    Doesn't work if the phones in sleep mode? On my Droid Maxx "ok Google now"....woke the phone. On the S7 Edge It worked from the home screen not from the black screen???? Is this true??

    Seems to be. Doesn't pretty much have to work that way if you have phone security enabled? You wouldn't want a voice command to bypass the lock screen. I also have a Nexus 9 tablet that never leaves home and and does not contain any sensitive information, so I leave it unlocked, and then I can wake it up with "ok google".

    Unless your carrier has messed with it, it should work fine.
    Go to Settings/Lock screen and security/Secure locks settings/Smart Lock.
    Tap on smart lock and enter your pin.
    Tap on Trusted voice.
    Toggle "From the Google app" to on. It might make sense to retrain the voice model (towards the bottom)

    What is your time to lock set at? On my phone as long as it is asleep okay Google works fine, however after 10 minutes my phone locks and then okay Google will not work( for protection purposes). Check your lock versus sleep times and then try it just as your phone goes to sleep.
