    I think I know the answer to this anyway, but throwing it out there in case:

    Is there a way on the S8 to have Google Assistant always listening for the OK Google command at ALL times? Like with Hey Siri.

    It works if charging or if the screen is on, but if sitting next to my bed with just AOD on, it doesn't fire up, even though I have all of the options set to always listen. Am I being dumb?

    Also, while I'm at it - there isn't a way to change the default voice to text on the Samsung keyboard from Bixby back to Google is there? I like the Samsung keyboard but Bixby doesn't understand a damn word I say!

    If the screen is locked, "OK, Google" will not work. Security I guess.

    As for your other question, it's a good one. I would like to know this too if anyone else can help out.

    This was the only thing I disliked about my note 7. I'm not sure if it's done to save battery or what but that's one of my only real dislikes about Samsung phones.
