    When I tap the microphone at the bottom right, I see a flash and the status line (top) and the very bottom show instant evidence of something happening but the mic does not work. (It did work) But if I tap the G (google) at the bottom left I am taken to the search screen (I don't know what to call it) and then the mic there works and I can ask my question verbally. Ideas? I don't recall changing anything. I have restarted.

    Google Launcher, I believe. Never installed any third party ones.

    Google Assistant was working. I just noticed the other day that tapping the Mic did not work.

    I have a video but will have to upload to Youtube that shows the flashing.

    Is everything up to date? My Google search bar on my 3 XL has the Assistant icon on the right, not a microphone icon.

    You can try clearing Google app data and force stop, and another is the pixe launcher in settings>apps clear its data and force stop but will reset your home pages and need to set up again.

    I see some of the reviews say folks have been having a variety of issues and Google's replies say they found the issue and are working on it. Maybe that's my issue. Mine works but only after tapping the G(oogle) icon (on left) and then tapping the mic when it opens.

    An extra step but I guess I can live with it. (or not!)

    Here's a video

    Did you already try clearing the app cache/data for the Google app as mustang7757 suggested?

    By the way, I just noticed the other day that the Google Mic (voice search) is working again. And it was working before I updated to the Feb security update. I did nothing different and did not add or remove any apps. I hate computers (says the old, very old, cobol/ibm computer programmer).
