Default Can't program voice for Touchless Controls

My Made showed up today and I've ran into a problem. When I go to program the phrase "OK Google Now" for my voice, the record screen shows for a split second and then informs me that it didn't catch that. I've even tried talking as I press the record button, bit no difference. I've tried holding the phone at different lengths from my head, and if the room were any more quiet I be in the ground. Has this happened to anyone else & if so, what was your solution?

Never mind, apparently the Touchless Control app from the play store has to be downloaded before it will record. I'll leave this up if anyone else runs into the same problem.

You also don't have to say 'okay Google now'. You probably still have to say okay, but after that just play around with it a little and see what you can get away with!

I use "OK Droid Now" and it responds to "OK Droid" like "OK Droid Time".

Simply try a different phrase. Try different phrases until one is accepted. Then repeat it for the next two tries. If you get to the end then you have recorded that phrase.

For "OK Droid Now" if I then say "OK Droid Now Time" it sends "Now Time". If I simply say "OK Droid Time" then it sends "Time".

God forbid they should tell you that! This issue was driving me nuts last night after I opened the package and started to set it up. I knew I had seen a post about it, but was too lazy to look yesterday. Thanks for the heads up!

I just activated mine today and this was driving me nuts! This is the reason I have been and will continue to be a android forums user.

I went back to 'OK Google Now' as I had OK Google but every once in a while I would hear command cancelled coming from my pocket..

I understand now why it is an awkward phrase, sometimes it times I am commanding it when I am not
