Google works on a solution

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. Although 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 a solution in place. It is not known exactly when the error occurred and how it arose, but as they have recognized in statements to The Verge, they are "aware of the problems that some users have been encountering."
