    Hi

    I can use Google Now to send SMS (command: 'send message to Eva') - everything is recognized and i can dictate message later and send it.

    However, when i try 'send whatsapp message to Eva' (or 'send hangout messsage to Eva'), assistant says: 'You don't have an account for Eva Martinez'.
    I can send Whatstapp or Hangout message to that person manually (so i have these accounts, right?)

    I found problems like that on internet, for Nexus 6P mainly, but there was no solution at the end...

    re-Enter yours+eva contacts it may help..Post results

    i can send messages to everyone using Hangouts or Whatsapp - but only by doing it manually (using fingers). I have these people in Contacts (there is WhatsApp icon there and i can click it and send message by WhatsApp/Hangout).

    and i thought that 'Hangout' isn't 'a third party' app

    😉 You're right 'Hangout' is part of Google.com - As next step go thru this

    I had this problem. What I did was uninstall and reinstall whatsapp and that fixed the issue for me.
