How To Enable “OK OnePlus” Feature On OnePlus One After CM12 Update
This Thursday, Cyanogen finally rolled out the much anticipated and delayed Cyanogen OS 12 update, for OnePlus One with a new build number YNG1TAS17L, based on Android Lollipop version 5.0.2.
The update which had been suspended temporarily due to some bugs, has now also integrated the missing voice activation functionality called “OK OnePlus” (akin to OK Google) along with the bug fixes. The update weighs in at 584 MB.
So before you activate the voice command, make sure your One is updated to latest Cyanogen OS release. If you have not received the update yet, you can install it manually on rooted and non-rooted devices.
Once your device is packed with new Cyanogen OS 12 firmware, follow through the following steps to enable the OK OnePlus feature:
- Open Settings
- Select Language and input
- Select Voice Wakeup
Annnd that’s about it. All it now needs is to train your phone saying OK OnePlus.
According to the members on the OnePlus forum who have managed to activate the feature, it does not affect the battery. But judging from the comments on the forum, the feature appears to cause frustration during the training phase, and seems inaccurate. However, it loads up pretty quickly once it listens.
“It doesn’t appear to be using a lot of battery power. Standby times are more or less the same thus far,” confirms a forum member.
As confirmed by Steve Kondik, those who are still on CM11 will first get a small update weighing 8MB, which will prepare the device for the real update that will be immediately followed by the new Cyanogen OS 12 update.
