Hey google only vibrates

I have a Samsung S9+, and after a recent update, when you say "hey google" or "ok google", it no longer beeps or repeats the voice.  I used to use this to find my phone and I can only ask something like "what time is it" to get it to say something.  How do I turn this back on to beep or for google assistant to speak again???
