Turning your Nexus 5 into a Moto X: Always-On Listening

When the Nexus 5 came around, a lot of people asked whether or not it would have a very popular feature of the Moto X: it's famous "Ok Google Now" wake-up hotword. People wondered if the MSM8974 chipset of the Nexus 5 supported Always-On Listening, considering various information from Qualcomm.

Well, here's your answer: Nexus 5 - Always-On Listening Proof of Concept

The hardware is there and the software is capable of handling it. It's far from being stable, and not releaseable in the current state (for various reasons). This is only just a proof-of-concept to show that it's possible.

I hope to be able to bring it to more people in the future, but not in the meantime.

EDIT: To further clarify, this is indeed using the dedicated audio processing chip of the S800 - that's the whole point of this PoC. The CPU is indeed turned off and isn't used at all for the audio processing.

Happy to have completed the process of updating the Eclipse logo. It was time for a refresh and I really like the results. Thanks to everyone for the feedback and comments.  More details are available at

I can't believe I haven't thought of that before! Spreading research papers & data sets via bit-torrent.

It does make a lot of sense and the benefits are quite obvious but I'm a little worried about authenticity and integrity. Since everyone can upload any paper or data set, what's stopping them from a) uploading a modified, fake version of a paper or b) uploading bogus data altogether. One way to overcome these issues is to have a central organization that will "manage" this distributed network - it will maintain a directory of public keys and will verify the authenticity of their owners. Then all content would have to be digitally signed by the author(s).

Just some thoughts ... +Electronic Frontier Foundation

Hopefully we'll have higher requirements for new patents and an easy (easier) mechanism to challenge bad ones.

I support this and I support the +Electronic Frontier Foundation , and so should you.
