So I had a couple of Moto X Plays laying around which I wanted to repurpose as "Google Home" and security camera. So I take the necessary steps to install and update Google. Trying out Assistant gives me the: "Google recognized your voice, all set" -sequence and shuts of the toggle for voice match again. Weird! So I keep trying solutions upon solutions and I even revert back to stock rom 7.1.1 and to my surprise it start working again, that is, until I update my Google app again. Now somewhere Google seems to have decided not to support older ROMs anymore. Because guess what: that same version still works fine on my daily driver Samsung Galaxy S9 stock ROM. I am wondering: Is Google deliberately making newer versions of the Google App have Voice Match fail on these older roms (7.1.1 stock and 7.1.2) or am I just being an idiot?
That said I'm gonna try and find out which version of Google App I can get my older ROM to have voice match again.
