Google is working to get “Hey Google” working on Wear OS

- Advertisment -

According to a report from 9to5Google, activating the Google Assistant by saying “Hey Google” has been broken for months.

Google said it is now working on a fix, saying that it is “aware of the issues some users have been encountering” and will help its partners “address these and improve the overall experience.”

There are a good number of users reporting the issue — a post on Google’s Issue Tracker has almost a thousand stars. Reading through the thread, it’s clear that many users with different smartwatch models are all reporting the same issue going back to November 2020.

Google has not made it clear how long it will be until the issue is fixed, but hopefully it gets attention now.

While Wear OS may not be core to Google’s strategy, the Assistant seems to be, and it’d be nice for people who have chosen to put Google’s OS on their wrists to have easy access to it.
