Google Assistant was using speech output to read results, and it just stopped working.  It says enabled in watch settings/google/assistant/speech output, but not reading aloud.  Re-install did not fix.  Anyone know how to re-enable?

How are you invoking Google assistant? With the recent switch to gemini it will only automatically speak if you have "hey Google" enabled and use that to wake it. If you use the swipe gesture to wake it or just open the app it will only speak responses if you press the speaker icon after it shows you it's response.

I do not have Hey Google enabled on the watch.  I use the side button to activate.  I don't see a speaker icon during the text response??

Enabling Hey Google still only produced text results, no speech output.
