Default "Ok Google"

Thought I'd let everyone know about showing cool I saw on the Phandroid site. Some time ago google released an update to the Google Now app that allows the "Okay Google" hotword to activate the Google Now app from any other app including the lockscreen.

Well originally you had to wait for an update to the app which is being rolled out by account not area. However, again thanks to Phandroid.com for the tip but if you open the Google Now app and search for "Okay Google" then select Google Settings > Search & Now > Voice > “Ok Google” Detection and check “From any screen” to enable Hotword Detection from*any*app (even the lockscreen) you can activate the feature without waiting for the update. Pretty cool

As an addition, you can also activate it with the screen off if it's plugged in.
Works great on my G2.

just wanted to let everyone know this feature could cause your stock camera to not record videos. if you experience that issue, disable the hotword on any screen feature.
