Google Assistant not working with Active edge on 3a?

If you have a smartwatch turn off the remote Bluetooth settings.  It appears to be waiting for you to speak into your smartwatch microphone.  This is why Active edge only worked when I was holding the phone with my LEFT hand, which is the arm where I wear my S3 Frontier.  I was too dumb to notice!

Google couldn't have buried this menu better if they tried!

Re: Google Assistant not working with Active edge on 3a?

Thanks!  I too have a Gear S3 Frontier paired with the Pixel 3a and was having the same problem.  I could activate active edge on the 3a but it would never hear what I said.  After turning the bluetooth recording setting off, it worked as expected.  Much appreciated!
