Default [how to] enable ok google in any language! (from italy!)

Hi all,

I'm italian and i'm pretty new on the forum but I have some experience of the world from the Android " behind the scenes" ( developer )

I wanted to let everyone know that I found a way to ENABLE the fateful , fantastic , mega, super, turbo hotword " OK GOOGLE " , which activates google now , IN ANY LANGUAGES ! (ITALIAN, SPANISH, FRENCH, GERMAN, JAPANESE) and not only in English!!
among others, believe to be THE FIRST IN THE WORLD ! ( please say me not! ) since it was coming out this fantastic feature that I had to do it ....
look at the small picture below )))

english


italian


german


french


spanish


japanese




I've created a guide to do it to the site

how to enable hotword " Ok Google" in italian french german spanish and japanese on android devices

Link to guide

or

the procedure is fairly tested and shows how to enable all the other languages ​​supported by google now ( German - german , spanish -spanish , french - french, japanese - Japanese , Italian - english ), but for now you can just having the phone rootato
I hope it can help someone who can not wait any longer as I do !

i'm pleased!
I have update my guide today, if you don't want to copy the folder you can create a simple symbolic link to folder "en-US" in your language (tested with succesfull)...

Cheers!

Ciao

"OK Google" does work in my Phone, but hot word "OK Google" can not be found in search bar, how to fix this?
I am using GEL.
Thank you in advance.
Non-native, trying to be understood.

Thank you so much!!! I can't believe the Spanish scene has not done this yet or copied it! I couldn't find this anywhere.

I use to be able to use an experimental launcher in the past that allowed me to say "OK Google", and then speak Spanish and be understood, but right now, I can't do it anymore without having to manually push the microphone icon first . I though maybe Google updated the search app, and removed that feature on purpose for testing...


PS: I read people created flashable ZIP files to be able to say "OK Jarvis" instead of "OK Google". Do you know something about it?



Again, I can't believe this isn't so known around other language speakers, or even that "OK Jarvis" mod.





EDIT: Hello, my tree looks like this: cd /system/usr/srec/config and the file inside is called en.us. So I had to modify the commands and do the same with a "es.es" folder for Spanish, but it doesn't seem to work. (cp -r en.us es.es ). It creates the es.es folder, and I can set permissions fine, but it doesn't seem to work in the launcher.

I have a Moto G (x1032 GSM International), and I also tried restoring to a new stock rom, and also a modded ROM, both on KitKat 4.4.2

Any help?
