Where on my Galaxy S20 FE can I give permission to Google to access my phone contacts via voice commands while I'm driving?

Open your phone settings and scroll down to Apps and then scroll down to Google and under permissions add phone

I would say if you connect via Android Auto, that functionality is already there.  Even if you don't use Android Auto, once you connect your phone to your car via Bluetooth, voice commands are enabled and access to your contacts is automatic.

I was not able to ask Google to call someone on my phone contacts.  Said that I need to giving permission to Assistant Personal results on this device.  Said to make the change in Assistant Settings.  However, Google did make the call if I provided the phone number.

Furthermore, I was not able connect to Subaru Starlink (Forester) via bluebooth, only via USB cable, but still not able to give Google voice commands to call my phone contacts. 

I went to Subaru, they tried to work on it, but couldn't fix the issue. They said it's some setting I have on my phone that's preventing Google from accessing my phone contacts.  I went to the my phone carrier, but they did not either.

Thank you for your help, though.
