You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we will show you how to enable "OK, Google!" from any screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
In order to enable "OK, Google!" from any screen, you will need to have your phone unlocked.
It should be on the home screen or any other screen that you may have. You will see our search bar reading, "Google". It also says, 'Say "OK Google"'.
Now, move close to the phone and say, "OK, Google!" Then the "OK, Google!" feature opens up.
Now, you have the option to say "OK, Google!" again or to tap the microphone icon.
You can also tap on the home screen.
If we swipe to another screen and say "OK, Google!" then nothing will happen.
In order to set up "OK, Google!" to work on every screen, you need to press and hold the home button.
This opens the "Google" application.
You have the option to say "OK, Google!" as well.
You can also tap on the hot-dog menu in the upper-left corner.
Then, tap once on "Voice".
Tap on the '"OK Google" detection' option.
This enables you to use it on any screen.
Tap on "From any screen".
Now, you are told that "OK, Google!" saves voice and audio activity.
You can tap on "YES, I'M IN".
Now, you need to train the voice model.
Say, "OK, Google!" three times. Now, your phone will recognize your voice when you say, "OK, Google!" Search queries will be tied to your account. You can change these settings later in the Google Search app. Now, "OK, Google!" will work on any screen.
You can also tap on "Trusted voice".
This will unlock our device when the sound matches your voice model. We will discuss that in the another tutorial, as it's a little more complicated.
For now, let's press the home button.
Let's try to see if the option works from other screens.
Then, ask, "What time is it?" The answer pops up.
In this video, Google will say, "The time is 2:49 AM".
Let's press the home button.
Swipe back to the home screen.
