When I have "Play phone voice call on watch" activated, there is constantly a 20-30 second  delay when I answer calls on either my phone or watch where I can hear nothing in the call.    If I make a call from my phone or watch, this delay does not happen.  Makes the function unreliable rendering it unusable.  Please let me know if any questions or comments.  Thanks.

Have sent feedback on Android Wear app.  Also, this is actually second post on this but wanted to bring attention on it again as that is how frustrating the issue is.  Thanks again.

edit - Tested a few times where I answer on watch first and there appears to be consistent sound on the call immediately.  When I switch audio device on the phone call from watch to phone audio or phone speakerphone, I immediately get sound.  In other words, it appears this issue is only happening to me when I want to answer the call on the phone instead of the watch.  I think having this option is very necessary.

Got a very similar issue, but mine extends to making calls from my phone as well. Seems to also happen in Duo

I have the same problem. A temporary fix to the issue:

Once you pick up the call on your phone, while still in the phone app on the incoming call, switch the audio to Bluetooth and then back to Phone. You'll start hearing the caller's voice within 2 seconds of doing this.

I've tried this and I will say it works occasionally but not all the time.  This also defeats the purpose of using the function since I need to switch audio on my phone.  My intentions are to not have my phone by me or have to use it.

Agreed. Also, by the time you are done with switching the audio source, the caller may disconnect the call thinking that there's some issue with the sound on the call.
