I used to say "responder" (reply) after playing an incoming Whatsapp message and I was able to speak to dictate the reply and send it without problem. About 15 days ago, this voice command stopped working and every time I say "responder", Google assistant says "Disculpa, aún no se como ayudarte con eso" (sorry, I don't know how to help you with that yet) or "Tal vez te pueda ayudar si preguntas de otra manera" (maybe I can help you if you ask in a different way).
The only workaround I have is to compose a new message to the person I want to reply, but it takes a lot of time and is very annoying to do those steps for every message if you're having a conversation, and this workaround doesn't work on groups as I can't create new messages for a group. Is there a fix for this issue? Thanks in advance.

I confirm that in Italian I can't answer any more to messages. I used to say "Rispondi al messaggio" (reply to message) but now Assistant days it doesn't know how to help me.
If I say just "Rispondi" (reply) as suggested by Assistant after it reads the incoming message, the Assistant response is "eh?" like I were joking, or some other funny response.
This is quite a serious malfunction.

Same thing is happening in Brazilian Portuguese. Just one difference: AA answers my reply command with Ok, is this good? and never asks me to dictate my aswer.
