Enable “OK Google” on 3rd party launchers on any device
One of the cool features of the Moto X is the always listening “Ok Google” feature which allows you to prompt a voice command in Google Now without even having to touch the device.
Now a mod for the Xposed Framework has been created over at XDA Developers to enable “OK Google” on all 3rd party launchers on KitKat and above, and also on a per app basis.
The requirement is that you need the Xposed Framework and also version 4.4+ of the Google Search app for it to work properly.
The developer has said it has been tested on the following stock devices/launchers with no issues, and mentions that pretty much every 3rd party launcher is supported:
- Xperia Stock Launcher
- HTC Sense 6 / Blinkfeed
- TouchWiz (S5 has this built in)
- LG (untested – G3 has this built in)
So if you want to implement “Ok Google” on your device with a 3rd party launcher then just download the .APK package from here, run the App, and enjoy the handsfree Google Now control.
