Default What happened to what's up

For a while I was able to say OK Google and then say what's up and it would tell me my notifications. But lately it won't respond to what's up. Anybody know how to fix this?

Reboot doesn't work but I think that because I am using a female English voice she doesn't understand the what's up phrase. I wonder how you say what's up in England 😀

There is the Droid/Moto X touchless controls "OK Google Now" and the Android Google Search "OK Google" detection, and they are different things. The Touchless Controls "OK Google Now" supports "What's up" but the stock Google search "OK Google" does not.

I believe that Touchless Controls OK Google Now wakes to a black background screen.

Thanks for the reply. I found out that telling Google to read notifications works instead of what's up.

I just did some experimenting and found that everything works as you said with the English (us) voice. But with the English (uk) voice the what's up doesn't work and I have to tell it to read notifications instead.
