I used to be able to place a call or send a text by using the Google prompt in my car.  Now when I do, all I get is Google saying "Sure let me get some more information about that".  What happened?  The only thing that changed was the App upgrade, my phone and car are still the same.

Same with me....asking for more information. I found that problem is Google Assistant is not starting automatically. You need start by hand and allow access to contact information. I need to do every day. No idea why GA is not remembering🙁
