    Just wanted to hear what you wish Google's "Okay Google Now" could do:

    My number one thing is
    - Okay Google Now... What Time Is It? > Im baffled that this does not work..

    That works on mine. it displayed the time and said, "the time is 4:10 PM".



    My biggest wish list items are "which of my friends have birthdays next week?", "how long until my wife is home?" (put obvious limitations on this one, opt in for sharing with specific circles, etc), "how many days until christmas?" etc. Basically another level of neural networking integration across many (or all) platforms.

    That and hardware controls would be cool. "Okay google now, play zombie by the cranberries" could easily be followed by, "okay google now, turn the volume up to 80%". Right now 2nd command does nothing. And, "okay google now, project remaining battery life time", on top of the obvious, "okay google now, what's my current battery %?", blah, blah.

    First off, Waterloo? Sweet, I'm in Waverly, IA, just a few miles north of ya.
    I've tried that a few times as well and like the OP, it never did that. However after seeing your post, I tried it again and it worked. I wonder if it is because of the lauguage pack I downloaded today.

    Go into Google Now, scroll to the bottom, go into Settings | Voice | Offline speech recognition. There was an update for me today that I downloaded. (By default it is set to auto update over WiFi but I never use WiFi.)

    Or it could have been that Google Search update the other day.

    I want Google now to be passive with its command prompt when in driving mode instead of popping up a black screen with orange dot. So that it can work better with navigation software. Also, speak back confirmation of commands. Put more ai into Google now

    Did you update the language pack? You can do that now.

    After it answers the first question, just say "OK Google" and ask the second one.

    Turn on and off settings arch as blue tooth and Wi-Fi.

    Unlock my phone......that is what I wish it would do. It's voice recognition so why I have to put in my pin or pattern to get the response does not make sense.

    But then it would defeat the purpose of having any security at all.

    I think that last part is covered by the trusted devices thing as well, to an extent.

    The manual I got with the phone says if you say call my droid when you can't find your phone in the room it's supposed to call the phone or something.

    When I do this it just does a Google search for call my droid.

    Wish it did that. Lol.

    What you are hoping for is a combination of google and Siri. Would be perfect, but doesn't exist. :-(

    If you stored yourself as a contact using your mobile number of your phone,, it probably would.

    Of course you would have to say "ok Google now call your name" not just call my droid

    it would just go to your VM now that I think about it .lol still sleepy

    Why can't we speak a simple password to unlock the phone after saying "OK Google Now"? (By the way, I trained it to respond to "OK Moto". It works great and I don't have to keep promoting Google.) The danger, of course, is that speaking a password aloud lessens the security. However, they could easily add a command to change the spoken password daily or whenever you want. If you forget your password, it falls back to manually entering your pin, pattern, or password.

    I'm surprised that they haven't done this yet. Touchless control is great, but very much limited by the need to pick up the phone to unlock it.

    Lol. Yea. Voicemail. Haha.

    The manual says call my droid. I was assuming it was just an alarm sound or something that would sound when you say it.

    Then someone using a similar cadence as you could unlock it.

    Have you had problems with it activating inadvertently? Not sure if it was you but someone posted that with that passphrase, it tended to accidentally activate more often then with the normal one.

    How'd you pull that off ? I tried training it to say other things but it would only accept "ok google now"

    Well, I accidentally discovered that "OK Google" (without the "Now") worked, so I thought I'd try to train it to recognize "OK Moto". I didn't do anything special, just went through the three (?) training cycles. It works every time. Oddly, my wife and a colleague can also get it to react to "OK Moto".

    I seem to recall it activating once when I didn't want it to. But that's it. Otherwise, it works great.

    Not sure if it's because im on sprint or because of the recent moto patch but I definitely can't do "ok google" without the "now" let alone train it to listen to "ok moto."

    I'm on Sprint and was able to train it to respond to just "OK Google". The training took a few tries though.
