I am having issues activating voice input for google assistant. eg after you say "Hey Google". it will bring up google assistant, but fail to wait and listen to my voice command.

wondering if this is just me or others are facing similar issue?

My old pixel 4 with android 12 is having similar issues.

I also have problems with this. Even if only English (US) is set as phone and assistant language, it still doesn't want to "activate".

I also can't activate "Quick phrases" - it says "Quick phrases aren't available on this device" - even though it's supported in English, German and Japanese.

I tried everything I could think of - updated all apps, changed phone language to English (tried out US, UK, Germany, Australia), German, Japanese - changed assistant language - played around with the availability of the Hey Google feature - changed Google Assistant voices. Nothing helped. Anyone else have an idea?

Thanks for confirming this. At least i know i am not alone.

Looks like another bug on Android 12. 😒

Android 12 is still very buggy and we need some stable release.!

You need to clear all Google app data then it will you'll see a message the Assistant model got updated and it will work.
