I just got the Buds Pro, but unfortunately, I don't see any support for the Google Assistant like in previous iterations; only Bixby. Does anyone know if there's a way to enable this, and if not why Samsung made this decision?

Yes, its not an issue its just Samsung trying to push Google out of the image, thats why there's Google calender and Samsung calender, Samsung Bixby and Google assistant, etc. So there is sadly no way to fix this. This Samsung v. Google quiet war has been around for a while.

it's just surprising that they added Google Assistant support over Bixby support with the 1st Gen Buds and now they're removing it again.

Just updated with a fix, check it out!

**UPDATE: A workaround was found on Reddit. 1. Open Bixby app. 2. Go into task view. 3. Click the Bixby icon. 4. Click App Info. 5. Click "Set as default" or "Defaults". 6. Click "Clear Defaults". 7. Go back to the Wearable app, and to the "Touch and Hold settings." From here, you can choose "Voice Assistant" and it will prompt you to choose between Google and Bixby.
