When I try to turn on voice activation for Bixby in my Galaxy Note 8, it prompts me to talk to the phone, to let Bixby get familiarized with my voice. But no matter how loud I talk, it says it can’t hear me. I tried restarting the phone, and I verified the latest version of Bixby software is installed. If I talk to the phone for other purposes, it hears and understands me fine. What could be the problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey, first make sure your phone is completely up to date (any new update needs to be installed before completing next steps). Next go to Settings > Apps > Bixby Voice > Storage > tap Clear Data. Repeat these steps for Bixby Home, Bixby Service, Bixby Vision and Bixby Voice. Let us know if this solves the issue. Thanks!
Were this troubleshooting steps helpful with the activation?
I performed the procedure described, then restarted my phone. Prior to that, I just installed the latest Android update from Verizon. Now when I launch Bixby, and I get to the point of familiarizing Bixby with my voice, the same problem occurs that was occurring before. After I've been speaking for a few minutes, Bixby says it can't hear me.
bixby voice and bixby service say "no permissions required" and if I go to the permissions screen it says "no permissions". If I click the overflow button, there is an item "all permissions". Bixby home has some permissions explicitly listed but not microphone, and the same item in the overflow menu. If I make a video recording there is sound.
