Is there a reason it doesn't show Google Assistant or Bixby using the mic in the background? It only seems to show once the conversation is initiated... seems kinda suspicious...

Thoughts?

I think it would be bad if it show the entire time for an assistant that's set to always listen for keywords.

Having it lit up constantly would make the feature useless you will never know when other apps are accessing the mic. Where as I think it's reasonable and everyone should already be aware that assistant apps are set to listen to keywords to activate.

That's just my thought on it.

Yeah that is given but the op wants to know why it's not always lit up since it is listening in background, but having it lit up constantly would break the whole feature of it. since I think it's common knowledge that those apps are set to always listen for the keywords or else it would not work.

Yea, I agree. I would not want the mic dot lit up all the time while Assistant is running in the background !

Hello @DJDoubleU ,

Google Assistant or Bixby using the mic in the background is not shown for better user experience based on feedback received during beta program.
