I bought a Galaxy S10 (sorry, found S20 but not S10 thread here) updated to Android 12 on Amazon, and voice commands / Hey Google worked out-of-the-box. But after activating the phone and installing a couple apps, it hasn't worked since. In the past week I've researched and attempted over a dozen suggested fixes to get Assistant working again, including of course the default setup process, but none have resolved the issue.
Even doing a complete factory data reset didn't get it working, and then subsequently attempting all the recommended fixes again. I even deleted the device from my Google account thinking installation might be drawing some setup data info from the cloud. That didn't have any affect, but I'm still wondering if this still might be a problem with data being pulled from elsewhere in the cloud.
I'll be returning the phone for a replacement at this point, but I'm wondering if anyone can confirm that Hey Google / Google Assistant and related voice commands do work for people with S10 phones updated to Android 12. Otherwise I may look into purchasing a different model.
Thanks for any and all feedback!
