    Hello folks,

    A few weeks ago my phone stopped giving confirmation beeps when I use OK Google. I've cleared cache and app data, rebooted and no luck. The app works fine otherwise and all other sounds like talking back work fine.

    Any ideas?

    I've noticed that as well, on at least 3 of my devices (Nexus 6P, Nexus 5, Zenfone 2). My phone only vibrates when I say OK Google. Not sure if this was intentional. One caveat is that I'm on the beta program for the Google app.

    I was in beta for maps and stopped it. The beep still happens in maps I realized today...

    Someone in another thread pointed me to this and it worked: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho....php?p=5447351

    That killed my frame rate. Everything was running at 30fps instead of 60.... Eww

    I turned it in for Nova instead and it works without the FPS hit

    Yeah, I saw that in another thread as well, but I don't have an option to switch services on. And if I turn that option on for Nova, it gives me a warning that it'll prevent the lockscreen from enhancing data encryption (whatever that means).

    Someone else in that thread said download or re-enable Talk Back, then the Switch Access option will appear. Another person said making a change to any accessibility setting will resolve the issue.

    I could see/feel it. I should say roughly 30fps. On an older phone via developer mode I could turn on an fps counter, I'm sure it's the same here I just didn't do that.

    Ah, thanks! But turning on Switch Access still gives the warning that the lockscreen won't be used to enhance data encryption. Anyone know what exactly that means?

    I think Google fixed it. I just disabled TalkBack and tried it again--OK Google tone is back!

    S5 phone from Verizon here. Settings>>>Accessibility>>>>Services. I don't see switch access on my S5. I see Direct Access and I tapped on that and I show that it is off....so talkback was never turned on. Under services I show..... Support & Protection.....Floatify and Light Flow. So I tapped on Floatify and turned that on. Got my beep back doing that. I then tapped on Floatify again and turned it off and.....NO beep. So I turned on Floatify again and got my beep back. I don't think Google fixed it. Weird.

    Just tried turning off Switch Access and only get vibrations, so I turned it back on and get the tone.

    Yeah, other people have noted this as well. I'm on the beta of the Google app, so it's possible they pushed the fix for the beta only. Hopefully this means the fix will be coming soon in an upcoming update for the stable version.
