    I have Nexus 5 with Kitkat. For text messages I'm using the default app - Hangouts. I want to send texts using my voice and have the phone convert what I say to text. But I can't figure out how to do this in the hangout app.
    I can send a text if I start with OK Google on the home screen, but I want to do it from Hangouts.

    Tap the mic on the keyboard when you're ready to speak the text.
