    Is there a setting that allows the Pixel the option to listen for "Ok Google " command through the mic of my bluetooth headset mic instead of cell phone mic. Please help, it would make my Pixel experience so much better.

    Welcome to Android Central! Open the Google app, go to Settings>Voice>Hands-free, and make sure "Allow Requests with Device Locked for Bluetooth Devices" is turned on.

    When I did this recently it drained my BT headset in about 1.5 hours. Normally I can use it for 5-6 hrs listening to audio or music or on a call.

    I'm not sure if there are any other options. In order to respond to any Ok Google command, the Bluetooth headset presumably has to stay awake constantly, which then drains the battery faster.

    I found that certain headsets just work without changing any settings when the call or send button is pressed on the headset itself, my Motorola HX550 works this way, when purchasing one, read the reviews, sometimes people say if the headset works with OK Google in the reviews.

    My Jawbone headset works with "OK Google." No changes to settings, it just works.

    Just get a headset that supports it and you won't need to turn on setting to drain the battery

    When in Google Now, I go to Settings -> Voice
    -> At the bottom, turn on "Bluetooth Headset"
    -> Under OK Google Detection -- Make sure it is always on
    -> Under Hands Free -- Turn on Bluetooth Devices

    After the updated Google Assistant was released, all of the above is incorrect. Here's how you activate voice control using a wired or wireless headset:
    1. Open Google Home
    2. Click on your account symbol (the circle with a person inside)
    3. Click on 'Settings' in the General Settings section
    4. Select 'Assistant' from the tab row
    5. Scroll down to find 'Assistant Devices' and click on your Phone
    6.Click on 'Other hands-free settings
    7. Select how you want Assistant to allow requests with device (your phone) locked

    You have a choice of Bluetooth or wired headsets.
    (It's amazing that Google managed to hide such a setting 7 levels deep down and away!!)
