    When activating the google assistant ("ok google") over any Bluetooth device (speaker, headset, car, etc), there's a loud continuous dial-tone/DTMF like sound. This makes the assistant feature useless. The bug seems to have been introduced in a recent update to the Google app (after version 7.16.19.21) and mostly occurs with Samsung phones, although other brand phones may also be impacted. The only solution is to uninstall updates to the app. So far Google has not acknowledged the issue.

    Here's the thread on the google product forum: https://productforums.google.com/for...g/aGeCSq2WCAAJ

    I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum, since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    Same issue here using Samsung Galaxy S6 and Motorola Sonic Rider. When pressing the the button to activate voice controls produces a constant dial tone / fax machine type sound.
