This feature has the ability to listen to "ok google" when display is off so that it can listen to voice command. This feature comes very handy when you have to search anything in google but you are traveling in a car or you are doing something in which you can’t access your smartphone.

So basically, this guide will help you to use this feature even when your screen is Off or you aren’t connected to the charger.
