    I seem to have lost Google Assistant. It no longer responds to " Ok, Google ".
    Battery settings seems fine.
    "Hi Bixby" is working fine.
    I recall seeing a voice recognition off message flash on a couple days ago.
    I cannot find a simple toggle in any of the Settings to turn Google Assistant back on.
    Holding the home key also does not activate the Google Assistant.
    Any specific fix here?
    Please include detailed step-by-step instructions.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, access has changed with recent updates. The following sequence is on my HTC 10:-

    Open the Google app, tap 'More' at bottom right, tap 'Settings' on the next page (I haven't shown this page as it includes personal information) then 'Voice' followed by 'Voice match'.

    There is no need to post in 3 different threads, on e is sufficient, if you get no responses from your first post, let us know and we'll move your thread to where you prefer it. If it is post in too many sections, it becomes confusing to all.

    The problems is that the Voice Match settings you show above appears grayed out on my N8 phone.

    It suggests to go to overall settings app > language & input > voice input > select 'Google",
    but when I go to languages & input, I see not voice input setting.
    Arggg.

    Press above The app drawer, for a few seconds, it should pop up.

    Bottom center, it has usually six dots inside a round circle.

    What page bottom center?
    Anyway I just disabled and re-enabled the Google App from the phone's main App setting and that seemed to work which is good.

    Well on my phone it is in the dead center - its the only circle I have above my main circle outside of the frame.

    I'm not understanding your description. Perhaps post a screen shot to clarify if you want.
