OK Google doesn't work
« on: November 09, 2013, 08:10:54 AM »
So yeah, the subject explains it all. No matter how many times I say "OK Google" or how I say it, nothing ever happens. I have all 3 English language packs installed and available offline (Australia, UK and US), I've tried with only one of each installed or 2 and missing one out etc, but still nothing happens. So if any of you guys have had the same problem or know the solution or something, let me know please.

Hi Simpey.

I solved the problem by installing ENGLISH US as the default language for the n5. I believe I did this through the phone settings and not Google Now.

I am sure you are aware that the home screen has to be on! ;-)

Gald you're on the way.

Here's a decent list of commands to date.

Feared it may be a bit of a gimmick at first but I used it in real life twice yesterday to "Set a reminder to leave the house in ten minutes" and "Set my alarm for this morning"

"OK GOOGLE" is not the only command that launches google now...

Try "Hey Google" or "Hey Jarvis" (In an American accent - lol)
