    Finally trying my S9 as my main driver. Running Android 9.

    Home screen has Google field there (I may have put it there a while ago; I don't recall). In the field it says Say "Hey Google" at the right of the field before the mic icon, but when I say it nothing happens (regardless of whether I'm using a Bluetooth headset or not). I have to tap the icon, and then it works.

    How do I make it activate using voice?

    Make sure Voice Match is turned on in the Google Assistant settings. If it already is, you may want to try retraining the voice model.

    Also, make sure Bixby isn't enabled for voice activation.

    Also make sure that Bixby is not set as default assistant in default apps.

    On most phones, both are available.
