    Default Ok google voice activation problem

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for some help with the 'ok google' voice activation on my tab s. The mic in the google search box is just the outline version and not the solid version as it is on my s5 phone. As such, saying 'ok google' from my tab s home screen does not launch google now, as it does on my s 5 phone. This is despite having the 'ok google' box ticked in the voice section of the google now settings.
    So my questions are:
    1. Does anyone here with the tab s have this working properly?
    2. If it can/should work, how do I enable it?

    Thanks, your help is appreciated.
    Pete

    It works from my Home Screen. However, you may need to enable it in your launcher. I am using Nova Launcher and I have checked the box to enable it in the settings.

    Thanks for the reply. Did/does it work from the home screen without Nova launcher?

    Mine works from the home screen just fine. No custom launcher.

    Works just by speaking the words 'ok google' as opposed to pressing the mic icon?
