‘Ok Google…’ it’s something that you either love or hate on your Android phone, but now it’s coming to ChromeOS, with Always-On voice search popping up in the Dev-Channel.
ChromeOS advocate François Beaufort has announced the new addition on Google+ over the weekend, advising the feature is now available in the Dev-Channel if you enable the correct flag, and have your Chromebook unlocked.
To enable the feature, load up the chrome://flags and search for the #enable-hotword-hardware flag, and toggle it to on. Once enabled go to Settings and check ‘Enable “Ok Google”‘ and like voice search in Lollipop or on a Moto X, you’ll be asked to repeat the phrase ‘Ok Google’ three times. Once it’s done you’ll be searching with your voice in no time.
