Starting from Android 4.4 KitKat, which was launched in 2013, the only way to pull up Google’s virtual assistant with your voice is “OK Google” hotword. That was changed a bit when the search engine giant Google launched Google Home which lets you summon The Almighty Google Assistant with both “OK Google” and “Hey Google” hotwords. This functionality seems to be coming to the phones very soon. Using it one can summon Google Assistant with both OK Google and Hey Google voice commands.
