Last week Google Assistant officially landed on the smartwatches of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series, thus providing users with an interesting new way to interact with some of the main features of the device.
Obviously, in the following days, there was no lack of complaints from the owners of Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic relating to some “secondary aspects” related to the introduction of support for Google Assistant, such as the worsening of autonomy due to the detection system of the assistant activation command.
An annoying bug on the Samsung Galaxy Watch4
But it seems that a number of users have encountered a more serious pen bug after the installation of Google Assistant: we are referring to a problem due to which Samsung’s smartwatches automatically disconnect from the phone to which they are paired, with subsequent impossibility of reactivate the connection between the two devices.
In particular, it seems that in the event of an attempt to pair smartwatch and smartphone, it is required to proceed as if it were the first time, with the consequent loss of all data and the need to reconfigure the watch.
Also according to the reports, someone had to resort to a hard reset to fix the bug, which is frustrating, to say the least in case you don’t have a backup to recover the data.
The Android Police staff tried to contact both Samsung and Google for more detailed information on this annoying bug, which seems to be quite widespread (although it shouldn’t affect all owners of Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic).
In the past, the use of Google Assistant on smartwatch Wear OS has been characterized by a few bugs too many and this new problem only confirms that there is still a lot of work for the Google team.
