I have a LeEco (Le X820) which is an Asian phone. But works very well on AT&T frequencies.
It's a very powerful phone so I don't want to give it up just cause I'm in the US now.
But I want to make Google Voice Typing work.
I actually got Google Voice Typing working on my Amazon Fire Tablet and I thought the process would be the same: Install Google then select GBoard from the Language and Input menu.
This actually (almost) worked! I now have the little microphone icon, but when I click it, it says initializing takes a moment and fails. It doesn't get a message or anything it just blinks off. And if I repeat it the second time it just does nothing.
Anyone have any suggestions?
