More on Wake On Voice (WoV):

This functionality enables the device to be constantly listening for the user’s voice when the particular device is operating in a low power state. The same also includes the case when the device is idle, and the screen is off. This functionality uses a listening mode that operates at lower power than relatively higher power consumption observed during typical microphone recording.

With the help of low power speech recognition, users can conveniently tell a pre-defined key phrase, for example, ‘Hey Cortana.’ This phrase will be followed by a series of speech phrases such as ‘when would be my next appointment’ that calls up speech in a hands-free way. The same will function irrespective of whether the device is currently in use or idle with the screen turned off.

The audio stack is held responsible for communicating the wake data like keyword trigger, speaker ID, and confidence level. Also, the audio stack is responsible for informing interested clients that the keyword has been identified.
