[How-to] Access ‘Google Now’ Anywhere On Your Android Smartphone

Dear Android users. Have you ever wanted to access or enable Google Now from anywhere on your phone and not just limited to the homescreen?

Well now you can! Be sure to have installed the latest version of GOOGLE SEARCH app on your device and it should be able to work if you follow these steps below.

Step 1: Head on to settings > Language & Input
Step 2: Scroll down to ‘Voice Search’

Step 3: Tap on ‘OK Google’ Detection
Step 4: Enable the checkbox for ‘From any screen’. If you want to say OK Google from the lockscreen, you can enable that too.

TADA! Now you can say “OK Google” anywhere on your phone to begin searching.
