Some users are reporting that even when they turn ON the speaker, they still do not hear the sound of Google’s voice assistant through the speaker.
- Double check that the Assistant voice output is turned on by going to the Assistant screen (swipe to the left screen from the watch dial/home screen), scroll down to the bottom of the Assistant screen and tap on the settings icon. In Assistant settings, make sure “Speech output” is turned ON. Finally, make sure the volume is up and the voice of the Google Assistant should play through the speaker.
- If Assistant fails to show your speech converted to text or is super slow in doing this, it may be caused by a slow or poor connection. Check your Bluetooth and WiFi connections and try again.
- If you are using an iPhone, the Bluetooth connection used is a low-power BLE connection that may take 3 to 5 seconds to transmit all the data back and forth to complete your speech to text. If you want to speed things up, check to make sure WiFi is connected by swiping down to look at the Quick Settings Shade and see if the WiFi symbol is there. If not, go into the WiFi settings page and tap on an available network, make sure you’re signed in, then try Assistant again.
