    I just started using AutoVoice and I'm a little confused. When creating an AutoVoice Event, what is the difference between Recognizer and Ok Google Now? I know there must be a big difference as Ok Google Now events have no configuration. Is it simply a trigger that Ok Google Now was activated and all the processing happens in the task? Could someone provide a good use case to use Ok Google Now where Recognizer wouldn't work?

    I think I'm missing something fundamental and it's driving me nuts!

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, that's exactly the difference :)
    "Ok Google Now" condition will trigger whenever you say "ok Google" and the Google now voice prompt comes up. You can use this to override the default behaviour of google now and start your own voice recognition screen or anything else you may want.

    "AutoVoice recognized" is triggered whenever AutoVoice picks up a new voice command.

    Hope this clarifies it.
