Folks. I’ve made two observations… and one is BIG. Something that I’ve had legitimate issues with in the past.
Firstly- Kristian has confirmed that there should not be any difference in audio transparency quality as a result of the Mimi system. Although, I am almost certain that I’m experiencing a positive difference. more clarity my own voice is less muffled to me… Has anyone else felt this?
Two - the BIG one. For anyone who uses google assistant you’ll know that you can ask your phone to play a song and it will open your music library or spotify and automatically play. Or you can say ‘Schedule an appointment’ and you can dictate a calendar reminder. Or you can ask the phone to read your messages. WELL, all this worked fine for me— when the screen was ON and unlocked. If I tried these commands with the screen off (IE in my pocket where I most likely want to use handsfree voice commands) it would never work.
The spotify command was recognised but the song wouldn’t actually play, until I hit the power button, then the app would open and it’d play almost like it was just queued.
The calendar appointment command just wouldn’t work at all with google telling me it can’t help with that. Again, if the screen was on, NO problems.
Asking to read message again prompted me to be told google couldn’t do that. With the screen on zero issue.
SO! after updating to 3.2 today, I am soooooo happy to report that all these functions are functioning while the phone is locked and screen off. If ANYONE has had issues like this in the past, rerun your tests as you may be surprised like I am!!
BTW I’m not assigning any blame to Bragi, or Google, or android as I have no idea where the issue lay, but all I know is it’s working now
