    My Google Assistant stops activating when I say "OK Google" or "Hey Google".
    I keep retraining it at least once a day. I've cleared cache and data several times and it keeps doing the same thing. It works for a out 12 hours then it stops recognizing "OK Google" or "Hey Google". This started happening about a week ago and it happens EVERY DAY!
    I've had this phone for less than a year and Google Assistant had been working normally.
    Latest Android update was on March 26. Update number is G986USQU1DUBB.
    I'm on Verizon.
    I would appreciate any suggestions, short of a factory reset.
    Thank you.

    It's a known bug in the latest version of Android web view affecting a lot of Google apps.

    They did just roll out at least one update to ASW, was that the fix or is there still trouble?

    i believe the latest update to the chrome browser and web view did the trick.....so most phones should be fine by now unless somehow the op's phone never got or received the update.

    The latest update I have of Chrome is from March 22nd (I have it on automatic update). And I just had this problem last night (the 28th). I'll continue monitoring it to see what happens. Thanks anyway.

    To be honest, when I first started out with Android, I had the very same trouble.
    Somehow, the stupid Google thing could not remember my voice for more than 30 seconds or so.
    Right about the time I was going to smash the device to bits, I had a much better idea- just don't use the Google junk.

    My life and devices have been much improved.

    As a side note, where I work many of the guys use Google assistant.
    Lately it has not been working well for them.

    I never use it, finding that it is so much quicker to just open my browser and do a manual search for what I want, rather than argue with Google junk for 10 minutes first then giving up and doing it that way anyway.
