    It doesn't work when you open the Google Now app?

    That only works if you're using the Google Now Launcher.

    Yep, the hot word detection only works when you're on the Google Now screen.

    Hi,

    Are you saying that 'OK Google' hotword works on HTC One M8?

    I mean like it works on Moto X or Nexus 5? I mean even if the screen is off? Or does it work only when in Google Now Launcher...

    What i have understood from the various forums is that the OK Google feature does NOT work on HTC One M8.

    OK Google does work when Google Now is already open. But to have it work even when it's closed you need the Google Now Launcher.

    The Google now hotwork detection on home screen is strictly a nexus/Google phone/Google Play Edition feature. Or you can download the Google Launcher.

    Nova Launcher has an "ok google" option in settings. When enabled, the "ok google" hotword will launch a google voice search when the phone is unlocked and on any home screen.

    I am also in the UK and have the Google Now page set to open with a swipe up from the Home button on any screen and once it is open OK Google works perfectly for me. My M8 is an unbranded HTC_001 cid version running fully stock Rom and i haven't rooted it or unlocked the bootloader.

    You could also dl Open Mic, custom phrase options as well, works well... My hot phrase is "computer" right now but I may find a different less common word...

    Go to Google Now then settings look in search and now cards the voice option the go to "ok Google" detection open and there you have the options to change settings and use from any screen and/or only from google now, even you can program to be used from screen lock. Good luck!
