Alastair: May I know the model number of the device? You may find it in Applications>Settings>General>About Device. You can also find the model number beneath the Phone's battery. Generally model number starts with SGH,SPH,SCH,GT or SM.
Visitor: SM-g900v
Alastair: Thank you for the model number.
Alastair: I would like to inform you that you need to say "Hello Galaxy" to wake up the device.
Visitor: can i do this while the screen is off?
Alastair: Yes, the device will wake up when the screen is off."

After a long chat, and factory resetting, they recommended me to return it to Verizon. Still cant get it to work

Guess I will wait and see if this problem is addressed by Samsung, or if the Samsung live chat person has no idea what they are talking about.

I can't get S Voice to wake up at all - Ok Google works fine for Google Now but the default wake up command and my custom wake up command are doing nothing to wake up S Voice.
I'm glad I see no point to S Voice considering the robustness of Google Now.

I don't mean to bump this thread but I figured it out if anyone is interested.

Turn on Car mode then exit out (make sure you still have the steering wheel notification in the status bar). Now you can say "hi galaxy" whenever.

What makes this good is that you can download "S for switch voice" app on the play store. That opens Google Now instead of Svoice. Works just like a Moto X now

Cool, but you need to keep Car Mode enabled?

I thought would ask on this thread to keep the spam down.

Can this svoice wakeup thing be achieved now that we have root? I mean the function is already there with car mode, but maybe someone could strip down the car mode to have it only wake up with voice, and not mess with Bluetooth or restrict minimum volume.

I know this requires more work then I can imagine and is probably pretty low on anyone's priority list, but if anyone could tell me how to do it or link me to a fix, that would be awesome.
Thanks
