I have a samsung galaxy A5 running android 4.4.4. I've seen many kitkat devices having the text "say ok google" on the google search widget in the home screen. How can I get that? It gives the look of a flagship and is awesome.
I figured out a way. I uninstalled the updates of the google app in my device and re-installed the latest version from the play stoore. Then the text appeared. Once I activate ok google detection form "any screen" the text disappears.
If I remember correctly it requires Samsung to enable something. You could try going into the Google app and have a poke around (
OK Google detection) and see if there's an option there. If not install the Google Now Launcher which does the OK Google from home screen.
