Has anyone else had issues with Google Assistant or with Speech to text after the Oreo update? Prior to the update it worked flawlessly. Now I have a hard time getting Assistant to activate. Sometimes it doesn't start at all, or will pop up and not be listening for a voice command.
I also use Gboard for messaging. The speech to text function fails after two or three consecutive texts. I hit the microphone button again and it's not listening. I tried using another keyboard (Swiftkey) that uses Googles speech to text function and experienced the same issues.
I have tried:
• wiping the cache partition
• master reset
• disabling Amazon Alexa (an unwelcome and involuntary addition to my phone)
• wiping the data and cache of the LG stock keyboard (a so-called fix I found elsewhere).
Nothing has worked. Very disappointing as prior to this update this had been the best phone I'd ever had.
You've done everything I can think of to fix this. Is your Google Assistant installed as a standalone app? If so, you could try checking for updates or uninstalling/reinstalling it to see if that works.
