    Exclamation Voice dialing directly from the lock screen

    I just got my new HTC One M8 and I have an unusual question. I need a way to launch voice dialing (either the standard HTC one or through Google Now) directly from the lock screen. I'm open to suggestions such as custom launchers or some other method if necessary. I can't seem to get the standard swipe down gesture control to work consistently.

    You can always swipe up from the bottom of the lock screen to get to Google now, say OK Google and then say call whoever.

    Swiping from top downward is a direct link to voice dialing from the lock screen. This works even with a PIN.

    EDIT- That is, from a screen OFF, swiping top down will bring up voice dialing. If you are already at the lock screen, then no.

    Well he said he couldn't get that to work consistently, so I think that's why he's asking for other options.

    Although not sure if he's trying it from the lock screen like you said...

    You can swipe down from the dot view case being shut and voice dial. But they are like a unicorn to find. Drive from Washington to Ohio for our move found one in Montana and one in Ohio. Everywhere we stopped ( about 20 places were sold out )
