Unable to send messages with Google Assistant 3 Recommended Answers 121 Replies 163 Upvotes

My Fossil Sport used to send text messages no problem but since 2 days ago when I use Google Assistant to send any messages (text or WhatsApp) it sends me to a screen with Google Assistant icon at the top and two options: option 1 is "Turn on" and has an icon with an arrow pointing into phone; option 2 is "Cancel". If I click turn on, it goes back to Google Assistant voice command screen, and if I click cancel, it gives me an error that says "Sorry, unable to obtain permissions." 


All other voice commands seem to be working just fine. Thank you for the help in advance.

Try opening the Messages app on watch and see if it prompts you for adding permissions. Then check the permissions in watch for messages app, and assistant while you're at it.
You can also try clearning cache for assistant, wearos, and google play services on watch. See if that helps.

Yep. I can reply with voice no problem. My default SMS is Android Messages. Before this issue started happening, I didn't even have messages app on my watch and I was still able to send messages. Now I have messages installed and it still doesn't work.

Change language settings on phone to English(US) and restart phone. With this the voice assistant works. The downside is the change in temperature unit from C to F and speed from Kms to Miles...
