    I realized a cool little tip for people who are annoyed with the fact that you can't use Google Now by voice from the home screen
    (if you don't like clutter in your notification bar, ignore this)

    If you download Utter BETA from Google Play you can turn on the wake up phrase option and just say "Okay Google" you can launch it just like on stock :thumbup::D

    Figured some people would like to know that!

    There's also Open Mic+ to be able to say "Okay Google" (or gesture) anywhere even when the screen if off.

    We're talking about 3rd party launchers here, yeah?


    Helpful tip as far as:
    You could always turn off notifications for that app

    I understand changing to the standard Nexus 5 launcher will make this feature work again. I just can't figure out how to do this on my Cyanogenmod Nexus 5.
