I like the idea of using the Dash as a hearable like it’s intended, not just for listening to music. I walk around my house sometimes with the Dash in, connected to my phone and just on transparency mode and experimenting with dipping in and out of use case scenarios with it.
One thing i’ve noticed is an issue with google now and most recently google assistant. It seems to deny lots of voice commands when the screen is off,not even locked, just off- but work fine when the screen is on. A prime example would be me having my phone in my pocket and dash in with a desire to make a calendar appointment. I’ll launch the assistant from the 4D menu and say ‘Schedule and appointment’ but I get told that google is sorry, but it cannot help, or doesn’t know how to respond to it etc… but if I simply hit the standby button to turn the phone on it works fine. Slightly frustrating as it defeats the purpose!
I’m sure I’ve encountered more than one issue like this but the above is the only exact scenario I can remember. Has anyone had similar experiences? could it be a google security setting?
Grateful if anyone with experience of trying to use their phone via dash and assistant could share experience in here.
Other scenario… asking google assistant to “play xx song by XX band on Spotify” with the screen on will automatically go in and play the song for you when the screen is on. Same command with screen off and it definitely doesn’t auto play- often the app won’t even launch.
