  1. Works perfectly…easy step by step instructions. Next time I’m in a car full of androids I won’t set off every phone by saying, OK, Google. Thank you so much!

  2. Huge fail for me on my phone.
    Nexus 6, Lollipop 5.1, Nova Launcher Prime.
    Open mic+ ONLY works for me when I actually OPEN the app first. I have the settings set to always listen.
    This completely and totally renders the app absolutely useless to me.

    The whole reason I even downloaded it was for a better hands free function, as “Okay Google” is doing random searches anytime I’m having a conersation with someone. It’s even picked up my mom’s voice over the phone, started searching on our conversation topic (something I NEVER EVER EVER want any software to do. HUGE, MASSIVE invasion of privacy.) And she didn’t even mention “Google” at all.

    I’ve found “Okay Google” very handy for hands free operation such as while driving… hit the mute button on the radio, “Okay Google, send a text to Rebecca, I’ll be home in about ten minutes.” Do you want to send this? “yes”. Unmute radio.

    With Open Mic+? Not a chance of actual hands free operation for me, not since I have to manually open the app.

    Uninstalling it now.

    • Well. Feeling dumb.
      Reread my post, remembered Nova has voice settings too, and that spurred me to go through ALL voice settings and deactivate everything BUT open mic+. I thought I’d done that when prompted to during set up. I think when the first hotword I tried failed to validate, “Okay Google” was automatically re-enabled.

      All is well and perfect now.

    must you always have it on (where the small icon is showing on the top of the phone)? does this use battery and data? please email me the answer so I don’t miss your reply, thank you.
