Honor 8: Is OK Google Troubling You?

Huawei’s Honor 8 is the company’s first ever dual camera smartphone launched in the US. This device is essentially a millennial product boasting a premium-vibe with its glass-reared design.

This device is definitely an impressive offering from the Chinese manufacturer but it looks like some owners have been having some issues with the OK Google feature.

Based on an Android Central forum thread, some users are receiving an error message “com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox:interactor will not be able to record right now” whenever they access video or microphone in apps such as Soundhound and Snapchat.

This is especially annoying as it appears to pop up over the apps currently being used. Previously, this issue is reported to be solved by turning off Google voice detection, OK Google.

However, now it can’t be turned off despite the owners trying multiple times. Some even resorted to restarting their device and unclicking the option several times. But the problem still persisted.

Well, if you have been in a similar situation with your Honor 8 device, try denying microphone access for Google via the permissions settings. Alternatively, you could even try deleting the OK Google voice model to rectify this issues.

The Honor 8, featuring a 5.2-inch full HD display, sports two 12MP rear-facing cameras and it is powered by a 3,000mAh battery along with a 4GB RAM. The device is available in 32GB and 64GB versions – both running on Huawei’s own Kirin 950 chipset.
