    Not sure what happened but I used to be able to say Ok Google from the lock screen and the screen would light up with a ring around the screen and then I could do stuff like Setting an Alarm without unlocking the screen.

    All of the sudden it's not happening.

    Anyone know why that would be. I did modify some stuff but doubt I could backtrack. Maybe there's a setting I'm missing or need to turn back on.

    Any ideas anyone? I loved that feature.

    I'm assuming you have all 3 options checked off. Works fine for me from lock screen

    Go to google search app - settings - voice - OK google detection and make sure trusted voice is on.

    Also note that this doesn't work from always on display screen, you need to press home button to wake up the device and then with trusted voice on it can listen to OK google hotword, unlock the device and give you the answer.

    I have a Galaxy Note 4 (T-mobile) running the latest firmware and it's on Android 6.0.1.

    When I say "Ok Google" to my phone locked screen, it'd wake up, but then I'd get stuck on the Lock Screen. I'd have to manually unlock it (I use the Swipe Pattern Lock). That beats the purpose of operating Google Assistant in a hands-free manner, especially when I'm driving.

    The "Trusted Voice" option is missing from my Google Assistant/Now settings. "Ok Google from any screen" is available and is turned on. I remember back then I used to have the "Trusted Voice" option, but maybe in the last few versions, it's been removed? I'm not sure.
