OK Google detection not working with screen off

    Ever since I have Google Assistant enabled, my OP3T doesn't react to "OK Google" when the screen is off/the phone is locked. It does still work when it's charging, though.

    I have trusted voice and "Say "OK Google" anytime" enabled.

    Is there a way to enable or fix the OK Google detection when the screen is off when it's not charging?

    I think that feature is only available on google pixel. not sure about that. on my OnePlus 3 it's just like you said. screen off, no response.

    However, before I enabled Google Assistant, I believe my OP3T did react to "OK Google", just not with assistant but with the regular OK Google

    Are you talking about Ok Google or Google Assistant? I recall Ok Google worked on my S7 Edge.

    That feature is only meant to work while charging. There are apps on the play store that will keep your mic on and enable the ability to use the feature while not charging.

    It has never said that for me on any device so far. Correction, it does now. Its obviously a fail from google. This can only be accomplished with specific hw dedicated to the micro and processing of voice input.

    OK Guys,
    I identified the problem. It is google app.
    Google has locked the Ok Google screen off feature, sometime in the past year.
    Result: any phone that hardware-wise supports this feature, and has an updated google app, will not be able to enjoy it.

    whats working? cyanogenmod 13.1.2 (andoroid 6) ---> Important! straight after factory reset, turn off wi-fi, then go to google play and un-tick "automatic update" for google app. then - it works like a charm, also when screen off charging.

    addendum: any phone that requires open gapps will not support this feature. because these apps come updated.

    I have tried it on my OnePlus One with cyanogenmod mm, PA nougat, MeeKo mod.
