    Hello everyone, i'm new to the Note 20 Ultra coming from my iphone 10s Max. With my iphone i could tell siri to "turn on the kitchen light" or "turn on the porch light" without having to unlock my phone. With the Note 20 Ultra when i say "hey google turn off the kitchen light" it tells me i need to unlock my phone first. Is this a setting I can turn off or am I going to have to live with this? Thanks for any help!

    I believe you have to unlock your phone to use assistant.

    Samsung Bixby isn't that great. It won't even turn on my wemo lights etc. Google seems to better. So there's no way around having to unlock the phone to use Google for automation?

    Not sure if you tried enabling this option in Google Assistant but it's worth a shot.
