It's simple as the "title" says:

There's no way of Activate the "Access with voice match" option because it's greyed out for no reason.
I tried E V E R Y  P O S S I B L E  S O L U T I O N  I could manage to find on the web with no luck.

I'm on a Meizu Pro 7 (China Version)
G-apps doesn't come in by default but I managed to get everything working properly.

Best regards!

Hello, thanks for taking the time to post your issue.
Are you using the Google Assistant GO edition?
Or does your phone have what you need to use the Google Assistant app?

Hello James!

First of all, thanks for the reply!

No, I'm not using Google Assistant Go.
I didn't even know about it since you told me.
I tried to install it via GPlay but it says my phone doesn't support it. (I've also tried via an .apk file but I cannot install it)

Yes, I've got everything I need to use Google Assistant.
Everything works well with Google App/Google Assistant, indeed. The only BIG problem is the one I stated in the original post, the one I'm also showing here with a screen shot.

I tried EVERYTHING I could find on the internet but I cannot use "Ok Google always on" on my phone for, apparently, no reason!
If I'm on my home screen (Nova Launcher) I can use both Google Feed (by swiping from the left to the right) and the "Ok Google" Voice command but once I'm outside of the home screen, I cannot open the assistant anymore because I can't turn that setting on!

Do you have any suggestions avoiding common things I've (probably) already just found on the web?

Thanks in advance!
