    Thanks for responding. Yes I have. The camera opens but doesn't take a picture. I've added 10 seconds to the command but it still doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

    I don't think you did anything wrong. Send your feedback to Google Assistant team.

    It seems you're not alone. Which camera app version do you have?

    Good news. I cleared the cache, forced A STOP,,re-enabled, and TAKE A PICTURE worked.

    There's a work around by downloading Google camera 6.3 here https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...-apk-download/

    It adds nightsight but moves panorama from the quick menu to the "more" menu. I installed it and now "take a photo" and "take a selfie" work from Google assistant.

    I can't get Google assistant to take a picture via voice command even after trying the above. Also, the flip to open phone gesture no longer works.
    I got up this am and found that TAKE A PICTURE didn't work again. I tried the procedure above again and it now works. I don't know what going on but I'll keep those instructions handy. Good luck.

    I'm not on the beta. I guess that's the problem. I'll just live with it until the full version of Q arrives. Thanks for everyone's help.
