I need to have s9 write down what I say, just like my old galaxy4!
I know to hit the little microphone icon on the keyboard, but often it says that I'm offline so it is unable. How can I set it to write down what I say when I am offline? For instance, when I am driving in the car and have a brilliant idea that I want to make a note of to read later?
I am having the same issue when it comes to talk to text on a S9+. I have tried everything and still can not seem to get it to work. When j press the microphone button on the bar with the emojis etc. A gray box pops up at the bottom saying "go to settings and grant permission to use this feature". It has been like this since day one, i never turned anything off or blocked permission. The carrier is Verizon. I have had the phone less than 2 weeks.
