    Default Voice commands not working

    If I use the touch less voice feature ("OK, Google Now") to initiate a voice command, the phone properly recognizes my voice and shows the translated search text on the screen. But it pauses for about 5-10 seconds and then always results in "Can't reach Google at the moment." I have strong WiFi and LTE connections. Yet If I tap the microphone icon on this error screen and repeat the search using Google's dialog, the search always works. Or, if I tap the voice search from the Google Now screen, it also always works.

    So it seems what whatever handoff from Moto's voice search to Google's search stopped working.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Default Re: Voice commands not working

    Mine has been doing that too at random times. I think I notice most of the time (perhaps always?) When on WiFi.

    Fixed it. I went into the app manager, found Google Search, and deleted all the updates. As soon as I did that voice search went back to normal and works every time again.

    And, as soon as I reinstall the Google Search updates, the problems return. Let's hope Google fixes this soon!
