Screen times out when there is activity

I used to be able to talk into my phone to send an email/text/note to myself for as long as I needed. Now the screen goes black (sleep mode) according to my settings–however, there have NOT been 30 seconds of inactivity–the phone has been typing as I’ve been talking. Is this a phone issue or a google issue? And can you tell me how to fix it?

  • Which phone?
  • Are you using the latest messaging app? Re: PSA: Google Messenger Now Android Messages
  • Try changing the timeout period to something other than the 30 sec, then test … if OK then try 30 sec again and re-test (sometimes the computer forgets what it’s supposed to do )
