    Default always listening not working

    I updated to kit Kat and this was the main feature I wanted but doesn't work
    I found this
    How to turn off ‘Okay Google’ always listening feature in the Google Experience Launcher | TalkAndroid.com

    The setting in my menu only turns it on or off in Google now but not home screen. It says there supposed to both turn on and off at same time.
    If u know anything I thank u In advance

    it seems you haven't read the link either because you need the google experience launcher.

    Only works on the GNL like mentioned above. You'd have to sideload that since it is exclusive to the Nexus 5

    Have you, or are you, using this? Does it replace Sense? I read the article below and on one hand it sounds like it might but on the other it sounds like it blends in so first hand knowledge would be helpful.

    i havent no.


    but i found this video: http://phandroid.com/2013/11/14/how-...oogle-command/ which shows how to go about side loading it and they use an htc one to do it.

    it will behave as any other launcher. so yes it replaces Sense in that you'll have to load that launcher instead of Sense and it will bring along its own little UI tweaks.

    Just to clear up any confusion... Yes, you need the "Google Experience Launcher" to have support for that feature. It can be side loaded onto the device but at the expense of looking Sense. Also, it's only listening from the home screen or Google Now.

    The launcher ships with the Nexus 5 and has since been integrated with Search indicating a possible wider rollout to the Play Store.

    I was just looking up what features came with kit Kat befor I updated an found Google's page
    http://www.android.com/versions/kit-kat-4-4/
    Which makes it seem that it should be part of 4.4
    The other link was just to show what should happen when u change the setting
