Like I said, the hardware is there, so why not take advantage of it and active the feature? I know for a fact that this functionality is already supported in the z5 compact (SD810), that does not mean that it can't be activated on the z3 compact (SD801) though, it's just a matter of implemeting the code to use the hardware that is just there sitting waiting to be harnessed. The community would definitely appreciate an official statement regarding this subject.

I'd like to know if the z3 compact supports features such as "Always On" in Google Now/Search app even if the screen is off and not charging. (Similar to "Always Listening" from Moto X, where your phone is always listening for a command without draining too much battery). It is of my understanding that the hardware-technology is available since in EVERY Snapdragon from the series 8xx there is a dedicated chip that is always listening, but I don't know whether it's a licensed feature or not and If it is available in current roms of the Z3 compact. If it's not avaiable, then why? https://www.qualcomm.com/videos/snapdragon-voice-activation https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/254i85/the_snapdragon_800_and_801_have_the_hardware_to/
