    I've just bought the LG 6, but after setting up the voice assistant it doesn't always work, and never opens up when the screen is off. I also thought that by holding the home screen icon, it should launch the assistant, but it doesn't. It just sometimes works by me saying "ok google" but most times it doesn't. anyone got any ideas or do LG have a shop where I can take it

    Mine is exactly the same. Occasionally it unlocks when I say 'OK Google' but most times it doesn't. I have to hold my finger on the circle at the bottom of the screen to open it. I've retrained my voice loads of times but it makes no difference

    Am i missing a post somewhere?

    I haven't experienced this issue vinney. The only time Ok Google doesn't work is if I completely Power off by long pressing the round button on back and tapping on Power off. If I do a short press that just turns off the screen (you'll hear a little clicking sound if you did it right) and Ok Google works fine.

    No mine doesn't work with just the screen off. It does sometimes , perhaps once in ten goes

    Maybe it's a carrier thing? I got mine unlocked.
     
  6. Just tested mine for the first time. I'm quite impressed and didn't have any issues with google assistant opening or understanding me :)

    Maybe something is wrong.

    Still the same some of the time. I did get it to work from the lock screen once today though

    Try downloading the app from the Play Store. I just did it a day or so ago and was surprised it let me. Maybe the one on the Play Store is an update to the one that was shipped?

    Then go to Phandroid and check out Joe Fedwa's list of updated "Easter Egg" commands for Google Assistant. :cool:
