'OK Google' is the voice command application which offers complete Google services to the users through the voice. This feature reduces the effort related to the surfing or browsing. Now the users can start by saying OK Google and then their needs. Google will present the search result within a quick span of time. This is a great app.

Despite having the excellent features, sometimes OK Google stops responding and as a result users get an issue ‘OK Google not working’, but the solution is simple and to fix the issue, users need to perform multiple tasks and the same are listed below.

Selection of relevant language

'OK Google' runs with the voice command, i.e. speaking language. The default language is the US English, if your selected language is another one, then:

·         Open Google App.

·         Go to the menu section and select Settings.

·         Tap on Voice section and there, you will get multiple options; tap on Language.

·         Thereafter, language list will appear, select ‘English US’ and tap on Save.

Check Microphone of your device

Sometimes, the debris gets accumulated in the device and as a result, microphone does not work properly and if OK Google is not working and you need to confirm this reason behind the issue, then open Google App and at the right end, you will find the microphone icon, if it is bold then your microphone is working fine and if you found the microphone icon in dotted line, then clean the debris from your device.

Update Google App

·         Open Google Play Store.

·         Tap on the Menu icon and select ‘My apps and games’.

·         Thereafter, list of applications will appear; select Google App and tap Update.

The above-said methods will resolve your issues, if still persist then update the language pack and for the same, open Language settings and then select ‘offline speech recognition’. Now tap on ‘English US’ and further tap on ‘Update’. After completing the process, restart your device and then look for OK Google. This time, it will work perfectly.
