Can no longer ask Google questions via Bluetooth in car? 0 Recommended Answers 36 Replies 122 Upvotes

Hi,I used to be able to ask the Google Assistant questions (like what's the weather or what's the traffic on my way to work) from my car's Bluetooth, but it recently stopped working. I press the Bluetooth button (on the steering wheel) which activates the Google Assistant and it makes the normal bing noise indicating the phone is waiting for verbal input. I ask a question and then nothing happens, almost like it doesn't hear anything. After a few seconds (much quicker than normal) it makes the second "timeout" bing noise. The strange thing is, some functions still work - like I can dictate text messages or ask Google to read my text messages, or I can have it save a reminder, or make a call, all via the button in the car over Bluetooth. So the core assistant functions continue to work but for more general questions there's no response? I'm using a Samsung S6 (yes, I need a new phone) and the car is a BMW. Has anyone else noticed a similar issue? I would say this stopped working after an update to the app maybe 2-4 weeks ago.
