See ... ADM - Android Device Manager. There are other useful Tips in that thread also.

"okay google now, what time is it"
"okay google now, what is the weather"
"okay google now, when is sunset"
"okay google now,how old is Michael Jordan"

All of these gives a voiced response. Or am I not understanding your question?

Google Voice - it is very soft.

ADM - it is ignored and plays a special ringtone full volume.

"Ok Google Now. Find my droid" I believe will sound an alarm...

Interesting. My phone use to do this, now it does a google search for "find my droid"

EDIT: never mind, it seems to be "call my Droid" that works for me

It works for me about one time in ten and is fairly low with volume on or off.

The ADM method always works.
