The voice command ‘Ok Google’, it’s been broken for months for many WearOS users. In our case, we have been able to check the error on various devices, such as the OPPO Watch or the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS. Even if we have the Google Assistant active, does not recognize voice command, so we cannot control it this way.

As we read in XDA Developers, it is an error recognized by Google, reported in the Google Issue Tracker and with solution underway. It is not known exactly when the error occurred and how it arose, but as they have recognized in statements for The Verge, they are “aware of the problems that some users have been encountering”.

If voice commands aren’t working for you in WearOS, you’re not alone

Ok google

In our recent reviews we found that ‘Ok Google’ did not work on WearOS devices. If we look at the Google Issue Tracker we see messages from months ago in, 2020, indicating that command detection does not work.

OPPO, TicWatch, Suunto, Fossil and Motorola have models affected by this WearOS bug

Comments are counted by dozens, indicating that in models like the TicWatch Pro 3, Fossil Gen 5, Suunto 7, Fossil Sport 4, 3rd generation Moto 360 and more watches, ‘Ok Google’ detection does not work. There are reports in Reddit for seven months indicating the problem and, although the cause of the problem is not known, it is estimated that it may be caused by some important update of WearOS.

Google has recognized the problem and will work on a solution to it, although there is no date set for the update. As there is no patch or manual solution at the moment, if your model is affected there is no other choice but to wait.
