    I just started using the Nova Launcher instead of Touchwiz. The "ok google" functionality of the google search-bar now does not work.

    I can tap the microphone and it works but I kind of liked the "ok google" abilities. Anyone know how I can get this back?

    Thanks a ton for any help!

    I believe only Touchwiz launcher has this supported on our phones.

    On the flip side.... Nova launcher makes my s5 so much smoother:-) small price to pay IMHO

    Could just install Google Now Launcher. Much more intuitive than TW, gives you access to "OK Google" and IMO, looks better.

    I use Open Mic+ with Nova Launcher. Works on every screen and you can choose your own start word. The only caveat is you have to be careful. It wants to launch when I listen to music, ect, so I have to disable it for certain apps. Also I understand Google is working on a similar app...
