 OK Google Not Working? Here Is How To Fix It

OK Google Not Working? Here Is How To Fix It

OK Google refers to the voice command needed to activate the Google Now voice search feature on your Android smartphone. The voice command is usually usable after having opened the Google search app, however, certain handsets allow the feature to be used even when the phone is in sleep mode. While this is certainly a cool feature and has been advertised to great effect by Google, there have been some implementation glitches and obstacles experienced by several users. Today we are tackling the somewhat tricky area of what to do in order to get your OK Google feature working again when it just won’t pay attention and carry out your orders! The reason the issue is tricky is that there can be several problems and changes to your settings the may be causing issues to arise. Nevertheless, we will endeavor to get that smartphone to (and we are paraphrasing the great Eric Cartman here) ‘respect your arthoritah!’

However, before we get into these, we first want to deal with an issue that isn’t really a functionality problem, but caused several users difficulties at the start because of a lack of awareness of how the product worked. We are talking about the Trusted voice settings.

Get OK Google to work on your lock screen

When OK Google was first released, several users where upset because they could not use their OK Google from their locked phone screen, even though they had seen the happy campers in the Google advertisements do just this. This was not a glitch but rather an additional security setting added in by Google. In order to get this to work, users needed to enable the ‘Trusted Voice’ setting. To check this is enabled on your phone, go to:

  1. Settings
  2. Voice
  3. ‘OK Google’ detection
  4. Ensure ‘Trusted Voice’ is set to the on position.

If you find that your Android voice commands are still not working from the locked screen on your phone, you may have one of several phones that do not allow this functionality, such as the Nexus 6, Moto X, Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge.

And now, on with the Solutions

Like we said, there can be a few issues at work when it comes to problems with OK Google functionality, so we are going to prioritize them in terms of popularity (or perhaps notoriety is a better word here.)

1. Check your Language settings

In previous iterations of the Google voice search feature, it was only able to respond to US English. That has since changed, with Google rolling out dozens of other languages since 2014 (although many languages are still not supported). However, this feature needs to be enabled, so if you don’t speak English as a first language, this may be the issue. In order to enable other languages, you should first ensure you have the latest feature of the Google Search App. Then go to:

  1. Settings
  2. Voice
  3. Languages
  4. This will open a list of languages. Check the boxes next to the languages you want OK Google to recognize. Good news for that rarest of breed, the multi-linguist.
  5. You can select up to five languages that OK Google will recognize a search request in.

2. Check the microphone. If it can’t hear you, it can’t help you.

Naturally, as a voice command application, OK Google relies heavily on the presence of an effective and fully functional microphone. The problems you may be experiencing with your microphone may be related software or may be hardware based. When you have the Google app open, the microphone status is displayed thanks to an icon located on the right hand side of the search bar. It should be drawn in an unbroken line if it is working correctly. If it is made up of a broken line, there may be an issue with your microphone. If the problem stems from the phone itself, you should refer back to your phones user manual to help resolve it, or failing that, the phone manufacturer. Before you do that, however, go through these simple checks.

Check the hardware

You might not realize it, but small bits of dust and debris can clog up the tiny hole that leads to your microphones. Use a safety pin or needle to investigate and dislodge anything that may be preventing good auditory reception.

Check your Apps

Several apps run continuously on your phone and may be contributing to low or even high level background noise that is interfering with your microphone. Have a look at what apps are running and disable any you think might be creating noise, then check to see if your android commands are still not working.

3. Lastly, for all you Samsung users

So it looks like the S voice feature on Samsung phone isn’t always compatible with Google Now. And like a cruel divorce, this issue will force you to choose your favorite child. Unfortunately, disabling S Voice doesn’t do the trick normally. You will likely have to remove it altogether to fix OK Google recognition.

Okay Google still not working? Let us know

We hope this article helped you get your futuristic visions of voice commands for everything back on track. If you have an issue that wasn’t mentioned here, or you found a different solution for one of these problems, please let us know in the comments below. We are also aware that there have been some functionality clashes between OK Google and specific settings in certain apps, but we didn’t have time to get into all of them here. If you have had issues with some of these and resolved them, please let us know!

So getting the OK google to work from the app is not the problem. The problem is that little thin google search that is built into my display will not activate the voice search, I have to click the microphone symbol first then voice my query. Having voice recognition is really not that useful if you have to open the google app or click a microphone first. Then again, I have to unlock the phone to get to any functions that use voice so………

Can you help me, please? I do not know why nor when it all started, but it annoys me a lot. Whenever I say OK Google (whether I say it in Spanish or English) it makes a beep and I say something. It hears me well, but says “Offline: no network available”. Even if I try to use the offline voice commands, it does not work. I can use all of my apps without any problem, even Google Chrome so… what can I do?

Note 4 does support voice command from lock screen always has since lollipop. Mine stopped working after Google update so i disabled updates and it worked again but forgot to switch off automatic update in settings and overnight it updated again lol When I tried to repeat disable updates it wouldn’t work. My guess is it’s deliberate from Google.

I tell it to send an SMS. It asks me who I want to send it to. I then speak the text I want to send. It asks me if this is correct and if I want to send it. I say SEND. It then says sending.

It then comes back and says ‘message couldn’t be sent’
No other information.

I have tried changing the default SMS app back to messages but still the same result.

I have tried it on other phones and it works perfectly. Not on other Opportunities phones though.

I’m having the same exact issue on my Motorola Droid turbo 2. Worked fine before the Android update… However can’t be certain it was that. I had just gotten a replacement phone and was playing around with the settings. Before I was able to use both Moto voice with Google now because both had different trigger phrases, so no conflict usually, but I’m not sure if with the Android update (which made Android pay not work also by the way) made them incompatible. However, I disabled and stopped moto voice but still to no avail. The little message comes to when I tried to”train voice” as”microphone didn’t work restart device”. Again, my Microsoft works in every other way except to set up and activate Google voice and none of the above”solutions” apply or make any difference. IS THERE A WAY TO FIX THIS OR NOT, BC THEN I WILL JUST STICK TO MY MOTO VOICE THAT SEARCHES ON Google for some things anyway. But would like to know why it didn’t work anyway.

Problems with “OK Google” solved.

I think I may have stumbled upon a solution to the problem of Google Assistant not working correctly. Specifically, issues with “OK Google”. Like all android phones makers, Motorola, my phone manufacturer, added their own software to supplement or even compete with Google’s offerings to my phone, the Moto Z Play.. And, I found out the hard way that turning on some of these features can trigger conflicts that are hard to diagnose. In my case, Motorola, (lenovo to be precise), offers their own sauce on the Moto Z Play. I have turned one some of these options on like voice….etc and forgot about it. I had no problem until Nougat was pushed out in March and ugly gremlins started to appear. My phone would talk back to me, uninvited or will listen to conversations and provide answers to unasked questions. Sometimes, the phone would carry both sides of a conversation as though possessed. I listen to audible on my phone and every 5 minute or so, the reading would be interrupted with chime noises and questions about “what I have just said” before resuming a few seconds later. I almost threw the phone out the windows a couple of times. It was that frustrating. I tried everything imaginable to resolve the problem to no avail. I even turned off the microphone on Google. The phone would still attempt to listen and stay stuck on that screen showing the 4 moving dots. I tried retaining OK Google and could never complete the process because the would trigger a response from the phone on the first try. I visited many user sites many times, tried all suggestions and did not get any relief. Then, today, out of the blue, I remembered about the Motorola’s additions, like voice…I went into into all of them and for good message turned them all off. Rebooted, and good grief, that was it. My phone is back and all the gremlins have been put to pasture. Beware of manufactures additions. When in doubt start there.

None of this worked for me. Samsung note 8. June 2018 ok google VR stopped but if I use home screen or microphone button it is responsive. The fix I found was in the ok google settings the allow voice activation setting was toggled off and greyed out. I had to open my google app and clear all cache and then search history and then open google assistant, which walked me through training the VR with my voice again. Works fine now. I never toggled it off so it was a samsung update.
Hope this helps someone.

Joy try what I just posted. It worked for me. When disabled the two apps Google and text to speech the enable them again and I had to hit update for Google it started the process over like a new phone. Take your time and follow what I wrote. It doesn’t take that long. I’m praying it works for you. Let me know. Good luck! ??

EVERYONE here is what I did…it worked for me.
1. Go to apps
2. Go to “text to speech,” hit “disable,” let it there for a moment.
3. In apps still, Go to “Google,” I Uninstalled it, it will ask you or tell you it will go back to the factory settings for Google, hit yes or continue. Then you will see update there, don’t update it yet.
Wait about 5 minutes or so
4. Go back to apps then “text to speech” and “enable” it.
5. Go back to Google and hit “update” it will take you to playstore to update it.

Now go to Google icon and hit the 3 lines on the bottom go to “voice,” then go to “voice offline speech recognition” and I noticed it was downloading a speech recognition and as it was I seen cancel, update by wifi only and auto update and I chose “auto update” and I let it complete.

Once completed.
Went into voice, then voice match and (you should notice it looks different.) I turned on the “access with voice match” and I said OK google 4xs and it worked. My calls can hear me now and everything works. Good luck I hope it works for you all to. ?

I have a Google pixel 2 xl. My commands (both hey Google and ok Google) worked when I first bought my phone but after one of the updates it stopped. I can press the microphone button and he’ll talk to me all day, but he won’t respond to the voice commands to bring him up without touching the mic. I’ve tried and checked everything. Please help.
