    Since updating to kitkat my Google now hot word is broken. The mic is hollow to indicate this and it's driving me nuts. Things I've already done:

    Uninstall updates to app, reinstall updates and set up again

    Delete and re-download language pack (us English)

    Googling led me to accessibility but I see nothing of interest here

    Toggle relevant settings in Google now

    Change launchers

    Well, I'm thoroughly frustrated :/

    Also to clarify, this is not the touchless control, which still works fine, but the Google now hot word setting

    Broke mine as well. Like you, i can initiate a search with touchless control, but once there, I can no longer do voice searches in google search. I have to go all the back to "Ok Google Now."

    Cleared cache and data then rebooted. Didn't fix.

    Could be. If it was on purpose, that is annoying. I liked the "conversational" contextual searches.

    Conversational search does not work with touchless controls? I can say who Obama and then ask who is he married to? And ask bunch of other questions without mentioning his name again ..is there more to it than that with google now hotword?

    After playing with it some more, the issue is that voice search in Google Now no longer works. I can't open Google Now and say "Google" to initiate a search like I could before. Now it appears that I have to initiate all voice interaction with Touchless Controls ("Ok Google Now"). I can tap on the mic icon to initiate listening in Google Now, but the "Hotword Detection" setting in Google Now doesn't work.

    Not sure if that was by design or is in fact a bug.

    Were you part of the soak test? If so, how did you manage to get on the list of testers?

    Thank you.

    First of all, the download link and instructions are everywhere if you want to side load it

    Second, one becomes a soak tester by signing up on the Motorola feedback network and registering your device
