Last week, Google rolled out an update for the Google Search app that brought with it the “OK Google” hotword detection feature to any screen. However, since the feature is enabled from the server side, it has not yet shown up for majority of the users yet.

While a method to enable this feature is available for rooted users, non-root users have been out of luck until now. Thanks to a simple tip discovered by a Reddit user though, even non-root users can instantly get the “OK Google” hotword detection on their Android device.


Google has expanded its “OK Google” hotword recognition functionality from the homescreen to nine other new languages. Earlier, the hotword detection was only available to English speaking users in the U.K, US and Canada, with support for French and German users added very recently. 


Google has started rolling out a hefty new update to the Google Search app for Android that brings with it a major new feature: OK Google hotword detection from any screen including your secure lockscreen.
