    When I try to voice command GA with the screen off, it hears me but doesn't do anything other than sound the alert indicating that it heard the activation phrase. This is a problem for me as a truck driver. By law and company policy, i can't touch my phone while driving.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    (I have set it to accept input from my headset and to listen while screen is off)

    Do you run any security lock methods for your phone? The phone has to be unlocked to work I believe.

    I have that set also. Very frustrating that my $250 Moto X Pure was worlds better at this.
    And, I could rename the voice assistant anything I wanted.
