I have both a Samsung Galaxy S4 and an S5, as well as a Samsung Galaxy Note II and an Acer Iconia tablet, and I'm having the same issue on ALL FOUR DEVICES: whether I click the cue card "Set up Voice Match" via the Google Home app, or whether I go to the Google Now app's Settings | Voice menu and click on "OK Google detection" and choose "From any screen", either way, when the next screen appears to train the phone to recognize my voice it just sits there spinning a little circular progress icon with the words "Listening..." and never quite progressing past that even though I repeat the words "OK Google" loud and clear!
Something else I've noticed is that at times I get a small toast notification near the bottom of the screen saying, "Trouble with the microphone, please try again in a few seconds."
Has anyone had this issue and resolved it successfully?
Here's what I've already tried:
- Disabling Samsung S-Voice (both via its settings and also freezing it using Titanium Backup)
- Switching from WIFI to mobile data
- Updating both Google Now and Google Home
None of the above has helped the situation any. There was a time where this worked just fine, but I can't tell when it stopped because it's been a while since I went back to it. Please help! Thanks.
