Nova Launcher – updated with my favourite feature

You have just bought an android phone, but you don’t like the look or layout. You can install a third party launcher like Nova, which can give you full control of the look and operation.

Well Nova has been updated to include “OK Google” hotword from the home screen. So now, just speak “Ok Google” and Google Search will jump to action.

OK Google – A Welcome Change has Occurred

Unlike Siri, when you asked “Ok Google”, set timer for 10 mins, it previously set the alarm in ten minutes time.

Now it actually sets the timer, and in the case of the Samsung S5, it activates the Clock App , and its timer.

A welcome change, but only at the moment for UK and US customers.
