Android Google Voice shitting shit

Post by stuart @ Sun Nov 06, 2016 2:04 pm

My phone is being a complete and utter cnut today.

It keeps stopping playing the music it's playing and some awful shrill voice goes "Unable to use Google voice offline. Once it is safe tap the screen blah fcuking blah"

I've been into settings and I can't see anyway to turn this off and I have no idea how it's got turned on anyway. It's not something I would ever use, ever.

One place online said to turn off "Ok Google" word detection, but that is off on my phone and it's still doing it.

How do I make it shut up. THe phone is in my pocket with headphones attached when it's doing this and the screen is off / locked.

It's really annoying!

Just tell me how to make it stop.

Is your phone getting wet and moving about from the sweat and chafing?

Could you take it to a phone shop at lunchtime?

I've figured out what it's doing.

It's in my pocket and moving around, this is causing it to hit the unlock button.

It's unlocking and the screen is somehow activating the speech thing on the unlock screen. This then activates voice recognition and it tries to recognise what is being said. However, because I'm outside in Glasgow it doesnt recognise the noise. This makes it try to go online to get a language pack. It can't do this since there is no data connection so it speaks this error about needing to install a language pack.

Shit.

SO I'm installing a custom OS right now on it (Cyanogenmod), since there is no way to remove the voice recognition from the unlock screen!

Seriously - Have you turned it off and back on again?

Prepare for random crashes, overheating, battery drain and general "shit not working right".
