Possible to use "OK Google" on bluetooth/car?

    My car is enabled for bluetooth. it seamlessly connects automatically whenever I enter the car and my bluetooth is enabled on my phone. it works great for making calls and listening to music.

    however there is one thing that doesn't seem to work - the OK Google feature, which is otherwise really helpful for hands free driving. When it's working, I can ask what the weather is, or the score of a game, and many other things without touching my phone (which would be illegal in my state). I can even send a text message without touching my phone, by saying "send a text message to ____."

    this was really useful with my last car (no bluetooth)... this all works great on my phone now until I get in my car and connect to bluetooth. then OK Google does nothing at all.

    the only workaround i have found is to turn off bluetooth.

    does anyone know a better workaround so that I can keep my phone connected to the car's bluetooth and still use OK Google?

    thanks

    The only way I can ever think of, it is only meant to do a few things, by only voice,
    not by blue tooth. It is always hands free.
    I kind of wonder what type of device you have there?
