I can't use hands free. I've been through all of the steps many times. It used to work. Now the icon4 the app isn't in my app selection. I have2 go2 the play store& when I do, it shows "open" but yet it's not on my app list& I'm unable to "hey Google" hands free. I'm unable2 uninstall &reinstall. Don't know how to fix! Oh, and when I go to train the voice part, the blue button turns on but it appears 2b off til I get to that page. It always worked. It works w/microphone not handsfree

The voice seems cut in and out. It cuts in and out when reading my text messages while I'm driving. The best way to describe this, it's like when you are on the phone with someone and they are in a bad area with weak signal and they go in and out and then eventually the call drops. I'm in a good area with good signal and it does it when I am driving and using Android Auto or Google drive mode to read text messages or send a text message.

Sounds like many are continuing to deal with Google Voice malfunctioning. I toggle it on, then I go back and check it and it's toggled off again. I have restarted phone, clear cache. This has been an ongoing issue for over a year and now it works intermittently. Even here I press the open button and Assistant comes on screen but does not recognize any sound. It was working a few min. Ago and yes the volume is up. Maybe Google in all its glory has come to its end... Time to hang up the coat.
