Google Now Works while Screen OFF on Moto G

Well it seems it’s happening since the new update for Google Search which added OK Google at any screen to android phones, my phone is able to response to Ok Google commands while the screen is off. I’m running Kitkat 4.4.4 at the moment on my XT1033.

Make sure you have installed the latest version of Google Search on your phone and You’ve also enabled the Ok Google detection “from any scree and from lock screen” under voice search in your settings. how ever below is the instruction to get them enabled :

  1. Open “Settings” then go to “Language & input” then “Voice Search”.
  2. turn audio history on
  3. open “Ok Google” Detection and tick “From any screen” and “From lock screen” options.
