Title: change to hey google

nothing official, but it look like you may be able to change google to a custom name soon.  that would be good for those who own gh

recently conducted a breakdown of the Google app (version 7.20), and while doing so, discovered a string of code suggesting that users will soon be able to replace the "Ok, Google" and "Hey, Google"prompts with whatever you choose.

Good news for Alexa owners, too.  Too many of my Dots respond to Hey or OK Google.  Go figure!

Whaaaat? LOL   Sometimes I say "hey google, er, Alexa" and Google will reply with "I'm flattered but that's not my name" I'm thinking Niles and Athena.  Personally I don't see the big deal with the Hey/OK Google.  At least Hey/OK Google will still work even if  you've renamed them.  Provided any of this actually happens.  I'M JUST WAITING ON TEXTING!
