    My OK Google Now app is acting funny. I liked the Moto Assist app that would read text messages, make calls and such. Lately it's been slow and I get different messages to respond to. I am guessing it's the Google Now App trying to take over for Moto Assist. When I get asked to respond, I don't even get time to say anything before I am asked to try again. Makes me want to turn it off. But I really liked it before. Anyone have a solution?

    If it is the Google app interfering, you can turn that off (or at least check the settings to see that it is off.)

    Open the Google app, tap the "hamburger" menu control top left, tap settings, tap Voice, tap OK Google detection. See if those settings are on or off.

    Let us know if that works or doesn't.

    I'll give that a try. The Voice command in the Google app was turned on. I shut it off but have not had a chance to test it yet. Hope it works. It just seemed like two different programs were trying to do the same job at the same time.
