    So today I went to use the ok google, from my
    Home screen and nothing happened.

    I then went to check the settings inside the google app and the option to turn it ok has completely dissapeared?

    Has anybody else experienced this? And is there a fix

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Same exact thing happened to me today. The setting was there and working, and then all of a sudden gone. I think the Google app might have updated yesterday. Wondering if that has anything to do with it. Also, Samsung downloaded a new voice for English, which I suspect could be related. But I can't seem to figure it out.

    Must be a glitch with the new update or maybe they have taken it off all together :s

    Reading through the forums just realized S Voice supports Wake up command! Amazing. I was always jealous of Moto devices with this feature didn't even know it was supported on this device, very pleased.

    As for OK google I also do no have the option for Any Screen, Rogers variant.

    I switched from a Moto X and desperately miss the Active Listening / Always On feature. Does anyone know how to get this to work on the S6 (Edge)? Please help.

    Most likely it will be added back in another Google app update. It was there before they did a update earlier this week.

    After yelling at my phone like a crazy person for a good while, I finally checked the settings and it looks like the "Ok Google detection from any screen" option is now missing.

    S voice is HORRIBLE. It worked maybe twice for me, but it was so slow it was infuriating. Wake up command sometimes works with a massive delay. And the s voice text to speech voice is just creepy.

    And re-install? Really? Because I just uninstalled all the google updates (from application manager) and now it's back. I'm thinking I'll just leave it. You re-installed the update, and it still works?
