Hi fran2!

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

If I understand correctly, you mean the feature which allows you to say "Ok, Google" to your phone to start a voice search or have Google do something for you, right?

 

You may just need to activate this in the settings for the Google app. To do this:

 

Open the Google app (the blue one)

- In the top left corner of the page, touch the Menu icon, once there select: Settings > Voice > "Ok Google" detection.

- Then check the box next to "From any screen"
 
Hope this helps! Smiley

Re: Google voice search

Sorry, I'm confused. to open the Google App do I go to www.Google.ca first..then I clicked on the left corner Menu icon but did not see Settings>Voice>Ok Google" detection.

Can't see "From any screen" on my phone, should I do this on line?   confused...this program worked fine and not I still have the blue Google icon on my phone but it won't open

Re: Google voice search

Hey Fran,

 

Have you made sure that the app is enabled? The easiest way to do it is to hold your press and hold the icon until you have the following choices: 
Edit
Remove
App Info

 

On App info, you can see if it is enabled or not. Once you have made sure it is, click here and follow the steps. 

 

Let us know Smiley
