In the voice match options, make sure that the options are setup to let you access the Okay Google search whenever you say OK Google to your screen, when the phone is on.

It is also possible to let your phone unlock your device when you say OK Google in front of your locked device, and that it is recognized as your voice.


Finally, there is an option to allow OK Google to work while you are driving and using the Google Maps app for example.
