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.
