Google Now voice activation
The voice activation does not work in Google Now on my tablet. I have the option in the settings checked for it to be active. I can activate voice commands by clicking the microphone but nothing happens when I say "OK Google" when in Google Now. This works fine on my Galaxy S4 phone. Also noted is that there is no text in the search box that says Say OK Google as it does on my phone. Anyone have any idea why this wouldn't be working properly?

Probably it hasn't been updated yet. The Google Search/Google Now app was, to the best of my knowledge, being slowly updated to all devices so that you could say "OK Google" even after you made a search. If it's not updated, you should only see the "OK Google" prompt in the main screen, but once it goes into search results, you're stuck with the microphone.

Re: Google Now voice activationYes,
Strange thing is that it started working tonight after I rebooted for another reason. I say strange since I have rebooted many times and yet it has only started to work tonight. I'll see if it sticks. Thanks for the replies.
