    Does it take you from AOD screen too home screen, or just AOD screen to lock screen?
    It goes from AOD >> unlock >> Google Assistant directly....all handsfree

    On Oreo Beta, OK Google unlocks the phone from AOD. It opens voice assistant but if you cancel it or back out the phone is unlocked to home screen.

    Yeah I know, right? I'd seen your post before work and when I got home automatically sent a reply.
    Hard core OK Google user here and that's one of the best things for me about the Beta.

    Oh ... wait ... I may have misunderstood before.

    So, with Oreo Beta, when you're on the AOD screen, you can say "OK Google" and the voice assistant comes up? If I understood that correctly, then that's great! That means you can shout OK Google from across the kitchen while the screen is off and set a timer, set an alarm, or whatever! . I think that was the whole point ... ?

    That was my whole complaint before ... not being able to access OK Google voice assistant when the screen is off. But it sounds like you can now on Oreo Beta ... ?
