I'm having a very similar issue with the assistant not coming through the head unit of my 2014 Ram truck.

  • Error message: if available  
    • There is no error message
  • Are you using Android Auto on your phone screen or car’s display?
    • I'm using Android Auto on my phone screen
  • Does the issue occur outside of Android Auto app?
    • Yes. It happens with Google Maps/Auto integration when navigating.
  • Car / head unit make & model: if you use Android Auto on your car display
    • I'm not using it on my car display/head unit
  • Phone make & model:
    • Pixel 4XL
  • Android OS version:
    • 11
  • Google app version: (Settings > Apps (or Apps & notifications > App info) > Google)
    • 12.11.9.29.arm64
  • What did you say to Google? How was it recognized by Google? (You can check https://myactivity.google.com/myactivity)
    • While testing I used "Tell me a joke"
    • Most frequently. I want to let the assistant read my incoming text messages to me and there's no sound.
Additional Information: Through trial and error I've found a way to consistently get it to work...to actually hear the assistant while connected using bluetooth. If I switch the head unit to radio, then phone, then media...then ask google to tell me a joke, the sound comes through my head unit. Unless I'm listening to music from the phone, then it "breaks" again. If I listen to music (using Youtube Music) and go back to try this work-around, it doesn't work. I have to kill the Youtube Music app first...then go back through Radio, Phone, Media...in order to hear the assistant.

I can control the phone with audible commands. If I say, "Hey Google, Call Jim Crichter, mobile" that works. The call goes through. I just don't hear any of the confirmation from the assistant on my head unit. But the call audio on the head unit of the truck works fine.

FInally, if I connect to an external bluetooth/broadcast device (plugged in to my cigarette lighter and tune to 88.7 on the radio) everything works as expected. This really seems specific to the bluetooth connection to the uConnect head-unit. Like the head-unit see the music being paused and assumes I'm getting a call, so it switches to the phone audio...but there's nothing there. I don't know if that's what's happening, it's just an observation.
