QC 35 II Android 12 / Google Assistant
I got a new Pixel 4a 5G a few weeks ago and updated it to the Android 12 beta. At first, everything was fine with my headphones and the Bose Connect app - until a couple of days ago. I know that the Bose app and my headphone firmware had not updated at this point. Now, when I press the Assistant button I just get, "Open the Google Assistant on your phone, then try that button again". I've tried everything, restarting the phone and headphones, unpairing, resetting the app, clearing Google Play Services, reinstalling the Google App but the headphones refuse to work with Google Assistant. I tried Amazon Alexa and that seems fine on Android 12.
One thing I have noticed is that under Google Assistant settings it is impossible to remove the headphones. This is under Assistant>Settings>Google Assistant>Devices>Personal. Even if I re-name the headphones in the Bose App the name doesn't change. So it would seem that Google Assistant is paired with a different incarnation of my headphones 😀 This is true on other versions of Android.
I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has the headphones working with Google Assistant on Android 12 and what version of the beta you are on please? Failing this, I'll try to roll back the phone to Android 11. Thanks.
