Would it be possible? Including the voice wake functionality "Okay, Google Now" instead of "Hi Galaxy"?

How many would be interested in something like this?

Should not be too hard to do, what do you think?

Probably will need root to achieve it

----

SOLVED: using a very simple tasker profile/action (see here)

UPDATE: Install this tiny free app from the Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....deathtosvoice (created using Tasker App Factory)

For some reason, I can now double tap home button and I get the option for S-voice or Google voice. I think I cleared the defaults in app settings.

Interesting but without the option to activate gvoice with screen off its not a huge benefit. I tested open mic+ but it lacks admin rights to bypass the lockscreen etc.

The free version? I've tried that but I don't see a menu after double clicking home.

You mean root permissions?

Sorry, I was wrong. I thought S-Voice is able to bypass a pin lockscreen but it isn't. It is only admin (not root) to allow the screen off command.

The problem of open mic+ is, that it is buggy. It seems to freeze after a short time. Sometimes Google Now freezes as well so I think it is because of Open Mic+ but I didn't tested it enough to verify it. S-Voice seems to be more stable, but is not present if you are in other apps like Maps.

But both systems are too weak in rights. e.g. I'm not able to stop apps (ok root would be needed), not able to say my lockscreen pin, stop a phone call, etc.

Tasker
I just had an idea: it should be possible to create a very simple tasker action, which would be triggered by opening s-voice. It would exit s-voice and switch immediatelly to Google Voice Search. This should work even without rooting.

If this would work, all the convenient ways to start S-Voice would become actually useful to start Google Voice search, including voice-wake, home-double-click, headset-long-press.

I will try this as soon as I get my N3
