My Google Assistant does not catch my voice every time. What can I do?

Is your Google Assistant not consistently recognising your voice in Android Auto? Don't worry, there are a few steps you can take to address this problem:

  • Disable Battery Optimisation: Battery optimisation settings can interfere with Google Assistant's performance. Make sure to disable battery optimisation for Google Play Services, Google, and Android Auto. This can enhance voice recognition capabilities.
  • Verify USB Connection: Occasionally, the issue might be related to the connection method. Test if Google Assistant works reliably when connected via USB. If it does, it could indicate a problem with wireless connectivity or your phone's Wi-Fi settings.
  • Check Power Saving Settings: Power-saving features on your phone might affect the performance of Google Assistant. Ensure that power-saving modes or settings that restrict background activity are turned off while using Android Auto. This can help maintain consistent voice detection.
  • Reboot Your Phone: Sometimes a simple reboot can resolve temporary glitches. Restart your phone and try using Google Assistant again in Android Auto to see if the issue persists.
