    Default Google Now search starts listening on wired headset connection?

    Google now starts and search begins upon connection of a wired headset (Jays Headphones with no mic - just a standard music headphones) on my Moto G...

    Anyone else having the same issue?

    Any way to disable it?

    I had this issue with my Moto G and fixed it with this app:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...headsetblocker

    However one big caveat the developer has said the app is not compatible with ICS+. That said you can get the apk from code.google (sorry if links are not allowed), it will install fine and I haven't had any issues with it. Your mileage may very, I wish I had a better solution but haven't found any others that work. It's a really annoying issue.
