    I have my setting checked to work all the time, but it never works unless the Google app is open. It works fine on my Samsung Tab 4.

    If I retrain the voice it will work for a minute but then it reverts back to only working when the Google app is open.

    I had to disable S voice before it would work when the lock screen was off or on any other page besides the home screen.

    I was having several issues with G. voice. Everything mentioned here plus other things like text messages were a disaster. After an update tho, everything was fixed. It's been working beautifully now. Just a side note- my Svoice isn't disabled...no problems.

    If you use the Google now launcher, "Ok Google" will work much more reliably from outside the Google app.

    You can have it work when the screen is off too.

    Hi ... Which update are you referring to?

    I noticed the same thing he did, but honestly could not say what was updated, though I think it was the Google app. All I know is, I used to have to disable SVoice to get Ok Google to work at all, and then it wouldn't work from everywhere.

    Then one day, after a Google update, I decided to re-enable SVoice. I wanted a press-and-hold of the home button to go to Google Search, so the first time I pressed and held after that update, the Note 4 said I had to download some additional language software. Then I had to train an app that looked like SVoice to recognize "Ok, Google," and everything has worked perfectly ever since.

    I can't figure out why, but twice last night it triggered watching YouTube. Lol. I didn't hear anything that sounded remotely close to "OK Google" at the time it triggered.

    Will not work for me with the screen locked, maybe because I use Nova Launcher. Works just fine with screen unlocked, though.

    Same experience here, but that doesn't disquiet me none. The only time I use any Voice Control is when using the Camera.

    It worked for me a few times then stopped and haven't worked ever since. Finally I've just disabled it since I don't have much use for it anyway (it doesn't have many cards in my country).

    Mine works on all screens and when the phone is locked as well. I did have to turn off S voice in order for it to work when the screen is off though. I'm stock on Sprint 5.0.1

    I had the same problem after I updated to Lollipop. Nothing I tried fixed the problem and I tried ALL the suggestions. So I just downloaded Google Now launcher and made it my default launcher and everything is just fine again before Lollipop.
