I can no longer use voice control to initiate a call or send a message. This problem started today, when I attempted to call home when I left work. I have done this everyday for a year, using voice control, and suddenly today I got the message "Unfortunately, that's not available on this device." I then tried to send a text, and received the same error message. I have rebooted my phone, and clear cache, but this did not help. I am using a OnePlus 3T running Android 8.0.0

What happens if you restart your phone and turn ON, ok Google? 
  1. On your phone or tablet, touch and hold the Home button or say "Ok Google."
  2. At the top right, tap  More   Settings.
  3. Under "Devices," select your phone or tablet.
  4. Turn on Google Assistant  turn “Ok Google” detection on or off.
    • If you don’t see these steps, you’re using an earlier version of the Google app. Instead, tap "Ok Google" detection  turn Say "Ok Google" any time on or off.
