Talk to text seems to be disabled

What phone do you have?

What plan are you on?

Does your plan include data, or just talk & text?

Issue Description

I have lost my talk to text ability on both the phone’s default SMS app (Messaging version 5.1-14), and Messenger. The little microphone icon has changed on both apps, as well. The little mike icon is now hollow in the middle, if that makes any sense? When I press it in either app, NOTHING happens. If I have an unread SMS, the SMS icon at the top of my Home screen blinks off when I press the microphone icon on my text app. Just now happened. I did nothing. I powered down and back up, no difference.

Hi @keithr.vqvuhu and welcome to the Member Community. Not sure if the following “how to” applies to your phone or situation.

Might be worth trying the steps. Also might be worth making sure Google Messages and Gboard are updated.

Others might have some more specific ideas too!

Just wanted to let you know- SUCCESS!! Thanks SO much, I am very happy now.
