    I've just followed the video through, but I cant get the 'OK google' part to work. When he mentioned about installing the language pack, I already had the UK one on my device. I've uninstalled it & re-installed, but still no luck.

    Any suggestions please? :)

    Is English UK selected as the default language?

    I know previous iterations have had issues with strong accents, but I imagine a phrase like "OK Google" should be simple enough to understand.

    GEL is definitely the default launcher too? Is Google Now active/turned on?

    It is indeed a problem with UK english. US english has to be selected as the default language for the 'OK Google' to work :(

    Has anyone else run into this?

    GEL likes to pull up my folders in a super-transparent mode sometimes. Closing the folder and reopening it fixes it, but I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed it.

    I haven't but the latest update to the launcher causes 3rd party wallpapers to shift in size back and forth every time I open the app drawer, switch screens, and open folders
