One of the more convenient security features added in Android 5.0 Lollipop is "smart lock." Google started rolling out a 'Trusted voice' feature in the Smart Lock menu for Android Lollipop, while it has also added a new Nicknames feature to search for contacts.

According to Android Police :

on Monday, the feature has been silently rolled out to multiple users. Just like the previously Smart Lock features - Trusted face, Trusted devices, and Trusted places - the menu now sports the Trusted voice option to unlock the device.

It is unknown that which version of the Google Play services has got the feature, but  7.0.99 on Lollipop-based Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 smartphones have not received the feature as yet.

With the updated Google app, users will now be able to use Google Now to create nicknames for Contacts on their device. Users can go to Google settings, tap on Search & Now to see if the 'Nicknames' has been added for them under Accounts & Privacy sub-menu.

How Secure is this device :

The popup when you enable "Trusted Voice" warns that the feature is not as secure as a traditional lock screen and that "Someone with a similar voice or a recording of your voice  saying “Ok Google” could unlock your device."
