    I spend a lot of time in the car. When I get notification that I have a text message, my screen posts "READ TEXT MESSAGE". When I click on it, nothing happens. The message doesn't get read. Is there a step that I missed?
    Thanks

    Does the phone go into Driving Mode automatically? Have you tried "Hey Google, turn on auto read"? https://support.google.com/assistant...t%20reads%20it.

    Thanks.
    The car goes into Driving Mode OK and when the message comes in, "PLAY MESSAGE" appears but nothing happens when it's clicked.
    Do I have to press the microphone button to play the message?

    I'm not sure, because I don't use this particular feature (my car has its own way of showing and reading back texts that's separate from Google).

    Did you already try the "Hey Google, turn on auto read" feature, or is that already on?

    Thanks. I quess, since I use TEXTRA for messaging, there aren't many users out there that can help me.
    Since receiving text messages while driving is a rare occurrence, I can't replicate the problem easily.
    I've contacted TEXTRA to see if they have any advice.
    In the meantime, I'll just wait for the next time I receive a text message while driving.
    BTW, I couldn't find the AUTO READ setting that you mentioned .
    Anyway, thanks again .

    I don't think Auto Read is a setting in a menu -- it's a Hey Google command for Google Assistant. Did you try that spoken command?

    When I'm in Driving mode, there is a microphone in the lower left corner that opens the Assistant without a "HEY GOOGLE. From there, I can ask anything.
    What I'm trying to say is that when I get a message, I get a VERBAL" YOU HAVE A TEXT MESSAGE ".,with a box that reads" READ ". The last time I received it, I clicked it but it didn't read the message.
    I'm guessing that I should have said" READ MESSAGE ". I'll try it the first chance I get.
