Recently the "Ok Google" feature no longer works on my LG G3, unless I factory reset my settings. But after a few hours it stops working again even if I don't change any of my settings back. I even upgraded my phone to Lollipop, but that didn't help either. Also, I tried reprogramming my voice back into my phone via "Google settings", but it won't pick up my voice either. So long story short the only way I can get it to pick up my voice is by clicking the microphone.


Make sure "ok Google" detection is on for every screen. Do this by opening the Google app, navigate to settings > voice > "ok Google detection" and make sure the "from any sceen" option is enabled. Hopefully this solves your problem.

  • I can't enable it anymore. When I try to set up the recognition to enable that feature, it won't pick up my voice – David2100 Aug 28 '15 at 3:36
  • Are you sure your microphone is working? – Zarfing Aug 28 '15 at 13:38
  • Yes, the microphone works because I make calls a lot, and Google will pickup my voice if I click the Google Now microphone or the Talk to text microphone, just not for anything else. – David2100 Aug 28 '15 at 18:02
