    Hi,

    I just got the phone yesterday and was reading tips on the phone and came across one I though was very cool, the ability to use "Ok Google" on any screen and even when the screen is off in the Language and Input>Voice Search>Ok Google Detection and I turned it On tested it and was working then last night it just stopped working, I didn't do anything out of the ordinary. Now when I go back to turn it on the option is grayed out and says my current language doesn't support the feature. I tried changing my language to other English versions but none of it helped. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Thank you for pointing out those settings. I had to redo my speech to get it to finally work. I didn't know we had this with the Note. It was automatic with the Droid Maxx.

    I had something smmilar, with the Google search listen options disabled. I had to re-enable S-Voice back and forth, and they came back. But since then, even with Google set ri listen everywhere, it only works on the Google Now screen.

    Also, I now see a very long (5+second) delay on bringing up Settings under Google Now.

    BTW, is "OK, Google" working for you on the Google Now screen?

    that worked it was because i had disabled S Voice(pretty stupid that one would affect the other) after re-enabling it it kinda frooze my phone had to reboot and when it turned back on it was working

    ... only works on the Google Now screen.

    Resetting "Audio History" helped in getting OK Google work outside Now.

    Still was getting 5+ seconds wait to get Settings under Google Now (blank black screen in the wait).

    What really helped (fully resolved) was going to Application Manager, "Turn Off" Google Search, "Turn Off" S-Voice, "Turn On" Google Voice. Now "OK Google" and Google Now are fully reliable and quickly responsive.

    Not 100% sure I needed all that rest, but these steps finally have things working without the laggy response and slow Settings. Hope it helps someone else seeing same issues.
