Did you know your Galaxy Note 3 could do always listening voice wake-up similar to the highly advertised "Okay, Google Now" touchless control features on the Moto X?

#1 You have to say "Hi Galaxy" (while the screen is off)
#2 SVoice will try to service you, which is much less capable (to say the least) than Google Now

While there is no way to fix #1, the more important problem #2 can be solved with my little app.It does a "bait and switch" style intervention whenever S Voice would start, to redirected to Google Voice Search.

NEW: Offline time/battery announce mode

Instead of starting Google Voice Search, you can have the phone announce the time and/or battery level, when you wake up the phone by saying "Hi Galaxy". This can be convenient when abroad, since without Internet connection neither S Voice nor Google Voice search could do anything.

You can enable it by toggling the "After wake up switch to?" buttons between Google Voice Search and Announce mode. Or optionally you can have it auto enable while offline. You can choose what to announce: time, battery level or both.

I used this mode while skiing, I could just say "Hi Galaxy" (or "Time Galaxy") without even taking out the phone from my pocket.

The new WRITE_SETTINGS permission is needed to turn off the phone quickly after the switch happens, to avoid unwanted screen touches in the pocket. Display timeout is temporarily shortened for this.


When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next.
