Which assistant app are you using Google or Bixby? Bixby may have a small delay beep between each commands or ask before it confirms


Google will do this on the fly however even if it's not a number in your contacts list and it's a business number that's registered on Google maps

It's Google Assistant there's a problem with it because it all of a sudden it just won't call anymore on my s22. I was mentioning this to my girlfriend who has an S21 and her Google Assistant stopped voice calling a couple of days ago. There's clearly a problem

Hmmm I have an A51 I'll report back to see if there was any API changes soon I don't have calling enabled for my sim card however it still may provide some clue


Update: it appears to be working fine for me this maybe a small programming bug

Try opening settings > apps > Google > Storage

It may say manage storage but tsp clear cache...if the issue persists tsp clear data note that this will reset the Google search app and automatically log itself back in but it may clear the bugged condition

That's nice of you I appreciate it. If I ask the assistant to call a number I've asked it to call a zillion times before it just goes to a map or search or whatever that name sounds like to the assistant but won't make a call. Odd that is happening on the S21 in Florida at the same time

I cleared the entire phone cash, I cleared Google cache and Google data which I hated to do. No change Google Assistant will answer any of my questions but will not make a phone call

That's even weirder does it ask who you would like to call when asked?
