I installed the 2.8 version, an issue I found is that after a few seconds the watch times out and it stops talking. I have the time out for 15s.
And sometimes the watch thinks I don't have my wrist upwards and locks before also.

But it's already a progress :)
Now only if Google would already release the official.

I have this issue also. Sometimes it works perfectly. Other times it will put the screen-saver digital time thing over top of it before I can speak or while it is speaking and I have to activate it again. This is even with AOD on.

Ok, solo curioso, y estoy siendo serio ...

¿Es Bixby realmente tan malo? Quiero decir, quiero totalmente el Asistente de Google en el Watch 4, y soy un fanático del Asistente de Google. Y nuestro principio, ES un reloj Wear os, DEBERÍA tener GA en él.

Pero solo curioso, ¿no puede Bixby hacer todas las cosas comunes como enviar mensajes de texto, clima, abrir aplicaciones, etc.?

Is Bixby really that bad? I mean, I totally want Google Assistant on the Watch 4, and I am a Google Assistant fan. And our of principle, it IS a Wear os watch, it SHOULD have GA on it.

But just curious, can't Bixby do all the common things like Sending Texts, Weather, Opening Apps, etc?
Bixby is not so bad. The phone version of Bixby brings you almost the same features of GA(almost). It will be perfect for me...but this handicapped watch version, is terrible. If only could make internet searches...

Bixby flat out doesn't fit in for me. I have Google and Nest devices throughout my home that work just fine with Assistant. Even if it were possible, I don't want to set every light bulb, smart switch, ceiling fan, tv, etc. up with Samsung Smart Things.

"Hey, Bixby, turn on the lamp." just gets a screen that reads 'Please wait' and never does anything. "Hey, Bixby, turn on the TV." 'Oh, I couldn't find that device.' because Smart Things only works with Samsung televisions and all four in my home are Vizio (which work just fine with Google Assistant).

I'm waiting for a new Wear OS device so we can snag and sideload Assistant from it.

Is it possible to send text and voicemessages via WhatsApp like in the all-star video? The command "configure WhatsApp" isn't working.
I also have the 15sec off issue.

Recent user of galaxy watch 4, I found here a solution to add Google assistant on the watch, but for my experience this solution is little buggy

Sometimes when I launch Google Assistant go (with app link or buton double tap) the watch freeze sometime more than 30 sec, not really helpfull.
For my last try (I already have check all app permission) the app don't reconize voice command.

So at the moment it's not really a great deal for me to use this, more than nothing but when bug comes, it was really more speed to go to the phone to have full experience of google assistant without bug or freeze.....

Booth are working. Just sideload it, and set assistant as default.
Does anybody know what's in this Chrome apk that makes it work on Galaxy Watch? It's definitely an older version but I think it was modded so it doesn't crash on Wear OS.

Also, With this Chrome app installed on Galaxy Watch, it lends support for Google Go SearchLite v1.7 to launch links within SearchLite instead of an external browser on Galaxy Watch. I'd love to explore this dynamic further. Usually I use it with Samsung browser where Google Go provides quick searching and external linking into Samsung Internet. Now I can just do everything within Google Go which lends support for Lite web pages option. Note: Newer versions of Search Lite don't work.

With Chrome installed, is it possible that the watch gains WebView or CCT support?

When I try to send a text message using Google Assistant Go on my galaxy watch 4, it says that it is sending the message, but it never appears in the messages app on my watch or my phone. Has anyone else experienced this?

    MOD EDIT: Quote removed since post removed.

    That's been talked about before and it's super sketchy. You have to install some random guys app store, give his app tons of permissions, pay him then you get a limited version of Google assistant.

    His telegram group have banned people for asking about the security concerns of his apps permissions. Super sketchy

    Hi guys, only want to share my experience trying to install the google app and google assistant in my Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

    1) Download the google app (wear os) on apk mirror

    2) active the developer mode in the watch, turn on debug mode and debug on wifi

    3) install "Wear installer" on my phone and connect to the watch, from here traspassing and install the google app on the watch

    4) the app not show in the launcher, but i can change the predefined assistent app to Google!!! I show you in the pictures added

    I have no idea how to make this work, but is promissing!! Maybe somebody read this and can make it, or maybe this almost compatibility mean that the official app is coming in the near futue!

    Sorry for my english, im spanish

    Unfortunately the official GA isn't avaible in a lot of country (my poor Italy included)... There Is a way to sideload the apk and make It work? Speaking english isn't a problem.
    Use Bugjaeger app connect to your watch with wifi adb to your phone and try sideloading this official Google Assitant app pulled from my Watch4Classic 46mm N America Region 😉
